Round 1 of EA Sports cover voting over: Tate beats Rousey


With Anderson Silva losing to Chris Weidman in July, the list of fighters that might grace the cover of EA Sports' first UFC game shrank to two - UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre or UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

On Monday it was announced Jones made the cut. A second figure has to be chosen for the cover. Metro PCS is sponsoring a weekly single elim tournament to whittle the 16 down to 1 between now and Dec 1.

The first round is over, and the winners are:
Miesha Tate beat Ronda Rousey
Michael Bisping beat Urijah Faber
Anthony Pettis beat Demetrious Johnson
Georges St-Pierre beat Chris Weidman
Johny Hendricks beat Dominick Cruz
Jose Aldo beat Benson Henderson
Alexander Gustafsson beat Daniel Cormier
Chael Sonnen beat Junior dos Santos

Round 2 is now underway.

Georges St-Pierre vs.
Johny Hendricks

Anthony Pettis vs.
Jose Aldo

Chael Sonnen vs.
Michael Bisping

Alexander Gustafsson vs.
Miesha Tate


You can vote early and often, and can double your vote on Thursdays with Twitter specific hashtags.

The official retail cover with both fighters on it will be unveiled December 28 at UFC 168. “EA Sports UFC” will launch on Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 in spring 2014.

Who do you think wins the second round?  And who do you predict lands on the cover?

I think she'd be Cody Mckenzie at minimum.

If Rousey was male she'd be treated the same as every other one-dimensional judoka.

But she runs down to 135 to avoid her. Sounds legit.

It doesn't mean anything. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the online masses are having fun and Tate ended up winning based on being the least deserving cover-candidate out there. Think Peyton Hills and Madden 2012 for reference.
