Michelle Waterson to appear nude in ESPN’s ‘The Body Issue’

UFC strawweight Michelle Waterson (14-5) will return back to her modeling roots as she will appear in the upcoming annual ESPN ‘The Body Issue’ magazine which hits newstands July 7.

The Body Issue is an edition of ESPN The Magazine that features dozens of athletes in nude and semi-nude photographs, which is intended to rival the annual Swimsuit Issue from Sports Illustrated.

“The Karate Hottie” began a modeling career in 2004, right after high school but before entering mixed martial arts competition.

Waterson joins Ronda Rousey, Evangelista and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos (now Cristiane Justino), Miesha Tate, Jon Jones and most recently Conor McGregor to appear in the yearly magazine special.

The ninth annual “Body Issue” will come out July 7 and photos and videos are coming to on July 5.

Waterson, 31, will join pro athletes like Ezekiel Elliott, Julian Edelman and Javier Baez in the issue.

UPDATE: The magazine has since been released and you can view the photos here.
