After months of teasing, EA Sports MMA (also known as the alternative to that UFC Undisputed game that is not selling too well) announced the official roster for the heavyweights and light heavyweights in their upcoming title on their blog. We already knew a majority of the fighters in the game, but it is nice to finally confirm them. So, as Big John McCarthy would say, let’s get it on!
HW Roster (pictured above): Bobby Lashley, Randy Couture, Fedor Emelianenko, Alistair Overeem, Fabricio Werdum, Hidehiko Yoshida, Andrei Arlovski, “King Mo” Lawal, Jeff Monson, Ken Shamrock, Kevin Randleman, Brett Rogers, Bob Sapp, Josh Barnett, Tim Sylvia, Andreas Kraniotakes.
LHW Roster: Ken Shamrock, Jason “Mayhem” Miller, Bas Rutten, Randy Couture, Renato “Babalu” Sobral, Gegard Mousasi, Frank Shamrock, Vladimir Matyushenko, “King Mo” Lawal, Scott Smith, Roger Gracie, Melvin Manhoef, “Ninja” Rua, Matt Lindland, Kevin Randleman, Dan Henderson, Alistair Overeem.
For those wondering about in-store exclusive characters, Big John McCarthy, Herschel Walker, and “Classic” Frank Shamrock will be bonus downloadable characters in the video game if you pre-order your game with either Walmart, BestBuy, or GameStop stores respectively. More fighters will be announced next week. Any fighters you wanted to see in the game that EA missed?
