Electronic Arts today announced that EA SPORTS UFC will feature playable female fighters for the first time ever in a UFC videogame. UFC Women’s Bantamwight Champion Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate, the female coaches of the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, will be headlining the roster of female fighters. They are also scheduled to face off at UFC 168.

“This is a great moment for videogames and for Mixed Martial Arts,” said Dean Richards, General Manager, EA SPORTS UFC. “In our commitment to delivering the most realistic fighting experience ever achieved, we wanted to represent the full spectrum of talent and diversity of all the fighters in the sport, including women who have become an undeniable force to be reckoned with.”

“Since we added the Women’s Bantamweight division earlier this year, the women have impressed everyone,” said Dana White, UFC President. “The fights are always exciting, Ronda Rousey is as talented as any champion in the UFC and her rivalry with Miesha Tate is one of the most intense in UFC history. The female division has become a huge part of the UFC and fans will now be able to experience fighting with them in the game.”

EA SPORTS UFC is scheduled for release on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 in Spring 2014.
