The defeat of Ronda Rousey by Holly Holm at UFC 193 has shocked the sporting world and now many gamers are attributing the knock-out to the infamous "Madden Curse."
Many gamers and sports fans are blaming Rousey's first defeat on the infamous Madden Curse, given that it was announced two days before the fight that she would appear on the cover of EA Sports: UFC 2.
The Madden Curse is an alleged superstition among sports fans that an athlete will have a poor season or suffer an injury after appearing on the cover of Madden NFL. The curse has become such a big deal to fans that bookies have created odds on how likely an injury will occur to the player after appearing on the cover.
Even though the curse has only affected football players, some fear that its spreading to other EA Sports games.
According to Nick Schwartz of ForTheWin, that Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson had some bad luck after appearing on the cover of EA Sports: UFC. Most notable was Gustafsson two defeats while Jones failed a drug test and was suspended.
Despite her loss, EA Sports has announced that Rousey will remain on the cover of EA Sports: UFC 2.
