For the first time ever in a UFC game, EA Sports UFC will feature playable female fighters.

“This is a great moment for videogames and for Mixed Martial Arts,” said EA Sports UFC GM Dean Richards. “In our commitment to delivering the most realistic fighting experience ever achieved, we wanted to represent the full spectrum of talent and diversity of all the fighters in the sport, including women who have become an undeniable force to be reckoned with.”

Headlining the mode is UFC Women's Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and top bantamweight contender Miesha Tate.

“Since we added the Women’s Bantamweight division earlier this year, the women have impressed everyone,” said Dana White, UFC President. “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," he said.
