EA Sports UFC: 200-Plus Fighter Likenesses Captured as Work on MMA Game Begins
EA capture over 200 fighters likenesses to possibly use in the game. Every fighter that was captured may not be used in the final product, but it's clear EA is building plenty of ammunition for their new MMA game.

On a scale of 1-10, (with 10 being screaming like Renan Barao) how excited are you about the next UFC game?
There is no announced release date at this time, but the groundwork has certainly been laid.
Gaining the UFC license from THQ (IGN) was a major win for EA Sports. MMA (the UFC specifically) is one of the fastest growing sports and sports leagues in the world.
EA just announced last week that the developer team that works on the Fight Night series would be handling the UFC title. Fans of Fight Night, like myself, may love that news, while folks that didn't care for Fight Night Champion may be a bit skeptical.
I'm hopeful that the game plays similar to EA MMA. Though it didn't have the major UFC license, it had solid play mechanics. The ground game was solid and the animation was much smoother than UFC Undisputed in my opinion.

That said, there were a few things from UFC Undisputed that I hope EA doesn't omit. The Create-A-PPV mode was a great edition and it would be a step backwards for the UFC brand if it isn't included.
A wide range of fighters to chose from is also very important, and judging by the 200-plus fighters who had their likenesses captured, that shouldn't be a problem.
