The UFC and EA Sports recently announced UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones as the first cover athlete for the new EA Sports UFC video game. Alongside that announcement, it was revealed that a second cover athlete would be chosen via a fan vote.

The Cover Vote is a way for fans to get in on the action and determine the athlete that will grace the EA Sports UFC game cover opposite Jones.

The first round of the cover voting is in the books with Miesha Tate upsetting UFC women’s champion Ronda Rousey, and moving on to face Alexander Gustafsson in the second round.

AAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Love it.

Tate won't be on the cover, but I'm glad she bested Rousey at something.

More importantly will we finally be able to play the grudge fight the fans have debated for years; Rousey vs Caraway?

Ok, so if this really is the promo cover from EA, is it just some way of EA saying "The opinion of the public overshadows corporate interests," to promote the voting aspect? Or is Jones really going to be completely owned by the 2nd cover fighter??

I hope to God it's the latter haha can't stand Jones & his fake persona that is ever-increasingly getting blown to sh*t, especially after TUF.

[EDIT]: I can't stand Jones as a human being. As a fighter & athletic representation of the evolution of the sport, dude's top-notch.

Great for Miesha!

I don't like the idea of 2 fighters on the cover... EA MMA had Randy and Fedor, But that ment something... This should have 1 fighter, or many... But the thought Jones and Bisping/Tate/Sonnen... just weird, Maybe if Anderson gets it with Jones they can sell the superfight angle?
