What’s Up with The EA Curse?
Well, Back in 2015, the UFC 2 game was announced Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor adorning the front cover.
Rousey, undefeated at the time, lost in November that year, not that long after the announcement, with Holly Holm ending her reign as bantamweight champion.
McGregor won his next fight against Jose Aldo in December that year but by the time the game came out in mid-March 2016, the Irishman had lost just 10 days before to Nate Diaz.
The Notorious was back on the front cover of UFC 3, with the announcement in November 2017 showing him with his two title belts. By the time the game came out he’d vacated one of the belts, he would vacate the next one just two months after the release and lost his next fight to Khabib Nurmagomedov. – Sportbible
