Super bowl quarterback Colin Kaepernick and NBA point guard John Wall took it all off on the men’s side. Pro golfer Carli Booth and UFC fighter Meisha Tate posed nude on the women’s side.

Tate had this to say about getting naked for the magazine, “One of the biggest common misperceptions about women’s mixed martial arts is  that we’re not feminine. So for me it’s important to show that women in this  sport are comfortable about their bodies, that we’re pretty and carry ourselves  as women, and we can also turn it up a notch in the cage.”

A very pregnant Kerri Walsh Jennings posed naked and then again with newborn in arms.

Professional snowboarder Elena Hight looked really cold boarding down a snow covered mountain. Other athletes in the spread included 77 year-old legendary golfer Gary Player and New York Mets pitching ace Matt Harvey. ESPN has capitalized on nudity the same way women’s magazines like Allure, who have their annual issue devoted to the nude form.
