‘EA Sports UFC’ Chooses Jon Jones & Alex Gustafsson For Cover



It was arguably the best fight of 2013; Jon ‘Bones’ Jones vs Alexander Gustafsson. Jones had never been tested like he was in that fight and it drew immediate demands for a rematch from MMA fans worldwide.

We now know that both fighters will compete against other fighters before a possible rematch occurs in the summer but until then you can see both fighters on the new ‘EA Sports UFC’ video game that comes out this spring.

Both fighters seemed excited to be cover athletes and new that it’d bring a lot of buzz to a potential rematch later this year. The two fighters aren’t enemies and were very happy to share the cover. You can see the photo below of them in the hospital together after their last bout if you want further proof of that. The UFC has really propelled MMA into the mainstream and it looks as though EA Sports is going to have a hit (no pun intended) on it’s hands with this game.
