EA Sports UFC 2 is getting a brand new feature called Live Event Competitions. Coming this Saturday, May 14th, players can square off to win Ultimate Team rewards, as well as a real-world trip to the live finals, and a trip to the UFC Fan Expo as part of the 5th Annual UFC Intentional Fight Week. Semi-finalists and the winner of the grand final match, taking place on July 8th, receive tickets to UFC 200: Cormier vs Jones 2, with the winner also getting a cool $10,000 USD and a belt as they are crowned the EA Sports UFC 2 World Champion!
“Fans love EA SPORTS UFC 2 for the intense head-to-head competition, and we’re excited to raise the stakes for all our players,” said Todd Sitrin, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA’s Competitive Gaming Division. “Live Event Competition encourages players to experience the thrill of each bout by bringing fans even closer to the intensity of mixed martial arts.”
“We are thrilled to launch our first online competition to find the top EA SPORTS UFC 2 players,” UFC Senior Vice President of Global Consumer Products Tracey Bleczinski said. “UFC International Fight Week is the largest celebration of combat sports in the world and we couldn’t think of a better place than the UFC Fan Expo to crown the first-ever EA SPORTS UFC 2 champion!”
