UFC champ Conor McGregor unveiled for ‘EA UFC 3’ video-game cover
For the second straight year, Conor McGregor will serve as the cover fighter for the official UFC video game, “EA UFC 3.”
However, this time, he gets the space all to himself.
Officials today revealed UFC lightweight champ McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) will grace the cover of “EA UFC 3,” which is set for a global release Feb. 2 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“Two belts, two covers – EA SPORTS got it right again,” McGregor stated. “It’s an honor to be on the cover, and I can’t wait to play the game.”
“The Notorious” was also on the cover of the previous version of the game, though he shared it with former UFC women’s bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey. With Rousey essentially out of the sport, though, there’s more landscape for the Irishman.
“EA UFC 3” marks the third video-game collaboration between the UFC and EA Sports. THQ released previous titles prior to the EA Sports deal.
UFC 3. Become the GOAT inside and outside the Octagon.
