UFC champ Ronda Rousey and tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki pose for Walter Iooss in Sports Illustrated’s 2015 Swimsuit Issue

Over the years, Walter Iooss‘ many contributions to Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue have ranged from cover portraits of Christie Brinkley, Kate Upton, Petra Nemcova, and Brooklyn Decker, to “Body Paint” features and portraits of “Swimsuit Issue Legends.”

For this year’s issue, which just hit newsstands, Walter photographed a pair of top athletes: Ronda Rousey, an American mixed martial artist who is the current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, and tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, winner of more than 20 WTA tour titles. Below, a peek at the photos, plus stills from the behind-the-scenes video of the shoots, which took place on Captiva Island.
