Ronda Rousey Poses Nude, 'Bares Butt Cheeks' In Body Paint

Ronda Rousey's body paint experiments are getting lots of happy feedback from her fans. The photos of Rousey posing nude except for what TMZ refers to as a "very thin" coat of paint on her super-fit body show Ronda "frolicking in the waves" and "striking several saucy poses" in the photos for Sports Illustrated. Round 2 for Ronda "posing up a storm" in colorful body paint cleverly applied to look like a swimsuit is "proving once again what a knockout she is."

The shots on Petite Martinique are filled with sun, sea, sand, and a totally nude Ronda. Rousey seems to be perfectly comfortable and is clearly "getting used to being naked" as she tosses her hair and splashes in the water. At one point, Ronda turn around to "show off her pert behind" and "very toned derriere" exposed in the painted high rise swimsuit, and the photographer caught some sexy shots of the UFC fighter. The 28-year-old is relaxed and at ease in her body paint, and the colorful creation she's wearing only makes the whole thing more fun.

The first part of the Sports Illustrated shoot earlier this month also featured Ronda in a painted swimsuit, but it was black and white and has a whole different vibe. Paparazzi photos of Ronda in the more austere black and white paint quickly hit social media, and fans got an eyeful of the "trim and toned" Rousey posing meditatively on the beach. Some snaps saw her leaning against an angled piece of driftwood, while others caught Rousey resting on a rock and looking off to the side with a thoughtful expression on her face.One fan was so over the moon that he tweeted, "Oh me oh my my! Body paint never looked so good?"

The black and white body paint poses showed a quieter, more subdued side of Ronda, compared to the wildly colored swimsuit in the second set. Rousey had a blast "flaunting her figure" and moving around a lot more. That could be because of a growing confidence as she gets used to the public nudity. According to the Daily Mail, the second set of snaps appears to show Ronda "taking some direction" from the photography team, with several of the snaps catching her glancing back over her shoulder at the camera as if she's "taking some advice on her poses."

The former bantamweight champion's "distinctive ankle tattoos" and wrist ink were easily visible in the shots, just as they were earlier in the month when they gave away the fact that it was Rousey posing for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Observant Ronda fans noticed the tattoos when editor MJ Day teased a pic on Instagram of the "anonymous model's derriere," and the secret was out.Fans were happy to hear the news that Ronda would be in the next Swimsuit Edition and thanked MJ for the unintentional announcement. One fan took to Twitter to write, "God bless you" to MJ Day.[Photo by Tinseltown]
