EA explains why bruce lee is in the UFC game.
"I feel like this is the most ridiculous question," he said. "Why put Bruce Lee in a UFC game? It's Bruce Lee.
"You have the premier organization in the fastest growing sport in the world, the UFC, and the most iconic martial artist in the history of the world, Bruce Lee - a martial artist renowned for his philosophies that laid the groundwork for modern mixed martial arts. I can't conceive of a universe where bringing these two things together doesn't make sense."
The game's art director Ian Lloyd also discussed the creative process in adding Bruce Lee to the game. "Nobody wants to tackle a legendary icon like this and mess it up," he explained.
"We were quickly connected to Bruce Lee Enterprises who provided us with not only an impressive catalogue of digital references spanning Bruce's acting career, but many behind-the-scenes and candid shots that helped us identify the specific era we wanted to capture as well as the iconic elements of his face and body.
"A real bonus was the life-cast they sent us that gave us a truly definitive three-dimensional reference that would prove to be the next best thing to having Bruce scanned.
"This does not just look like Bruce Lee. It is Bruce Lee. The way he carries himself, his fighting stance, his rippling physique, devastating speed, signature strikes and accompanying yells, whoops and shrieks.
"We have summoned this pinnacle of human strength, speed and spirit into our world and it has truly been an honor and a career highlight for us to do so."
