New EA SPORTS MMA Screens: Strikeforce Nashville

This past weekend, a slew of mixed-martial-arts bouts took place at the "Strikeforce Nashville" event at the Bridgestone Arena. To celebrate the beatings and to promote its upcoming fighting game EA SPORTS MMA, Electronic Arts has released eight new screenshots of the game highlighting the no-holds-barred contests that took place.


The new screens feature all three of the main bouts from last Saturday's official fight card. The Light Heavyweight Championship bout between Gerard Mousasi and Muhammed Lawal (King Mo), saw Lawal emerge as the victor, and Gilbert Melendez triumphed over Shinya Aoki in the Lightweight Championship bout. In the title fight between Jake Shields and Dan Henderson, Shields was able to successfully defend the Strikeforce Middleweight Championship via a unanimous decision.

Sadly, there are no screenshots of the Miller/Gracie Camp battle royale that followed the title bout, but you'll be able to recreate it yourself when EA SPORTS MMA comes out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sometime during the last three months of 2010.
