UFC Undisputed 3 Roster: Light Heavyweights

Posted October 12th, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Over the weekend it was announced that Anderson Silva won the vote to be cover athlete of UFC Undisputed 3. Naturally, with a release planned for January, the next thing in line from a promotion standpoint would be to roll out the complete roster which is said to be larger than the previous two iterations topping 150 fighters – though that is more due to the two new divisions rather than further expanding the previous ones that were included.

The roster reveal began today with ESPN releasing the list of light heavyweights. The division, which Jon Jones currently stands atop as the champion, will feature 19 fighters (down from 26 in UFC 2010).
