UFC Undisputed 3 is currently in development for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, with a scheduled release of January 2012.

“Letting fans vote for the UFC Undisputed 3 cover athlete is a unique way for us to connect with our extensive worldwide audience of UFC fans, fighting game enthusiasts and more casual sports followers,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Games, THQ.  “We look forward to seeing if Jon Jones, Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre or Cain Velasquez has what it takes to grace the cover of what will be the most invigorating MMA videogame release to date.”

“We are excited to let fans choose the cover athlete for UFC Undisputed 3,” UFC President Dana White said.  “Frankie, Georges, Anderson, Jon, and Cain are five of the most popular athletes in our sport and each wants to be on the cover.  We love making our fans a part of the process and we’ll leave this one up to them.”
