All Articles: UFC Undisputed 3
Scheduled for a January 2012 release on the PS3 and Xbox 360, Silva beat out four other UFC champions (lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, and heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez) for the honor.
“Enabling fans worldwide to select the UFC Undisputed 3 cover athlete has been an incredibly rewarding experience,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Games at THQ. “Anderson Silva possesses a tremendous work ethic and incredible prowess inside the Octagon, making him an excellent choice to serve as our cover athlete for the game.”
THQ and sports promoter Zuffa, LLC are letting fans pick who gets to be on the cover of UFC Undisputed 3. Voters have from 6 AM PT on August 26 to 12 PM PT on September 30 to choose from the following UFC stars:
- Frank Edgar
- Jon Jones
- Anderson Silva
- Georges St. Pierre
- Cain Velasquez
Voting will also enter fans into a sweepstakes to win tickets for a live UFC event in the future. Let your voice be heard! The only foreseeable downside to this promotion is that you can’t vote for a fighter’s hairstyle and color like BioWare allows.

No surprises in THQ’s E3 lineup
After a flurry of announcements this week, THQ has finally unveiled their complete E3 lineup. Aside from the new stuff like Metro: Last Light, WWE ’12 and UFC Undisputed 3, this is the same lineup of games THQ talked about last year.
Sadly, there appears to be no mention of the publisher’s more distant projects like Darksiders II, Devil’s Third, Guillermo Del Toro’s Insane and the Turtle Rock-developed first person shooter.

Just like they said during their quarterly financial report, THQ has officially announced that UFC Undisputed 3 is in development. The third game in the MMA fighting series is due for release in January 2012 on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
UFC Undisputed 3 will add a huge number of new modes to the franchise’s already packed feature list. The biggest addition is definitely Pride Mode, which features the more brutal style of fighting found in the now defunct promotion. Pride fights include “soccer-style kicks, head stomps and ground knees to the head,” all of which are barred in typical MMA fights.
Besides Pride Mode, the entire game is being rebuilt with an emphasis on making the series more accessible. UFC 3 will include “devastating new moves, responsive striking controls, refined visual presentation and the introduction of a brand new submission system” as well as the option of using traditional or simplified control options. Two new weight classes, featherweight and bantamweight, and more than 150 playable fighters round out the new features.
“We are excited to launch UFC Undisputed 3 in January 2012 and expect it to be the best version yet,” UFC President Dana White said. “We’ve added two new weight classes and several new features to the game that will bring UFC fans closer to the Octagon than ever before.”
