Sixteen fighters. One cover. Who joins Jones? ‘Bones’; the youngest champion in UFC history, will be one of two fighters to appear on the EA SPORTS UFC cover, but it down to us to pick who joins him.
It’s a huge honor to be selected as one of the fighters to appear on the cover of EA SPORTS UFC. I am a big fan of EA SPORTS and appearing on a cover is one of those things you dream about as a kid. I’ll definitely be following the Cover Vote to see which fighter the fans choose to join me as the face of the game.
The voting presented by MetroPCS begins today and will run until December 1, 11:59:59 PM EST (December 2, 04:59:59 AM GMT). The vote will consist of a weekly round-by-round, 16-fighter, head-to-head elimination tournament. Fans worldwide are encouraged to vote as often as possible as well view the full lineup of potential cover stars at UFC.com/covervote to ensure their favorite fighter advances through the rounds.
Fans can double their voting power by using these fighter specific hashtags on “Twitter Vote Thursdays.” Each fighter specific hashtag used on Twitter on Thursdays will be counted as two official votes. Fans can join the conversation about the cover vote every day by using #EASPORTSUFC on Twitter and Instagram.
EA SPORTS UFC is due for release spring 2014 and is being developed by EA Canada in Vancouver and has yet to be given a PEGI rating.
