THQ and Zuffa today announced that for the first time in the franchise’s history, players will be able to select the cover athlete for the game. All you have to do is visit www.ufc.com/ufcundisputed3 between 6:00 a.m. PT on August 26, 2011 and 12:00 p.m. PT on September 30, 2011 and choose from one of five renowned UFC fighters – UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones or UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez – to appear on the front cover of the videogame. I think all these guys are solid choices but I gotta go with my man, GSP, Georges St-Pierre to make it. JJ gets my close second though, the young guys is vicious.
