Ronda Rousey will join the likes of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Gina Carano as MMA athletes to appear in ESPN The Magazine’s The Body Issue.

The magazine hits newsstands July 13. Rousey will likely appear nude, but with items strategically placed.

Rousey is the lone MMA athlete to be selected this year, joining the likes of NFL star Maurice Jones-Drew, WNBA standout Candice Parker and seven members of the U.S. Olympic volleyball team.

Rousey will make her first defense of her Strikeforce women’s title in August against Sarah Kaufman.
