Recently, MMA fighter Ronda Rousey confirmed that she will be featured in ESPN: The Magazine's annual body issue in 2012. The Strikeforce women's bantamweight champion suggested via Twitter that anyone interested in seeing her "artistically nude" should be sure to pick up a copy of the magazine in July.
Rousey is one of 27 athletes who will be featured in the magazine's fourth annual body issue. Among those joining her are Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, soccer star Abby Wambach, Knicks star Tyson Chandler and Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew.
