Fighting games aren’t just for the boys anymore. EA and UFC have announced that Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate will be among the women included in EA Sports UFC.
“Since we added the Women’s Bantamweight division earlier this year, the women have impressed everyone,” said Dana White, UFC President, in a statement. “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.”
This will be the first game to feature women fighters, although additional names have not been disclosed. The announcement of Rousey and Tate’s inclusion coincides with the first episode of The Ultimate Fighter, which airs tonight.
EA Sports UFC is expected to be released Spring 2014.
