Not so long ago climbed UFC president Dana White the Electronic Arts stage at E3. The American showed himself happy with the currently just clinched agreement between UFC and EA, which from then on was going to make the UFC games. How right that was happiness, there is debatable. Under the banner of THQ developer Yuke’s made some great UFC games. EA Sports showed seeing published EA Sports UFC in 2014 the time being not that could match level. Cooperation between UFC and EA started so slowly. To 2 UFC task to show that there is an upward trend.

Bout between Overeem and Arlovski in EA Sports UFC 2.

In addition, the play in any event is aided by an external factor. The interest in the sport will be in the UK may increase with the arrival of a UFC event at Ahoy in Rotterdam. The Dutch MMA fighter Alistair Overeem will on May 8, in the main event of the evening, take on the Belarusian Andrei Arlovski. Stefan Struve also comes into action in Rotterdam; he will fight against Brazilian Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. Both fighters are also part of the roster of 250 fighters who are found in UFC 2.

With that factoid upward trend is immediately deployed. While this time are also many women, including of course the famous Ronda Rousey, but also the Dutch Germaine De Randamie. In the men are naturally UFC greats like Jon Jones, Chuck Liddell, Rampage Jackson, Anderson Silva and find Georges St-Pierre, but also better-known ‘mainstream names.
