THQ and Zuffa have announced that reigning UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has been named the cover athlete for UFC Undisputed 3. The Brazilian-sensation Silva, who most recently defeated top contender Yushin Okami at UFC Rio in August to retain his middleweight championship, currently holds both the longest winning streak and longest title defense streak in UFC history.
In a franchise-first opportunity, fans were invited to vote online for one of five current UFC champions – Silva, UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones or UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez – to be this year’s cover athlete. More than 110,000 votes were cast by fans from around the world, with Silva garnering the largest percentage among his fellow competitors.
I voted for Jon Jones but I can’t hate on Silva, he’s a solid pick too. He damn sure looks like it in this “Champ Trailer”.
