“The Karate Hottie” is about to get flashbacks to her modeling days.

UFC strawweight contender Michelle Waterson will follow in the footsteps of Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Conor McGregor, and Jon Jones when she represents the sport of MMA in the latest edition of ESPN’s Body Issue.

Waterson’s involvement was announced by ESPN on Sunday. She will be one of 23 athletes tastefully baring it all in the magazine’s annual ode to some of sports’ most famous forms. The list also includes Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, Boston Celtics scoring machine Isaiah Thomas, and tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki.

This won’t be the 31-year-old Waterson’s first time getting gussied up for the cameras, as she worked as a professional model before embarking on a successful career in MMA. Waterson is currently No. 6 in the UFC’s official rankings.

The 2017 edition of the Body Issue will go on sale July 7.
