    I read about this a little while ago, I am looking forward to it - I think the THQ game is too much like wrestling and the EA boxing games are excellent

    the real question is - are they going to have UFC fighters or are they going to have to string together fighters from every other single major "org" around? As I recall, THQ had a specific agreement with the UFC to be the sole creator of UFC brand games with UFC fighters

    if I recall correctly, the UFC has trademarked (somehow) the octagon cage, so they can have a cage, it would just have to square, hexagon, circle, etc..

    Game should be awesome, but I really worry about characters. Unless EA bought the rights to have UFC fighters. (which I highly doubt)

    They said they will have fighters from all over the world, so fighters in dream, WVR,ect. I'm sure they will snatch up Fedor to put him on the cover and in the game before any one else coughufchough. mayhem, gomi, akoi, vitor, sakurai, gracie, ninja, and some retired fighters igor, ect.

    They need better physics and a better carreer mode (no cred points, better training system ect.) have a choice between a ring and a cage, customize the rules usa (unified rules) or pride fc rules (stomps, soccer kicks ect. ) would be sick. and Have online tourney ranked (GP) mode ect.

    If it will be like Fight night (graphics physics game play, etc) but mma it will be sick

    Good customization options, excellent game play and well thought out controls could make this game epic regardless of not having big name characters

    Dawt.

    Fire Pro couldn't license names but they purposely let you modify characters however you see fit.

    Kinda like how Rickson Gracie in the FP games is named Nick Stacy. :rofl:

    Those names would help market the game more. IMO i would rather have really good gameplay
