EA has announced ‘Fight for the Cover’, stating that the winner of UFC 194 between Ireland’s own Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo on December 12th will join Ronda Rousey on the cover for EA’s UFC 2 next year.
Ronda Rousey is the first female athlete to headline an EA Sports box art (discounting FIFA 15), and while we initially expected her to be the only one on show, it’s now obvious that she will be joined by one of these two fighters.
The fight will take place at 10PM/7PM ETPT in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 12th, and the EA cover spot will probably be the last thing on the fighters’ minds. Following the EA Sports curse of Madden and more recently with Ronda Rousey, days after her cover star announcement, will the victor of this fight suffer the same fate in their following fight next year? Time will tell.
With McGregor holding a record of 18 wins and 2 losses, while Aldo stands with 25 wins and 1 loss behind him. Who’s your money on?
