If you think Ronda Rousey's stock is going down after coughing up her title to Holly Holm last year, think again.
The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's Bantamweight champion recently learned that for the first time ever, she would be one of three women chosen to grace the cover of the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
And she wasn't too cool to show her true emotions upon hearing the news (via Fox Sports):
Congrats to @Hailey_Clauson, @theashleygraham, & @RondaRousey for making history with this year's 3-cover #SISwim!https://t.co/mnX2bXI6wa— TBS Network (@TBSNetwork) February 14, 2016
Rousey will share the honor with models Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson.
You've been teased repeatedly with her now-infamous body paint pictures, but you'll be able to get the full gallery when the magazine hits newsstands next week.
The accomplishment is the latest for "Rowdy," who also made history a few weeks ago when she hosted "Saturday Night Live" (see the video replay here).
Such an honor to share the cover with @theashleygraham and @haileyclauson for @si_swimsuit! pic.twitter.com/2xRkdNXmwC— Ronda Rousey (@RondaRousey) February 14, 2016
