ESPN The Body Issue 2012: Warning, Do Not Approach Naked Ronda Rousey

Photos from the latest ESPN The Magazine Body Issue have landed, and in this year’s issue we get to see Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey in nothing but pink gloves … possibly our only chance to ever do so without being glared at and having our arms ripped off.

The Body Issue is no stranger to MMA stars in the buff, lest we forget last year’s epic Jon ‘Bones’ Jones naked and peeing into a swimming pool effort. Nobody gets it that badly this year, but some of the more bizarre highlights include a naked jockey letting a horse lick his head, a lady with no legs climbing a rope swing and nude sailboat sailing. Maybe they should change the issue topic from “bodies we want” to “bodies we want doing things we wouldn’t be photographed doing with clothes on”.

Anyway, after the jump are a few choice shots from the issue (we can’t include them all, we want you to visit ESPN for that) including Ronda’s full appearance. Naked horse-licked jockey not included.

(you’re welcome)

Sorry for the edit. THANKS A LOT FOR RESTRICTING MY ABILITIES TO SHARE BARE ASS, UPROXX.

The US Women’s Volleyball Team, naked and competing in The Matrix, apparently.

A fantastic shot of surfer Maya Gabeira.

Abby Wambach, because Hope Solo was too busy doing steroids to appear in this year’s issue.

Tennis player Daniela Hantuchova, whose last name sounds way too much like “hunch over”.

Golfer Suzann Pettersen, whose real name is probably “Susan Peterson”.
