Throughout September a vote was held for which fighter would adorn the cover of UFC Undisputed 3. Five current title holders were candidates – Frankie Edgar, Georges St-Pierre, Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, and Cain Velasquez. Today at the UFC Fan Expo president Dana White announced that Silva won the vote.
Anderson Silva is the current middleweight champion with a career record of 31-4 and has not lost since joining the UFC in 2006 (a streak of 14 fights). He is also a veteran of Pride – which makes its debut as a mode in the game this year. The Brazilian’s next title defense is not yet scheduled but won’t come until early 2012 – possibly facing the winner of the recent Chael Sonnen vs Brian Stann bout, in which Chael Sonnen won. UFC Undisputed 3 is slated to release in January.
