Alex Gustafsson Beats GSP in Cover Vote for EA Sports UFC

Along with Jon “Bones” Jones, Alex Gustafsson has been cast as the second fighter to appear on the cover of EA Sports UFC. This was a tough battle through many fighters, but Alex has defeated GSP in the final round of user voting. Gustafsson of course just fought Jon Jones in a tough back and forth brawl, so it almost feels like these two were destined to be apart of the cover art.

This is probably the best decision considering GSP just announced he will be stepping away from fighting for a little bit and has vacated his Welterweight title. Regardless, it’s still a shock one of the biggest draws in the UFC lost against the talented Gustafsson who will be fighting Jimi Manuwa in March.
