UFC strawweight Rose Namajunas has stripped down to her birthday suit in support of Women’s Health Magazine. The TUF 20 alum bore it all for a campaign called “Naked in 3 Words” and revealed part of the shoot today on her Instagram.
She wrote: “Cut,The,Shit. Be yourself, work hard, love your body and put your best self forward. What are your 3 words?”
Namajunas explained to Women’s Health why she took part in the shoot.
“My naked body is … the story of my whole life. There’s a lot around us that we can’t control, but my body, my mind, and my soul are pretty much the only things that I can. All the scars on my body, all the bumps and bruises, all the muscles – that is a story of everything I have done. And it’s not just my story. My ancestors who came before me gave me this vessel to sculpt and mold.”
“I have a middle finger that was jammed in one of my craziest fights, and it looks like a swollen turkey to this day. There’s a bone chip that’s in there, and it’s a reminder that this finger contributed to my fight, and to my beautiful house, to everything in my life. It might be ugly, but it’s mine and I love it. I’ve got some big old knees, big old feet. I could nitpick, but at the same time, I think it’s all friggin’ beautiful.”
