No clothes needed! Sports Illustrated editor MJ Day just shared a sneak peek from the magazine's 2016 Swimsuit Issue — and it's a knockout. The photo features a gorgeous, unidentified woman just wearing body paint, and folks are buzzing that it's none other than UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.

"#instabooty if #2016 keeps going like this then I'm going to be one happy happy girl!" Day captioned via Instagram on Tuesday, January 5. "#bootypaint #siswimsuit."

In the cheeky snapshot, the naked female shows off her backside, toned legs and athletic build. She rocks a painted-on one-piece bathing suit and keeps her tousled dirty-blonde locks down.

The mystery stunner, who will be revealed next month, could easily be Rousey, 28. After all, Rousey has the same exact circle wrist tattoo that the woman also has. (Last year, Derek Jeter's fiancée, model Hannah Davis, made the cover.)

Rousey has been keeping busy since her brutal loss against Holly Holm back in November. Up next, she will be hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time on January 23.
