EA Sports has officially announced that Bruce Lee will be in the new UFC game as a playable character.
Revealed earlier today, Bruce Lee can be used in flyweight, bantam weight, featherweight, and lightweight divisions once the career mode has been completed on pro difficulty or higher. When asked why they would put Bruce Lee in a mixed martial arts game, creative director Brian Hayes said, "I feel like this is the most ridiculous question. Why put Bruce Lee in a UFC game? It’s. Bruce. Lee…" and explained that Lee "laid the groundwork for modern mixed martial arts."
Bruce Lee and the actual MMA fighters will duke it out in the octagon on June 17th for PS4 and Xbox One.
