UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has secured another one of his goals, landing the cover for “EA Sports UFC.”
The video game is set to be released next year on several gaming systems.
“It’s another one of those surreal moments,” Jones said in a statement. “One of those moments you just have to step back and pinch yourself and realize I’m not dreaming.”
Jones will defend his title in 2014 against Glover Teixeira.
Additionally, a second cover athlete will be selected based on fan voting, which can be done at the official UFC website. Those up for the spot include Georges St-Pierre, Chris Weidman, Jose Aldo, Dominick Cruz, Demetrious Johnson, Ronda Rousey, Michael Bisping, Daniel Cormier, Junior dos Santos, Urijah Faber, Alexander Gustafsson, Benson Henderson, Johny Hendricks, Chael Sonnen and Miesha Tate.
