i disliked EA MMA but EA should do good with UFC name. But its not that THQ sold EA UFC lol...Zuffa let EA have ufc license.. but i hope EA does a better job both THQ and EA MMA(since EA MMA servers was shut down after like a year or so and price drop to 20dollars after a few months after the game was release) either way i want my MMA games
