Alexander Gustafsson wins EA sports cover vote


After weeks of voting from fans, and jockeying from fighters, the UFC cover vote has been decided. 16 fighters have been dwindled down to just 2: Georges St-Pierre and Alexander Gustafsson. Today, at the live cover vote, EA sports announced that Alexander Gustafsson has won the cover vote over Georges St-Pierre.

The cover of the first ever EA sports UFC game will be a face-off between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson. Earlier this year, at UFC 165, Jones and Gustafsson fought in an incredible battle that saw both men hurt, bloodied, but never defeated. In the end, Jones walked away with the razor close decision, but the fans want more. Now the legend and rivalry between both men will grow as they both grace the cover of the UFC game. The game is set to come out sometime in Spring 2014.

This event was just one of the many events the UFC is holding in Sacramento this weekend. First up was Josh Thomson’s fight club Q&A, then the EA sports live cover reveal. At 7 p.m. ET, the live weigh ins will be right here on Fansided.
