March 13, 2009 - THQ and Zuffa today announced that Forrest Griffin has been tapped to appear on the worldwide cover of UFC 2009 Undisputed. Griffin is a former light heavyweight champion after winning his UFC contract on Spike TV "The Ultimate Fighter" reality show in 2005.
Canada will see a special cover that will only be available to Canucks. It features Georges St-Pierre, a Quebec native. St-Pierre is currently the welterweight champion and was recently named Canada's Athlete of the Year for 2008.
"Forrest Griffin and Georges St-Pierre helped elevate UFC to the place we are today," said Dana White, president, UFC. "We are confident that these two fighters' many strengths both inside and outside the Octagon will have the same effect on UFC 2009 Undisputed as we prepare for the game's worldwide launch on May 19."
Both versions of UFC 2009 Undisputed will ship on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 19. We'll have the GSP box art exclusively on IGN at a later date.
I don't have a PS3 or a Xbox 360, but a brother might be getting one soon! This game looks all kinds of dope! Those of you that are big gamers, give me some rec's as to which system is better suited for games and whatnot. The only thing I'm going to use it for is gaming, because I have surround sound and all that other theater stuff built in to my home. Also, what are you thoughts in regards to Forrest Griffin getting the cover?
