Earlier this month, official and behind-the-scenes paparazzi photos taken during the Sports Illustrated photoshoot showed the Californian again posing in nothing but body paint - although on this occasion, it was black and white, rather than the colored creation she models in the latest images.
The latest series of snaps also appear show Ronda taking some direction from the Sports Illustrated team, with several images showing her lifting up her arms in the air as she looked back at the team behind her, seemingly taking some advice on her poses.
Travis' estranged wife Jenna Renee Webb had also seen the ring and took to Instagram to share a photo of Ronda wearing the unique ring, writing: 'Is Ronda Rousey wearing a promise ring?.
As in ''I promise not to hit you like my current wife'' ring? Ronda's distinctive ankle tattoos were also on full display throughout the shoot, appearing just above the small waves lapping around her feet; the mixed martial arts star has inkings on both ankles, and on both of her wrists - a telling feature which actually gave away the fact that she would be appearing in this year's Swimsuit Edition.
