For UFC 2 EA Sports tweeted yesterday, after Conor McGregors 13 second knockout of Jose Aldo, a new picture of the UFC 2 EA Sports Cover Art now featuring “The Notorious” himself, Conor McGregor. Alongside Conor McGregor is the former UFC’s Female Bantamweight Champion, Ronda Rousey. Rousey was the It girl for the UFC and probably one of the most famous sports stars on the plant this year. She faced Holly Holm, her first test against an elite level striker, last month and was completely dominated. Unlike Rousey, McGregor was able to take on his biggest challenger, Jose Aldo, to unify the UFC ‘s featherweight belts.

McGregor is arguably the greatest hype artist in the game and you either love him or you hate him, but people will certainly notice him. Especially now he is the cover star of UFC 2. He has had a meteoric rise to success and has blown away everyone so far. I’m looking forward to playing as his character when UFC 2 comes out! Check out the video tweet below for the cover show down between Aldo & McGregor

EA Sports have also been busy promoting UFC 2 and Conor McGregor by giving away a customised PS4 with McGregor artwork. It’s pretty sweet, although we here at TGD also think the face looks like a slim Wayne Rooney….a bit disconcerting to say the least.
