Finally, the most exciting feature of this game for me is that this game may serve as the way to determine the definitive top 10 rankings in the UFC. Joe Silva is working with the developers to determine the fighter attributes. Therefore, if the game says Chuck Liddell is the number 2 contender to Forrest Griffin at Light Heavyweight, that means that is what Silva thinks. The attributes of the fighters will be determined based on Silva's assessment of their talent. In the fluid world of the UFC, where a fighter is only as good as his last fight, THQ is trying to get a system in place by launch that would enable updated fighter rankings and statistics throughout the year.

Therefore, if Wanderlei Silva were to beat Chuck Liddell and Joe Silva then thought Wanderlei is the new number one contender and should get the next title shot, an update over XBOX Live or the PlayStation Network could come out on Monday dropping Liddell down and moving Wanderlei up. Fans would not have to guess at who should get the next title shot, just turn on their consoles and see the new rankings.



There is an interesting report up over at Figure Four Online for premium members only on the new UFC game coming out next year.

This would make the UFC game far more important than any sports game out there that I know of. The game would actually become a crucial part of being a UFC fan, which would be pretty revolutionary in the sports gaming world.

I like the idea of being able to see joes rankings, but the idea of basing attributes on ranking is pretty dumb.

I just beat the game with Lyoto Machida and I still didn't get a title shot. Then I lost five times with Chuck Lidell and I got three title shots.
