Another day, another accomplishment for UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. It has been announced that Jones will be on the cover of the new EA Sports UFC video game titled, “EA Sports UFC”. The game will be coming out in 2014.
To add a wrinkle to the game, EA Sports and the UFC announced that a second fighter will be added to cover of the game through a fan vote. 16 fighters have been announced that will partake in an head to head weekly elimination tournament, with the last fighter standing will grace the cover alongside Jones. The fighters in the game are:
UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, Michael Bisping, Daniel Cormier, Junior dos Santos, Urijah Faber, Alexander Gustafsson, Benson Henderson, Johny Hendricks, Chael Sonnenand Miesha Tate.
You can vote on the fighters starting today at ufc.com/covervote.
Jones was thrilled with the honor of being of the new video game.
“It’s another one of those surreal moments, one of those moments you just have to step back and pinch yourself and realize I’m not dreaming,” Jones said in the official release.
“EA Sports UFC” will replace the most recent game in the UFC division, THQ’s “UFC Undisputed.”
