Kenflo and Stevenson are confirmed for the game. Not big news but there are pictures, and at the IGN site there are video interviews with fighters about their thoughts on the game.

You know what by the time they put this game out all of the fighters will either be retired or fighting some where else. I have been waiting on this game for over a year now and I don't even play games. They keep pushing it back and pushing it back till I just don't even care any more. Maybe my grandkids will enjoy playing it.

The Wii is a great system, but to play this game in 480p would be a slap in the face to the entire design team.

They've also shown a few fighters getting scanned...if I remember correctly, it was Kongo, War Machine, Dean Lister, and I think somone else. Although with War Machine's departure, they'll probably just make his character into a jobber.

480p is just the tip of the iceburg...No digital audio is a complete joke

I know I'm the one who posted this, and I have no doubt that I will play this nonstop as soon as I am able to get my hands on it (Lyoto Machida!!!!) but I'm going to say this now, UFC 2009 = Tapout 2 with more versatility and a better damage engine.

THQ dropped it. But regardless I am happy because they are here to stay and will eventually spit out a decent fight engine. I can only hope to god they adapted something similar or better then the Pride FC submission system.

i dont think its going to be anything like the previous game that was Developed by Dream Factory and Published by Crave Entertainment,
firstly this game is being made by a completely different bunch of game developers who have been intensively studying the various fighting styles and there putting a lot more money into it cause as we all know MMA and the UFC has exploded in popularity since the time when the first 2 games came out in 02, and 03, and so theres much more money availble to them,

the game in its early stages looks great and what there saying about it its going to be completty different it has nothing to do with the first games.

what makes u so sure this game will be crap as, and just slightly improved over tapout 2?
