With the release of EA's new UFC video game only months away, THQ has sued both companies for suspected under handed dealings in negotiations.

To me, this looks like a 'nothing to lose' case for THQ, so they may as well go for it.

What have they done other than get some streams taken down and schooling Ken Shamrock?

Froze Couture in his place and forced his hand back into the UFC. I'm sure a few other fighters were frozen out/forced to the sidelines as well

Glory, IFL, WFC, Showtime, HDNet, Hobby Star, Dream Stage Entertainment, Pro Elite, Ubisoft, The State of Oklahoma, WWE, and currently the State of New York and also currently Ken Pavia/Bellator.

Lawsuits rarely finish with a winner/losser however they are always settled in some manner or another, above are some of their most notable victories excluding small websites Couture and Shamrock. The Zuffa LLC law team also handles all the contracts with sponsor, fighters, and production/distribution/marketing deals. They did a top notch job with Spike and Fox.

THQ = bums.

They haven't made a decent game in years, and I'm not referring to Undisputed.

THQ is (Was) a lot like EA, they don't really make games they own companies that do and they get the publishing rights.

Most of THQ's subsidiaries sucked but they had a few companies that made some great games like Relic who made Company of Heroes and the Warhammer series and Volition who made Saints Row, and Red Faction.

It was Yukes that made the the Undisputed games, they also make all the Wrestling games.

In other words, THQ deserves credit for nothing and they're bums?
