  • Lets hope Gustafsson or Sonnen wins

  • Timothy Malone

    Pettis may be entertaining but I dont see why he should have gotten voted for over one of P4P best in Aldo. Also dont understand Sonnen over Bisping, though I guess it was before Evans easily beat him.

    • Your_Dad

      What’s your point? Bisping has been easily beaten before. Pettis is a highly entertaining fighter, even moreso than Aldo. It’s a popularity contest and not a who’s had the best career contest.

      • Timothy Malone

        I think fighters should be recognized and rewarded based on how good they are first and foremost, and Aldo is better than Pettis and Bisping is better than Sonnen imo (I think Bisping won their fight)

          I can understand your point, but if they wanted the best guys they wouldn’t have left it up to fan voting.
          Last time they voted for a cover silva won it, but it wasn’t tourney style. Just vote for who you want. Probably why he wasn’t an option.
          Whoever wins is going to get money from it too so that’s one reason for fans to help they’re guy.

    I voted once and then noticed the message following my vote, “You’ve cast your votes, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait on the sidelines. Tell a friend, share on social and follow us for updates. If your fighter’s behind on the scorecard, vote again!”

    A vote again button prompts you to immediately be able to vote again. Should be 1 vote per IP address to keep it fair and not have these American Idol type drone people voting 300,000 times before the votes end. Maybe I should’ve set up a clicker to try and help Hendricks after he was robbed in his title fight but with the ridiculousness of their voting setup, I just have to shake my head.

    • Your_Dad

      Who cares? It’s just a vote for a fighter to share the cover of a video game and not a vote for the next President of the country.

  • TrustNoGovt

    I would have liked to see Meisha Tate on the cover. She’s hot, and carries herself with class and is a great representative of the sport, unlike Dana White and his gf Ronda Redneck Rousey.

    • MeishathewomansChampion

      You mean Lousy Rotunda Rousey?
      Mrs. Potato Head in the flesh even?

  • Johnny pettis

    I’m voting sonnen just cuz he’s there
