    I'm really dissapointed in EA. Adam made a good point when he was talking about how great FNR4 was, but this game is really a rip off. Dana White has made several complaints about how EA told him "you guys arn't a real sport", and then they turn around and make this... tisk tisk EA. Dana White also says that if any UFC fighters join MMA then hes considering it a breach of contract and removing them from the UFC. The only reason any UFC fighters are even on there is because all the crappy fighters that are near retirement found lupols in their old contracts so they could make some extra money. The new rings comment made me laugh, my decision for buying a game would not be based on what a ring looked like. Dana White says that they might even be incorporating PRIDE into the franchise which has a boxing ring, and who knows, they might already have one because the game dosnt come out for another 2 months, but I already know its going to be better than this rip off game with crappy fighters. One of the reasons I played UFC 09 was because I was excited to play with some of my favorite fighters, and i'm going to buy UFC 2010 so I can not only play with my favorite fighters (KIMBO!) but also because I know its the original and that its improved greatly or at least thats what i've heard. I'd be ashamed if anyone buys this game. If you do buy it i'm sending Lesnar, Mir, Silva, Jackson, Penn, GSP, and Koscheck to your house so they can kick your butt, jk, but seriously dont buy it

    Most of these fighters are second rank. Cung Le just got knocked out. Nick Diaz isn't even in the top 5 Welterweights. Fedor "what's his last name?" never drew paper views and he wont draw games. Compare his 230 lbs talent to the greatness of 265 Broken Lesnar who looks like Thor in carnate. I hope they spend the time making really good gameplay because lots of these fighters aren't really known, at least in the UK or North American Continent. It's unfair but it's true. UFC does have
    GSP (Current #1 Welterwieght int he world and runner up for p4p)
    Anderson Silva (Pound 4 pound best fighter)
    Bj Penn (LIght heavy weight champ and a possible p4p)
    Thiago Alves
    Randy Couture and many many more...

    He made a good point, "MMA is a sport, not a league" - I don't know many fighters outside of UFC, so I hope the gameplay is superb. Add in some good fighter backgrounds too because that's what makes sports game fun, not only doing something badass, but doing something badass w/ someone you know is a badass.
