Johny Hendricks just can’t catch a break. Two days after losing a heartbreaking UFC welterweight title fight to Georges St-Pierre, EA Sports officials announced “Rush” also downed “Bigg Rigg” in the second round of the ongoing “EA Sports UFC” cover vote.
St-Pierre moves into the final four candidates selected by fan vote to join UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones on the cover of the upcoming UFC video game, which is currently slated for a spring 2014 release.
