Conor McGregor will become the sixth MMA fighter to appear in ESPN The Magazine’s annual Body Issue, coming out this July.

McGregor’s bare-all appearance in the magazine was announced on Monday, while the full list of athletes will be announced on June 20. It hits news stands on July 8.

The UFC Featherweight Champion follows in the steps of former Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey, Light Heavyweight Champ Jon Jones, current Women’s Bantamweight Champ Miesha Tate, and formerly married competitors Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos and Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino.

Penick’s Analysis: This isn’t the least bit surprising, as it’s yet another outlet for him as the star he’s become. He’ll be one of the biggest names in this year’s issue, which is also probably why they announced him first.
