UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones will be the latest mixed martial arts fighter to appear in his birthday suit for the 2011 edition of ESPN Magazine's "The Body Issue."
USA Today has more:
Over 20 athletes will appear naked (with private parts strategically covered) in the "Bodies We Want" section of the 2011 issue, said editor-in-chief Chad Millman. The mag's third "exploration and celebration of the athletic form" hits newsstands Oct. 7.
The other male athletes: speedskater Apolo Ohno; NHL player Ryan Kesler; UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones; IndyCar racer Helio Castroneves; snowboarder Louie Vito; boxer Sergio Martinez; marathoner Ryan Hall and paralympian Jeremy Campbell.
"This is an issue in the short time we've been doing it that's become pretty anticipated," says Millman. "In terms of the athletes we've attracted, we feel like the group is really strong."
ESPN the Magazine's third annual "Body Issue" will hit newsstands next week. Any Maniacs plan on picking up a copy? Or does the idea of Jonny and his bone not appeal to you?
Before you decide, be advised that gymnast Alicia Sacramone and soccer goalie Hope Solo will also appear sans clothes.
