    Tito Ortiz is amazing. Hands down my favorite and a close 2nd is Kimbo Slice.
    Great Job EA. ����

    The kimbo model is so good. I haven't seen Ortiz's yet.
    The kimbo model is so good. I haven't seem Ortiz's yet.

    Yh they got Kimbo SPOT ON. I mean down to every little detail like the hairs on his body, his gold teeth and mouthpiece with the american/bahamas flags on it. He's easily the best model.
    Hell yea man, definitely look forward to trying out these guys in ranked...hopefully they have some good stats and unique moves/perks that make them viable "A-Level" fighters
    (yea yea I know, Tito would never be able to beat JBJ or Cormier in 'real life', the sport has evolved a ton in the past 10 or 20 years, but it's still a game right? lol)
    Ended up buying this edition because it was 50% off with Xbox Live Gold. I've been wanting to get the game and this seemed like a good deal. It definitely feels much different than UFC 2, in a good way.
