Fans of the UFC undisputed series will be interested to know that there’s some big name stars included in the pre-order pack for the third edition of the series which hits stores in January of 2012.
New recruits from Strikeforce in Nick Diaz and Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller, plus fast rising light-heavyweight star Phil Davis and war hero turned middleweight contender Brian Stann are all included in the ‘Rising Stars Pack’ which will be available to those who pre-order the game according to Middleeasy.com.
If true that’s unquestionably the most impressive pre-order line-up in the series history to date. At the same time it’s a little surprising given that all four fighters are set to play an intergral part in their respective divisions in the coming months.
For instance Diaz is set to fight GSP for the welterweight title in October so he could in fact be the champion by the time the game hits stores in 2012, while Stann is set to fight in what’s believed to be a middleweight No.1 contender’s bout against Chael Sonnen in the same month.
Meanwhile, the UFC and THQ are offering fans the chance to choose who will be the cover star for UFC Undisputed 3.
The available options are based on the five current champions: Frankie Edgar, Georges St.Pierre, Anderson Silva, Jon Jones and Cain Velasquez. You can cast your vote by visiting: http://www.ufc.com/ufcundisputed3
