Ronda Rousey Predicted Her Loss to Holly Holm on “The Tonight Show” Back in October (Video)
Ronda Rousey EA Cover Announced the Day Before She Loses Belt (Video)
If you’re the type of person that believes the independent decisions made by a marketing team for a video game company can affect an MMA match halfway around the world, you’ll delight in knowing that the curse of the EA cover lives on. No longer reserved exclusively for Madden athletes, the day before Ronda Rousey was KO’d by Holly Holm, it was announced that she’ll be on the cover of EA Sports’ UFC 2.
Getting into the specifics of the “curse” lends it more credibility than it deserves, so we’ll just say that over the past couple decades, several Madden cover athletes were met with injury and misfortune after earning the honor.
Normally, it doesn’t happen so soon after the cover is announced, but that’s not going to stop anyone from turning the Madden curse into the EA curse. Also, the EA cover didn’t kick Ronda Rousey in the head. Holly Holm did.
