EA Sports MMA Game Gains Fedor, Others

World Alliance of Mixed Martial Arts heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko is among the first real-life fighters confirmed to be in EA Sports' upcoming MMA video game, the combatant and publisher jointly announced today.

Exactly how this move will affect Fedor's ongoing negotiations to potentially join the UFC remains unclear, though it's unlikely to be considered a plus as league president Dana White has threatened to ban any fighter from the UFC if they sign with EA.

Gegard Mousasi and Babalu Sobral were also confirmed to appear in the upcoming game, which is slated to hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010.

      I'm thinking Fedor just don't like the happy meal and fries'd excuse for an MMA show the UFC has become...then again, it's amazing what people will actually sit and watch these days.

        Why exactly is UFC the "happy meal" excuse for MMA? Because they don't allow kicking in the head when people are down? Blame John McCain for that.
