Avi Burk, IGN.com’s official gatekeeper of roster announcements for the UFC’s pending release “UFC Undisputed 2009,” last week announced that Brock Lesnar has officially been made part of the game.
The game, set for a release in Spring of 2009, is being developed from the ground up by THQ. It will not be built upon any of the UFC’s past efforts in the gaming industry and promises to be a leap forward in the genre.
Well, the real-life fight already played out at UFC 91 — where Kenny Florian surprisingly finished Joe Stevenson with a rear naked choke near the end of the first round — but fans, and even the fighters themselves, will soon be able to recreate the action as Burk says that Florian and Stevenson are the latest official additions to the UFC Undisputed 2009 roster.
Who knows, maybe Stevenson can use the game to help sharpen his strategy for a rematch. He and Florian are two of the brightest stars in the UFC lightweight division. They certainly have to fall into the “highly probable” category for a potential rematch.
