Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

“UFC 2009: Undisputed” Video Game Trailer

As debuted on SpikeTV Friday night, here’s the first gameplay trailer for the UFC’s new PS3/Xbox 360/etc. jammy-jam, featuring Rampage vs. Forrest, and commentary by Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg. According to a preview on IGN:

There’s no HUD or health bar, so fighters don’t get worn down till they’re eventually tapped out or KO’d. A fighter can be finished at any time, depending upon the situation. On the other hand, there are more defensive moves and blocking and countering in the game, with a design more similar to traditional fighting games than old MMA or wrestling games. THQ specifically stated that “…button mashing will make you lose.”

Furthermore, the happenings of the fight actually have an effect on fighters during the fight beyond simply wearing them down. When Rampage used punches to the body to weaken Forrest, purple welts similar to what was seen on Liddell’s body when he fought Keith Jardine appeared near Griffin’s kidney. A small cut had formed over the former Ultimate Fighter’s eye, while Rampage had his left eye nearly swollen shut by a series of excellent Griffin knees. All the injuries looked authentic, but also affected how successful each fighter was at accomplishing what they wanted to as the fight wore on.

Reportedly the game will feature an 80+ fighter roster — which still doesn’t explain how War Machine and Saunders made the cut.

about 100X time more ppl who play consoles games you idiot. Your the dipshit who either pays for crappy internet play..or you get free even crappier internet play. Second, PC games are much more advanced, detailed, difficult, engaging, and a lot better in every aspect of gaming the PC can match or even out other words..your a huge noob who knows nothing about gaming in general

Looked at other vids of the game
There is definitely blood and a lot

Anyone else notice it never shows them bleeding?
There are a few spots when something flies off Forrest I think thats his mouth piece though.
That would be a huge disappointment if there was no blood.

The game is still a ways off so maybe they will tighten things up by then. In the meantime though, PRIDE FC for PS2 is still the best MMA game to date.

Its all animation based, no ragdoll, which makes it kind of look like shit. The way each animation transitions, or doesn't. I don't ahve the highest hopes for the game after seeing that trailer. I wish ea would have done it, similar to their fight night 3 game. We'll see i guess.

I bought a PS3 three weeks ago I am so amped for this game. The original trailer looked so good I couldnt wait. This trailer makes things look a little less realistic and choppy but hopefully they can finally make a good MMA game. The original UFC for the PS1 sucks monkey balls for sure.
I hope they have expanded on take downs and ground game. It was very restrictive in the original. One of the worst things about newer games is the learning curve you need to get things going. I can't help but wonder if they incorporate 6 axis controllers at all?

I for realz need a HD television to play this game on, as I already own a PS3 and two controllers.
