EA Sports UFC to feature female fighters for the first time


What do you call it when there’s a damsel in distress, by way of being put in a punching-headlock by another damsel? You call it the next entry into the Ultimate Fighting Championship video games, that’s what! Electronic Arts has announced the inclusion of female fighters in EA Sports UFC, marking the first entry of playable female characters into the series.  Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and contender Miesha Tate are headlining this one, so fans of either will be pleased at this addition to the roster.
