As an MMA fan, this game is AWESOME.

The controls are perfect. I can't think of a better way to translate all that MMA entails into gaming controls than this. They take a day or 2 to really get used to and they are pretty deep. But once you understand them they really become second nature. If you know nothing about MMA I would imagine alot of the terms in this game will require constant referencing. But then again, if you've never watched or played football Madden would seem like another language.
The career is quite immersive. The managing of your training vs. your resting is great. A nice little touch of realism thats not to hard to understand. The thing that is so great about this game is that you can customize your fighter to suite your style of play. You like to stand and trade punches? Create a boxer with good hands, take down defense and grappling defense. Wanna be ground and pounder? focus more on your ground offense, grappling and ground strikes. So many options.
This is easily the best fighting game I've ever played. After playing this games like tekken and street fighter kind of seem childish. I loved Fight Night Rnd 3 and this game CRUSHES it, bad. If you even remotely like fighting games you have to check this out. If you're a fan of the UFC or MMA in general, this is a must have.
