Female Fighters Coming to UFC Game

Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate coming to next-gen fighting game

By J.J. Miller

EA Sports has begun releasing some of the fighters to be included in next year's UFC game for the Xbox One and Playstation 4. It comes as no surprise that Jon Jones, Benson Henderson, Anthony Pettis, Chuck Liddell and Alexander Gustafsson were among those announced on Wednesday as part of the roster, but
fans of the MMA Organization were treated to an unexpected but welcomed blow as well.

EA added that UFC Women's Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate will also be among the female fighters ever included in a UFC video game.

"Since we added the Women's Bantamweight division earlier this year, the women have impressed everyone," UFC president Dana White said in a release put out by EA Sports. "The fights are always exciting, Ronda Rousey is as talented as any champion in the UFC and her rivalry with Miesha Tate is one of the most intense in UFC history. The female division has become a huge part of the UFC and fans will now be able to experience fighting with them in the game."

Powered by EA Sports' Ignite technology, EA Sports UFC is expected to release in the spring.
