I forgot that it was only in NA but anyways, Anderson deserved this. GSP was on the cover for the first game so it would be kind of silly if he was on it again. I thought JBJ had a legitimate chance at this with his increasing star power but I'm sure he'll be on the cover in a matter of time.
I'm pretty sure Forrest Griffin was on '09 and Brock was on '10. I've got both copies.
