Gustafsson to grace EA video game cover alongside Jones

http://sports.nationalpost.com/2013/...eo-game-cover/


Quote:
TORONTO — Alexander (The Mauler) Gustafsson will join UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon (Bones) Jones on the cover of the “EA Sports UFC” video game.

The Swedish 205-pounder beat out Canadian welterweight star Georges St-Pierre in the final round of fan voting.

St-Pierre and Gustafsson were the final two fighters standing from a list of 16 who started in the fan vote to see who would join Jones, ranked the UFC’s top pound-for-pound fighter, on the cover.

EA said more than 11 million votes were cast with UFC champions Anthony Pettis, Ronda Rousey, Jose Aldo, Chris Weidman and Demetrious Johnson also falling by the wayside.

UFC president Dana White said Europe accounted for nearly 40 per cent of the web traffic to the cover vote site during the last week of voting.

Jones defeated No. 1 contender Gustafsson in an epic five-round encounter at UFC 165 in Toronto in September.

Jones (19-1) is slated to meet second-ranked Glover Teixeira at UFC 171 in March while Gustafsson (22-2) faces Jimi (Poster Boy) Manuwa on an earlier card in March.

“EA Sports UFC” will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the spring of 2014.
I'm actually shocked that Gus managed to beat out GSP. That's a fairly big statement from the fans and a nice break for Gus. I'm always happy to see another face enter the limelight, and I think we're guaranteed to see a rematch should Jones and Gus dispatch their next opponents.

I'm happy for Gus. People were saying some voting for Gus is disrespectful because champions should be on the cover, but that's ridiculous in my opinion. There already is a champion on the cover. St. Pierre already has more fame and fortune than he knows what to do with. He doesn't need our charity and should let someone else get this exposure. It also makes a lot of sense considering GSP just left the UFC indefinitely. Active fighters should be on the cover.

Gus winning speaks volumes (I actually voted for him 100 times in the final round) and it is a shock that he beat GSP.

Someone asked how Jones felt about it and he said "Lets not talk about it... Too soon"

Happy with the winner of this tournament.

Great to see Gustafsson make it to the cover, it would've been easy and kinda lazy to just go with the champs as always. Yeah JBJ is on the cover too, but if anything it also brings attention to their epic fight this year.

In my opinion Gus being on the cover is the MMA community trolling JBJ.

Haha I think it is hillarious that they are in the same weight class on the cover while Jones says Gus has to earn his rematch shot =)

I dont understand why they cant just have one person on the cover. Kind of awkward having two.

I don't consider GSP a UFC fighter anymore anyways, he just called it quits even if it is only for a year or two. You wouldn't have Dan Marino on the next madden cover.
