If you're eligible, you can register for the beta here, but there are no guarantees that you'll get in. You'll need to register by January 21 at 10 AM PST for a shot at getting an entry code.

If you do get into the EA Sports UFC 2 beta, you can try out four different things. These include Quick Fight mode (unspecified Welterweight division fighters are available for three- and five-round bouts) and UFC Ultimate Team, as well as practice mode and some "Skill Challenge" minigames.

EA also mentions that the EA Sports UFC 2 beta supports online play for 1v1 matches, while character customization will be available for UFC Ultimate Team. As with other betas, from EA and other companies, stats and progress with not carry forward to the full game.

EA Sports UFC 2 launches on March 15 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Everyone who preorders the game will get the fighters Bas Rutten and Kazushi Sakuraba right out of the gate, as well as a mystery fighter to be named later.

Ronda may not fight at all in 2016. It's stupid she's on the cover. She's too busy trying to be a bad actress in shitty movies.
