UFC strawweight contender Michelle Waterson will be on the cover of this year’s ESPN Magazine’s Body Issue.

In the video below, you can see behind-the-scenes footage of Waterson’s nude photo shoot.

Other fighters to have taken naked photos for the magazine including former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino, and Gina Carano.

Waterson is coming off a disappointing submission loss to Rose Namajunas back in April. In her previous fight, Waterson earned the biggest win in her UFC career when she submitted Paige VanZant in the main event of a UFC on FOX event in December.

Overall, Waterson is a former Invicta Atomweight Champion. She is also currently ranked No. 6 in the official UFC women’s strawweight rankings.
