EA Sports has announced that UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones will be the cover athlete for next year’s “EA Sports UFC” video game.

“It’s another one of those surreal moments, one of those moments you just have to step back and pinch yourself and realize I’m not dreaming,” Jones stated in an official release.

A second athlete will also appear on the cover, and will be determined by a fan vote. The 16 current candidates for the spot are:

UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, Michael Bisping, Daniel Cormier, Junior dos Santos, Urijah Faber, Alexander Gustafsson, Benson Henderson, Johny Hendricks, Chael Sonnen and Miesha Tate.

Voting has already begun at UFC.com/covervote.

EA Sports UFC will be released on May 5, 2014 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
