UFC boss Dana White says Cain Velasquez didn't like idea of video game fan vote

TORONTO - UFC boss Dana White says Cain Velasquez opted not to be part of the cover vote for the UFC's new video game because, as heavyweight champion, he didn't think he needed to be voted onto the cover.

Velasquez was been left off the list of 16 fan vote fighters vying to join light-heavyweight title-holder Jon (Bones) Jones on the cover of "EA Sports UFC" after failing to come to terms with video game developer Electronic Arts.

"I just think that Cain felt he's the heavyweight champion and he doesn't want to be in a vote to see if he should be on the cover," White told a conference call Tuesday.

"I can't blame him for that," he added.

The UFC's eight other champions did sign the dotted line: Jones, Demetrious Johnson (flyweight), Dominick Cruz (bantamweight), Jose Aldo (featherweight), Anthony Pettis (lightweight), Montreal's Georges St-Pierre (welterweight), Chris Weidman (middleweight) and Ronda Rousey (women's bantamweight).

The other candidates are Michael Bisping, Daniel Cormier, Ben Henderson, Johny Hendricks, Urijah Faber, Alex Gustafsson, Junior Dos Santos, Chael Sonnen and Miesha Tate.

The cover vote will run through Dec. 1, via a weekly head-to-head elimination tournament. Fans can make their picks at www.UFC.com/covervote.

Previous versions of the UFC video game were made by THQ, which featured Forrest Griffin, heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar, Anderson Silva and St-Pierre on its game covers.

The video game, currently under development at EA Canada in Vancouver, is slated for release in the spring for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Weird. In the old days he would have had no choice in the matter.

Also, it sounds like someone forgot what its like to be broke and struggling. Phone Post

Yeah, tats have to be the reason. I can't wait until a program like Photoshop is available to EA. Maybe they can borrow the UFC's Photoshop they used to remove Dan Hardy's tattoo when he fought GSP.

So wait, why did he do this? Is he embarrassed that he might not get as many votes as a lighter champ? Or did he feel disrespected and that he should have got the cover over Bones?

Joshua King - That's the biggest load of bs damage control I ever heard.

This is not real.

DO YOU REALLY THINK THEY'D HAVE AN ODD COMBO OF BONES AND TATE?BISPING?

it's the stupidest thing ever and Douchey to hold a fan vote as a guise for viral marketing.

Bones Vs Gus on the cover is the only logical choice as that fight happened and was a shining jewel of what UFC has to offer.

If it is anyone other than that, say honda or gsp it will be the mma equivalent to a tiger beat teeny bop mag. Phone Post 3.0

Why would Gus be on the cover?

 

It should be Jones and Ronda and thats probably what it will end up being.  The two new UFC stars of the future, one male and one female.

Voted - why not?

Rousey
Bisping
Pettis
GSP
Cruz
Aldo
Cormier
JDS

In theory, it "feels" like it should be either GSP or Ronda.
