UFC 194: Jose Aldo vs Conor McGregor winner joins Ronda Rousey on cover of EA Sports UFC 2 video game

New, comments

Forget the Featherweight titles, the real prize is a spot on the cover of EA Sports UFC 2!

The winner of the UFC 194 pay-per-view (PPV) main event between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor, which takes place on Dec. 12, 2015 inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada (details), will move on to rub elbows with former UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

"Fight for the Cover is another way we are bringing an authentic and exciting experience to the fans," said Jamie McKinlay, Vice President of Marketing, EA Sports. "From the Octagon at UFC 194 on December 12, to the Octagon in EA Sports UFC 2, this is a huge moment in UFC and EA Sports history, and we're thrilled to be a part of it."

In case of a draw, or some other wacky circumstance like injury, EA will select a replacement athlete at its discretion.

Rousey's stock took a hit last month when Holly Holm captured the women's 135-pound crown (video). No doubt the video game publisher would love to have McGregor join her on the cover of EA Sports UFC 2, as the "Notorious" Irishman has mastered the art of getting attention.

As for Aldo ... he prefers to let his lawyers do the talking.
