The cover of “EA Sports UFC 3” has been released.
On Friday afternoon, EA Sports unveiled the cover of its third installment of the mixed martial arts game which will feature none other than “The Notorious” Conor McGregor, who is unquestionably the biggest star in the sport today.
“Two belts, two covers – EA Sports got it right again,” McGregor said at the unveiling. “It’s an honor to be on the cover, and I can’t wait to play the game.”
It marks McGregor’s second time on the cover.
The lightweight champion previously appeared on the cover of “EA Sports UFC 2” alongside former women’s bantamweight title holder Ronda Rousey.
An official trailer for the game is set to be released later today.
