EASports MMA: Nick Diaz And Bobby Lashley Announced As Playable Characters

With the Strikeforce: Miami event fast approaching, EA Sports have announced a string of fighters competing at the event who will also be playable characters in their forthcoming video game.

The new additions are Nick Diaz, Bobby Lashley, Marius Zaromskis, Joe Riggs and Melvin Manhoef. They join a host of other fighters from the Strikeforce promotion who will also feature in the game.

EA Sports MMA will be available to buy for XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 later in the year, though an official release date has yet to be confirmed.
