Former UFC champion Ronda Rousey will become the first athlete to be a main featured model for the cover of Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit issue.

Sports Illustrated made the official announcement Saturday night and released a preview of the cover, featuring Rousey in a body-paint swimsuit.

Other athletes, including Maria Sharapova and Anna Kournikova, have appeared on the cover in previous years, though as a smaller image in the corner.

However, Rousey won't be alone: Ashley Graham and Hailey Clauson will get separate covers, marking the first time in the history of the Swimsuit edition that it will have three separate covers.
