GameSpy: UFC 2009: Undisputed Preview

GameSpy writes: "Believe it or not, mixed martial arts is the hottest sport in America, and you can attribute that to the resurgence of Zuffa's UFC. The Ultimate Fighting Championship continues to draw large pay-per-view audiences, and the time is ripe for the franchise to make its return to videogames. We recently had the chance to check out a demonstration of THQ's UFC 2009: Undisputed at E3 2008, and haven't been this excited about a UFC title since the license debuted on the Sega Dreamcast.

Fans of the UFC will be most excited to learn that Undisputed will feature 80 different fighters, culled from the expansive UFC roster. You've got UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn, middleweights like champ Anderson "The Spider" Silva, welterweights like champion Georges St. Pierre, and light heavyweights like current champ Forrest Griffin and the man he defeated in a split decision, the incredibly entertaining Quinton "Rampage" Jackson."

-Over 80 different fighters; deep grappling and ground games

-We haven't had the chance to try it out first-hand

Hoping for the best, expecting the worst.
MMA at its best is a might bit more complicated then boxing or the other general fighting games out there. Standup, takedowns (shoots and slams), ground and pound, submissions.... How do you go for an armbar? How do you sense an armbar is coming and defend it? Is your fighter a jack of all trades or a stand up guy or a wrestler or a JuiJitsu or a Sambo guy?

I dont know, I dont think they can pull it off. I suspect it will be like the wrestling games or any other typical fighter. BUT if they do pull it off, I will buy it in a heartbeat.
