EA Sports MMA Grabs Randy Couture

Randy Couture, one of the most popular mixed martial arts fighters ever, helping bring it into the sporting mainstream, will be the second fighter headlining EA Sports MMA, the series announced Friday.

Couture (pictured with EA Sports boss Peter Moore above) joins Fedor Emelianenko, announced earlier as a headline athlete. Other named fighters include Gegard Mousasi of the U.S. and Renato Sobral of Brazil.

Couture, in addition to his celebrity, will bring a ground-and-pound fighting style to the game, expected to release sometime next year.

This isn't the first time Couture's appeared in a video game, or in an EA product for that matter. He was in Command & Conquer: Red Alert as Commander Warren Fuller.
