Bruce Lee to appear in EA Sports UFC *updated with trailer*

Electronic Arts has announced that Bruce Lee, "The Father of Mixed Martial Arts", will make his first step into the Octagon in EA SPORTS UFC, when the game launches on June 17, 2014. 

Pre-ordering will get you instant day-one access to Bruce, or you can complete the game's career mode at Pro difficulty to unlock him. Players can fight with the legend across four different weight classes and test his legacy against the best of the best in the UFC. 

"I am so excited about this opportunity to bring my father back to videogames!" said Shannon Lee, Bruce Lee's daughter, CEO of Bruce Lee, LLC and Chairperson of the Bruce Lee Foundation. "I'm thrilled that fans can now interact with him in a new way. The EA SPORTS UFC development team has been incredible to work with, and they've done a great job capturing the look and feel of my father. I think people will love getting a chance to fulfill a fight fantasy by playing Bruce Lee in the new UFC game."

"There's no debate, Bruce Lee is the father of mixed martial arts," said Dana White, UFC President. "He believed not one style of fighting was the best and that you had to have a little piece of everything to be a complete fighter. He was proven right when the first UFC event took place in 1993."

"It has always been part of our vision to have Bruce Lee, the most iconic martial artist of all time, in the first ever EA SPORTS UFC," said Brian Hayes, Creative Director, EA. "The team is very excited and tremendously honored to have the privilege of bringing Bruce Lee to life in our game. We've been working closely with the Bruce Lee team to ensure we represent the legend with as much visual and gameplay fidelity as possible."

I know this is just a cash in on the Lee estates part but I don't care. The more games I can be Bruce Lee in the better. :3
