I agree. Watched that fight 3 times and gusto is the real champ. He'll have his shot again though. I think hell ko jbj this time unless he doesn't clean up those elbows and head kicks.
I'm with the author, I though Ronda Rousey would be on the cover. Jones is a great choice though.
Maybe she can still make it with the fans voting, but I doubt it.
Meh, I'd vote for Weidman over Rousey. Dude doesnt get the respect he deserves. If the guy who knocked out Anderson Silva and Uriah Hall isnt in the running for a game cover, then theres a problem. Jones is a great choice, but a safe choice.
I vote for Velasquez. or Gina Carano (Ronda is beautiful but Gina is in another league, then again Gina is not officially in the UFC yet) http://www.mmafighting.com/...
Jones is a safe choice, really? He's the the youngest champion in lightweight ufc history, sucessfully defending his title everytime out, and he would BURY Weidman. Come talk to me if and when Weidman wins the rematch without Silva making a mistake that just hands him the win. Rousey would be a TERRIBLE choice for the cover.
^^Jones is the safe choice precisely for the reasons you mentioned. EA UFC should be promoting underdogs/new talent like Weidman and Cat Zingano, not people that already have mass appeal. Everyone already knows that Jones will be in the game. Other lesser known fighters need the exposure more than Jones does.
You should be on the cover of a magazine. Nice pic. :-)
I hate rousey, after seeing her on ultimate fighter her personality suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks
Obviously you haven't seen rousey's popularity plummet from her time on TUF.
Yeah, we're seeing the TRUE Ronda on that show. She comes off so nice in interviews, but in real life shes a bitch. You can tell that she feels she needs to overcompensate because she doesnt have a penis. Did u c the episode where Tate wanted to shake her hand and Ronda and her sis stuck up middle fingers? I hope Tate knocks her out. Ronda needs to be humbled.
this^^^ i think she is a major bitch. i dont think tate is gonna win though, as much as i hate rousey, she is beastly. (i love tate too so sexy, seems genuinely nice and i would love to see her win but im not getting my hopes up )
Hopefully Cat Zingano gets an immediate fight for the winner when she heals up(probably Ronda even tho i hate to admit it) Cat is a beast and has the best chance are KO'ing the one trick pony armbar scrambler that rousey is.
Cat's beast for sure!
I honestly see why they chose bones i mean the dude is at the top of his game right now and is probably the most respected fighter in the sport. not to mention he's coming off a war with gustaffon or whatever his name is. hes a very popular guy
i was at ufc 165, easily one of the best fights ever
Me and my wife completely agree, an absolutely epic battle, maybe the best ever.
Should of been Cain Velasquez he's been dominating HW division
I am a fan of Cain, and it's nice that he depends the position against all Brazilian opponents Brazil has really stepped up the last few years!
They should of put all the notable champions, seems like more jones hype, we all now his reach pretty much got him were he is.
