Who’s your favorite fighter?
EA Sports announced today that UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones, along with another fighter chosen by the fans, will grace the cover of their first UFC game.
The EA Sports UFC cover vote will begin soon, with a weekly head-to-head tournament to decide which fighter joins Jones on the cover. The 16 fighters available to vote for are Middleweight champion Chris Weidman, Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, Featherweight champion Jose Aldo, Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, women’s Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, Michael Bisping, Daniel Cormier, Junior dos Santos, Urijah Faber, Alexander Gustafsson, Benson Henderson, Johny Hendricks, Chael Sonnen, and Miesha Tate.
I think I have to go with GSP, not just because he’s Canadian, but because he’s the longest-serving champ on the list. I think that deserves a spot on the cover. Who are you voting for?
