Jon Jones Named Cover Athlete For EA Sports' UFC Game
UFC today announced that Jon Jones will be one of two cover athletes for the MMA promotion's first video game under its EA Sports licensing deal. The other cover athlete will be "selected by the fans" via an online vote that begins today and runs through Dec. 1. The "official retail cover featuring both fighters will be revealed during UFC 168" on Dec. 28. The vote, sponsored by Metro PCS, "consists of a weekly, round-by-round, head-to-head elimination tournament" (FOXSPORTS.com, 11/4).
