UFC’s Women Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey is the cover athlete of the upcoming EA Sports UFC 2.
Rousey is known as the Baddest Woman on the Planet, and with good reasons. She was the first female fighter to ever sign with the UFC, and holds the fastest match in UFC championship history, which was against Zingano and ended in just 14 seconds. Here’s what she has to say about being on the cover:
“EA Sports are almost like a culturalbarometer really to see what’s going on in sports at the moment. The games I played growing up, I remember them as part of my childhood and part of like I how I saw the world at the time. As a gamer myself, and growing up a little overly obsessed with video games, it’s pretty surreal to be on the cover of the game myself, to have a woman on the cover of a UFC game shows a lot of progress. I am really happy to be involved with that.”
EA Sports revealed the complete list of features that will be in the game, and some of them look really exciting. Take a look at some of the modes below:
