EA Sports announced today Ronda Rousey will appear on the cover of EA Sports UFC 2. As one of the most recognized MMA fighters, Rousey becomes the global lead cover athlete for the game.
“EA Sports is a cultural barometer to know what’s going on in sports at the moment,” Rousey said. “As a gamer myself, it’s pretty surreal to be on the cover of the game and to have a woman on the cover of a UFC game shows a lot of progress. I’m really happy to be involved with it.”
Gamers can expect an all-new Knockout Physics System, character likeness and animation, five new game modes, a new career mode called UFC Ultimate Team that lets people create female fighters, Grapple Assist (lets players learn and perform perfect takedowns).
This news comes one day before Rousey’s title match at the Octagon against Holm in Melbourne, Australia.
