The press conference started off with M-1 Global’s USA Vice-President Jerry Millen announcing that Fedor Emelianenko will be headlining the upcoming EA Sports MMA video game. Renato “Babalu” Sobral and Gegard Mousasi will also be in the game according to Millen.
EA’s MMA game is scheduled to be released sometime in 2010 for the XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 video game consoles. The characters within the game will consist almost entirely of non-UFC fighters. The exception is former UFC Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture who is expected to appear in the game.
