EASports have been confirming more playable characters for their upcoming game EASports MMA this week.
The major announcement was that former UFC and PRIDE star Dan Henderson will feature in the game. Henderson of course recently signed with Strikeforce and is expected to face Jake Shields for the middleweight title on CBS in April.
The news does leave some doubt as to whether Henderson will still appear in THQ’s UFC Undisputed 2010 title. Hendo was a playable character in the 2009 edition which has sold 3.5 million copies to date.
Another UFC fighter announced for EASports game is Frank Trigg. While this may seem controversial given the recent war of words between EA and UFC president Dana White, it’s worth bearing in mind that Trigg likely signed on to appear in the game before he was invited back into the UFC.
As with Henderson, it’s unclear if Trigg’s inclusion in EA MMA excludes him from appearing in UFC Undisputed 2010 as well.
The final fighter announced for the game this week was Tyron Woodley, the promising welterweight contender who has been featured in the Strikeforce Challengers series and is currently 5-0 in mixed martial arts competition.
EASports MMA is expected to be released later in the year on XBOX 360 and Playstation 3. Visit mma.easports.com for more information.
