Jon Jones will be coming back from an extended layoff to take on his old foe and title contender, Alexander Gustafsson. The two previously fought to a unanimous decision win for Jones back on September 21, 2013. Many people contend that Gus won the fight and that he was robbed. The two will fight once again for the UFC light heavyweight championship.

Cris Cyborg and Amanda Nunes will be fighting in a women’s superfight. Cyborg is the 145 champion and Nunes is the 135 champion. Nunes will look to become the first-ever female champ/champ in the UFC.

Watch the trailer for the upcoming EA UFC 3 video game

EA UFC 3

The UFC 3 video game is set to be released on 1/20/2018

If you’re a fan of Mixed Martial Arts as well as video gaming, you’ve probably played both versions of the EA UFC video game. I enjoyed aspects of both games. I liked the control of the first version but the second version had better graphics and a much deeper roster. Well, the wait will soon be over for the third iteration of the series. EA has launched their new trailer for EA UFC 3, and it looks pretty sweet.

Conor McGregor will grace the cover of the game, for the second time. Conor was on the cover (along with Ronda Rousey) of UFC 2. On the cover of the first game? Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson. It looks like they’ve added to the depth of the game, hopefully, they go even deeper with the roster.

One new feature is the GOAT, the super in-depth career mode for the game. Here’s what EA had to say about it.

BE THE G.O.A.T.
