Forrest Griffin has received the special honor to appear on the cover of the highly anticipated upcoming video game UFC 2009 UNDISPUTED. Griffin became the original ‘Ultimate Fighter’ in 2005 after winning a six-figure contract with the UFC on the first season of the hit SPIKE TV reality series.
The 2008 Canadian ‘Athlete of the Year’, Georges St. Pierre, will appear on a special edition of UFC 2009 UNDISPUTED only available in Canada. Retail cost for the game will be the XBOX/PS3 standard of $59.99 in the U.S. The game is scheduled to ship on May 19th which usually means they will hit shelves a day later in most cases.
UFC President, Dana White, had this to say about Griffin and St. Pierre being chosen for the cover, “Forrest Griffin and Georges St-Pierre helped elevate UFC to the place we are today. 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.”
We get to see Forrest Griffin’s reaction to seeing himself on the UFC 2009 UNDISPUTED box cover for the first time. Forrest also shares his thoughts on the game as well as his opinion on Jardine, Rampage, and what’s next for him inside the Octagon.
