McGregor and Aldo to square off over UFC 2 cover


Emma Clark

Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo will meet in a UFC bout on December 12th and the winner will be made the cover star for EA's UFC 2.

Sure, there may be a lot of money and a title on the line, but the real reason that Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo are meeting on December 12th is to settle who will be the cover star of UFC 2.

EA released a trailer to reveal that the two are in contention for the coveted cover star slot. But there’s only room for one of them.

The winner will join Ronda Rousey on the cover. EA may have mistimed that announcement as she was beaten by Holly Holm just days later leading some to wonder if the infamous Madden cover star curse was expanding its reach.

That curse won’t be on either McGregor’s or Aldo’s mind when they meet on December 12th.

UFC 2 will be released in spring 2016. Take a look at the trailer to see how it’s shaping up and how the potential cover stars look.
