New Fighter Confirmed for EA Sports UFC

By Jonathan Barnes, 2 years ago
At the rate EA Sports keeps announcing new fighters for their upcoming MMA title, EA SPORTS UFC, you would expect Jean-Claude Van Damme to eventually get the call. Unfortunately (for JCVD fans), today is not that day. Today is the day they announce that gamers will be able to play as one of the greatest legends in UFC history, Royce Gracie, the winner of the first-ever UFC tournament.

Unlike most of the other fighters set to appear in UFC, Gracie has two different ways that he can be unlocked. You may either beat Career Mode on Pro difficulty or higher, OR pre-order the game.

EA SPORTS UFC is set to be released on June 17th in North America and June 20th in Europe.
