“The ESPN Body Issue has to do with commemorating the peak of human prospective and the kind of type the human body, when specialized, can really appear like. The Swimsuit Issue has a lot more [of a] sexual side to it, while I don’t believe the Body Issue is overtly sexual whereas Sports Illustrated is,” said Rousey. “The difference in how I approached it is when I presented for ESPN Body, I truly tried to be a lot more cut and a lot more close to my prime fighting shape due to the fact that I was being photographed as a boxer and attempting to look more like a competitor.”.

Rousey continued, “I intentionally tried to get a little bit heavier for the SI issue so I was a little bit curvier and not in leading battle shape look but the take a look at which I feel I’m the most appealing. It’s really natural for an individual’s body to go through periods.”.
