    I don't see how they don't already own their likeness? Could they not get around it by putting like Lesnar from Lesnar Vs Corture UFC 91, or something gay like that? I mean don't they technically own that likeness since they can sell the dvd's and ppv's. I can understand why you might want to say no to lifetime ownership of a video game you.

    No I did not. So if the UFC wish to use his character in 10 years time as a previous fighter then what is the problem? Is it not a testiment to be engraved in time played by millions?

    He obviously has his reasons, and it's his choice.

    This is how the Fertittas operate with Vegas and the hotel industry aswell. They make management positions even sign contracts so you can't transfer or quit without getting shitkicked. It's bullshit and other fighters need to back eachother up to stop that madness.

    I sorta agree with the UFCs decisions, but even this is nutty.

    i am shocked the UFC would want him on the game. Fitch is at that point where most UFC fighters get cut. Cant beat the title holder, but can beat everyone else.
