Video sneak peek: Sword-wielding Michelle Waterson is naked, beautiful in ESPN Body Issue

Skip to 1:13!

If you like beautiful women, especially when they take off their clothes and wield deadly samurai swords, then I have great news.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight Michelle Waterson, no stranger to modeling (or looking incredible), will be featured — sans clothing — in the upcoming ESPN Magazine “Body Issue” for 2017.

Joining “Karate Hottie” will be two-time NBA All-Star Isaiah Thomas of the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz and his wife, Julie Ertz, of the U.S. women's soccer team, and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, just to name a few.

See the full list here.

Waterson (14-5), who last saw action against Rose Namajunas at UFC on FOX 24, joins past UFC fighters Jon Jones and Miesha Tate, among others, on the list of mixed martial arts (MMA) combatants featured in the high-profile spot.

The ninth annual Body Issue hits newsstands July 7; however, online pics and video will be available July 5.
