"We are looking obviously at every fighter that we can, that we feel is applicable from a quality level and then analyzing their image rights, and if they're available and we want them -- then we'll get them. If they're not then we'll move on to the next fighter."

When asked about fighters such as UFC star Lyoto Machida, Moore added: "Machida? A great fighter. There's plenty of great fighters that have their image rights, and we'll start announcing fighters pretty soon."

I hope the UFC lets their fights in EA's game.

As they have their own franchise video game now I will find that highly unlikely

The only exceptions will be those with their own image rights, which will be a handful at best

...and then you can look for Dana to get SUPER pissed if they do allow EA to use their name.

I'd be surprised if Machida's in the EA game since he's in the official THQ one.

true but as the article stated.. Machida is his own person not dumb enough to sign away his image rights... why not be in both..

EA does everything better! I am not too worried about who will be in the game and because of EA's track record I have high expectations.

Mousasi is in the game and thats all need to buy it lol

I thought guys like St Pierre, Machida, Penn, sherk, Florian, Griffin, Jackson, Liddell, Lesnar, didnt have to sign over their likeness rights exclusively to the UFC cause they have so many other things going on to earn money, I remember reading somewhere that the bigger names didnt have to do that ???

EA doesn't do everything better. EA buys up company's that make a great games then run that game and its company in to the ground most of the times. I could make a huge list of the of great company's that EA bought up and ended up ruining the company and the games they made.

The FN4 demo gives me doubts...

dana wont let one of his champions to be in another video game

I wouldn't be suprised if EA actually pulled this off.
It wouldn't be easy,but EA is becoming an empire in the world of gaming,and it's no suprise when someone tells you their attempting to topple the market.


EA is to video game developing (in some respects) what the UFC is to MMA.

Like UFC and Pride. They have alot in common

Can't wait to see how this game turns out. I'm a big fan of EA sports games like Madden, Live, NCAA games. I hope they do a good job and make this MMA game fun and realistic. I wonder what they will rate Fedor in the game?

Pride was ran in to the ground by Pride not the UFC. It was dead long before the UFC bought it.
