It's hilarious the way he says the shorts thing.

I place logos IN my shorts because I want to be unique.

They don't call it The Octagon in EA sports MMA, that term is copyrighted by Zuffa for use by its subsidiaries (UFC, WEC).  If EA called it the octagon they'd be seriously sued.

man i want logos on my shorts.

I really hope this game is good.  This looks like it could be even better than the UFC titles, but looks can be so deceiving.   
 
I'm glad there's finally a release date attached to this game, though.

What? Bas is in this? I'll have to buy it now...

Bas Rutten? Dub Step? GOTY!!!!!!!

Posted by Terjay

I'm also digging the different rule sets.

This might have just sold me on this game. Pretty impressed by the content and detail of this one.

I really like the who camp and organization stuff. Make a good fighting system and I'm in.

The HTC product placement is a nice touch.

Looks great visually and overall, but I see what Ekberg was saying on the Bombcast about the punches... They just seem slow, and not that damaging.

Sold me with Bas Rutten.

It would be really cool if there was more than 5 good fighters in it.

I want to put logos on my head.

All the window dressing they talked about sounded great, unfortunately every time the video cut to gameplay footage it looked weak with floaty grabbing and unsatisfying punches.

Edited by Skooky

The first piece of gameplay in this trailer is a ghost punch that knocks a down followed by a canned-animation punch that slides the guys like three feet to the right.
 
Edit: You can place logos on your shorts.

Exactly how I feel; the content looks very promising (wasn't expecting Rickson to appear) but it wont matter if the actual fighting is crap. I really hope EA don't screw this up...

"EA Sports. It's MMA!"
 
EA Sports will no longer produce any games not related to MMA: CONFIRMED!

Posted by MrKlorox

You can design your own shorts?

always thought it was a shape, myself.
 
Game is looking good.  That punch at the beginning did look pretty messed up. After playing a couple of months of UFC Undisputed 2010 (more-so putting up with it simply because I'm an MMA fan) I don't think this game could be worse in any possible way.  You can simply tell by the amount of detail they are putting into the locations and everything that they are putting way more effort into the game than THQ Yukes did with their game...perhaps it had to do more with time constraits needing it out just a year after the first but this one just looks way better.

That would be cool if Jacare, Aoki, and Noons were good.

@the_purgatory_station:  If I remember correctly, you were allowed to do that in PRIDE fighting.

Dude, YOU CAN PUT LOGO's ON YOUR SHORTS 
 
Apart from the terrible narrator, the game looks good but I'm not too sure if it can compete with UFC 2010, since they have the licence and everything. I mean EA Sports are absolutely dominating the sports game market but even if they nail it, the gameplay can't be that much better than UFC's since they did great gameplay in the first place. I just can't see myself wanting to play a MMA game without fighters like Rashad, Machida and Lesner
