Supremacy MMA To Feature Women Fighters: Girl Fight, Ahoy!

While female characters have been a fighting game staple since Chun Li strapped on her leggings in the first Street Fighter, chicks have generally not been featured in realistic fighting games, or, worse, are included more as cheap T & A than actual combatants.. All that's about to change. Supremacy MMA will feature two up-and-coming female mixed martial artists, Felice “Lil Bulldog” Herrig and Michele “Diablita” Gutierrez, as playable characters. According to the company, these are the first females ever in an MMA video game.

“Female fighters are not represented in MMA games and face a giant glass ceiling in the fighting world,” said Ricci Rukavina, CEO and creative director of developer Kung Fu Factory. “We’re proud to be a part of raising their profile and giving these tough-as-nails fighters their due in the virtual cage.”

Supremacy MMA is slated for a June release on PS3 and Xbox 360.

I'm as girl-power as the next guy, so I'm like, "Fight on, Diablita! You go, Lil Bulldog!" but there's something troubling to me about the screenshot you see above. Those women are beat-the-hell-up, and a battered woman, even in the ring, is a shocking image, even if I support the idea behind including them in the game.

Check out the trailers of Diablita and Lil' Bulldog in action:
