It's been a long drawn out process but the competition to be the cover star in EA's debut UFC game is down the final two. So who is it going to be?
The final vote is down to Welterweight champion George St. Pierre or the man famous for giving Jon Jones a run for his money, Alexander Gustafsson.
Jon Jones, the current pound for pound king on the UFC roster has already been confirmed for the cover, the vote will decide who will stand alongside him.
The timing is bad for GSP. Having just been gifted a decision victory over Johny Hendricks in a fight most people thought he clearly lost, folks aren't too keen on GSP — particularly since he hinted heavily at some sort of hiatus (possibly retirement) from the sport. My money is on a Gustafsson victory. For one, many people believe he beat Jon Jones — a fighter once believe to be completely unbeatable. That fight cemented his reputation as one of the most exciting fighters, not just in the light heavyweight division, but the entire UFC company. Secondly, it makes sense for Jon Jones to share the cover with the fighter that will no doubt become the Joe Frazier to his Muhammad Ali. COnsidering how controversial (and epic) their fight was, a rematch in 2014 is unavoidable. It would make good business sense for the UFC to have both of these fighters on the cover of the video game they're trying to promote.
But it's up to the fans of course. You can vote on the cover here.
