Anyone else think its a bit of a joke that the game is two months from being out and the download content is planned? I hope its not an "EAish" number of microsoft points per new fighter as well.

-_-

That's how I feel right now --not taking anything away from those two fighters but... oh come on.

I hope they put in Randy somewhere down the line. I don't see why not as Tito is in the game as well.

Give us Randy, THQ!

The DLC is only for the pre-order though. I think thats why they did it. Give out free fighters for pre-ordering. I mean I think its kindof lame also but I'd rather see more than 2 fighters, Ryan and Efrain, i mean Junie Browning would be cool and a few more. That russian guy too from the previous ultimate fighter.

Yeah it's Gamestop pre-order bonus. It's not actual DLC. Better than nothing I suppose.

Yeh and so is Arlovski... it was obviously done while Randy was out and those two were in...

Not just these two though which i know are gamestop only but there is talk about a lot of fighters being download content way before the game is out... and i hope its more of a pack than pay for an individual fighter.

Yeah I was mighty disappointed when I saw Jens Pulver isn't going to be in this game. As for Randy, it'll be a shocker if he'll even be in this game in the future through DLC. Listen kids just because Randy and Dana renegotiated the contract doesn't mean that there's still no bad blood, I only hope that it doesn't turn into a Tito and Dana thing.

Theres no bad blood and it wont turn into a Tito thing.. Dana doesnt dislike Randy even during during the whole big thing he said that.. As for Jens pulver hes at 145 and not in the ufc so i can see why hes not in it.

I know Jens isn't in the UFC anymore he's in WEC but I would've still liked to see him in the game because Cro Cop, Silva and Arlosvki are not in the UFC anymore but they made it in the game (I know they signed the gaming contracts). Dana didn't hate Randy but Randy did hate Dana at that time first for not buying Fedor, then for allegedly not paying him enough because Cro Cop got paid more.
Trust me when I say this if the money issue comes up again between those two, I can guarentee you that it will turn into a Tito and Dana thing because Randy is making sure no one is getting between him and his proper salery, just like any one of us would do.

You're right that it is getting off topic but when I said Dana and Tito I meant how Tito left the UFC and went to another organization, I would hate to see Randy leave UFC or retire.
Back on topic Efrain or Bader aren't really good choices because if you wanted to put a great up and coming fighter for pre order DLC it would definitely have to be Jon Jones, this man dazzeled with his throws and ended up decimating/overwhelming a veteren and UTF favorite Stephan Bonnar.
Second there is Dustin Hazelett, this man has world class submissions, has the best submission I've seen in the UFC and is already making a highlight reel based off those submissions.

PS: For future DLC they better put in Shane Carwin, any man that destroys a world class fighter like Gabriel Gonzaga in the first round, that's the man I want to play with.

I just hope maybe like 2 months after the game they do like 20 more fighters for 800 points and not 150 points a fighter right after launch..

But you and me both know that that's not going to happen, it's EA we're talking about, they don't do anything for free. They'll put 4 fighters at a time for 800 point, then they'll call it the striker pack (4 stand- up fighters), the submission pack (4 submission specialist) and other packs with different names.

I can still see something like that happening but its THQ were nto tlaking about lucki;ly not EA.. otherwise yes all hope would be lost. EA are making an MMA game though..

Oops I completely forgot that it's not EA that's making this game but in any case what I said still stands just because they need to not only add the fighters but also the way they fight and in MMA fighter styles are like snow flakes, so that equals to a lot of money to put new fighters into the game.

Yeah I heard that EA is looking into MMA because MMA is destroying boxing but to be honest, what origination can they get Affliction doesn't have the build up or roster yet, IFL is dead, Elite XC is soon to be dead, probably WEC but UFC/Zuffa owns that, you can forget about internationals like Dream, so that narrows down to Strikeforce. They got a new deal in Showtime, which is a plus for them and they have Cung Li, which is the soon to be Anderson Silva.

Also to Jethrow having these two fighters shouldn't deter you from buying the game outright, it should just make you not pre order it because these aren't the only fighters in the game.

I like Clay Guida a whole lot but he tends to grind out to get decisions victory, that's why he's not in the game. The man has extremely impressive cardio, so it always shocks me that he doesn't ware down his opponents, then kicks it into gear when the opponent is worn out (Like Sean Sherk does it).

They should put in Junior dos Santos and Shane Carwin eventually. Those guys can bang. :eek:

Absolutely Shane Carwin and Dos Santos, I would love to see Carwin fight Chiek Kongo (Clash of the titans), the winner fights for the title. I find it funny that Dos Santos sent Fabricio Werdum packing out the UFC.

Yeah I remember watching that fight and Werdum got knocked the fuck out. Nobody knew who Dos santos was and for him to KO a top 10 HW (at the time) was amazing. He's only 24 years old...unreal.

People don't give Shane Carwin enough credit. He just KO Gonzaga who is a top 5 HW. Carwin got rocked and taken down by an opponent who can KO or submit you anytime. 10-0 and none of those fights have gone past the 1st round. Much better than lesnar's 3-1-0.

I would like to see Carwin vs Kongo for the number 1 contendor match as well. Can't pick who would win though...

Lately, yes. But when he first burst on the scene in the UFC, he had FOTN bonuses with Huerta and Tyson. Guida is a pure wrestler at heart, but against another wrestler, he will go toe to toe. Sanchez/Guida will be amazing considering both are great wrestlers and have cardio for days.

Honestly I was suprised that Gonzaga overpowered Carwin and had him on the ground. Gonzaga got sloppy and ate a good punch. And don't forget, he was going toe to toe with Gonzaga and did get stunned. Did the same against Wain.

Give us Randy, THQ!

havent you figured out that Randy signed his likeness away to EA when he appeared in Red Alert?

USE YOUR BRAINS PEOPLE

he won't be in this THQ UFC game because EA owns the rights to his likeness/name... unless you create your own Randy and call him "HANDY" dont expect to see him in this game

if you dont want the DLC, go buy it from best buy...

04-09-2009, 10:10 AM
Its a good theory but its nto right.... Randys not in the game because he wasn't in the ufc when they made the game... same reason Tito and Arlovski are... EA do not own his likeness because his character isnt Randy Couture..

Seriously there are a million fighters that should have come as a bonus for pre ordering the game. The fact that two scrubs like this are the bonus is just ridiculous. I seriously doubt anyone was like holy crap I can't wait to play as ryan bader I really hope he is in the game.... Had they thrown in an awesome exclusive bonus fighter or two then I guarantee pre orders would have been higher than they are. with that being said, time for me to pre order this bad boy. lol

04-28-2009, 10:45 PM
I really agree that from a gamer standpoint Bader and Efrain weren't the best choices for pre-order, but let's face it...what season just ended for TUF? Season 8 in which both those fighters won, neither was overwhelmingly impressive imo, but still I think it's a good strategy to try and make these two more marketable to the UFC. But I must admit, I can see Bader doing fairly decent in LHW division, maybe just outside Top 10 LHW, wanna see him fight some more skilled fighters.

First off, that dert mcgert guy doesn't know what he's talking about. Second, don't tell microsoft but I'd pay a shit load to get Batman in the game. I was fucking pissed when I saw the lineup and didn't see him on there. I'm hoping they release DLC by weightclass and I can get a LW pack with Batman, McLovin & Clay Guida. The latter just so I can beat his ass with Nate Diaz :)

I am not to worried about DLC in this game imo, THQ is hopefully going to make the create a fighter so in depth that there just hurting there own game. While everyone else is paying for DLC fighters, I will be creating them. Can't wait to make Fedor..

GeezusDylan160
04-30-2009, 05:34 AM
I think it's smart of them to hold back fighters for DLC, I will shell out as much money as I need to to play as Clay Guida (I know half the people on here think he sucks, but to me he's just that good...he's the reason I love MMA and blahh blahh blahh). You figure they do like a "lightweight pack" and give you 5 fighters (Cole Miller, Clay Guida, Jeremy Stephens, Joe Lauzon and Josh Neer) for I dunno....$10, I'd get it because I am a fool who doesn't value money at all :p

P.S. I guarentee you will be among at least 1000 other people playing with a CAF Fedor lol.

I'm pretty sure all the scrubs they put on the roster are there because they are some what known. Sure the only reason they are know is getting their ass kicked by a top marketed fighter, but casual fans may see it as. "Man I can pick Eddie Sanchez and TKO him with Crocop again, sweet!" Guessing Justin Mccully made the cut because Tito got him the spot, they're really good friends and would make sense since Tito was around for for quite awhile when the game first started being worked on. It would seem it would also be alot easier to get alot of the newer/unknown fighters in the game as they wouldn't have to negotiation with them as much since they would be more then willing to get in a game to get their name out.
