Today, THQ announced that Brock Lesnar would feature on the cover of UFC Undisputed 2010, the follow-up to last year's 3.5 million-unit selling mixed martial arts fighter. UFC Undisputed 2010 will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 25, while a PSP edition follows sometime later this year.

A former college and WWE professional wrestler, Lesnar made his UFC debut in 2008, losing to MMA veteran Frank Mir. However, two fights later, Lesnar went on to take the UFC heavyweight championship belt by defeating MMA legend Randy Couture. (Couture has also signed on to appear in EA MMA.) Lesnar went on to defend his title against Mir in July 2009, and his current UFC record stands at 3-1. Though he has been sidelined with an illness since last year, Lesnar is expected to return in 2010.

As for UFC Undisputed 2010, the game will feature more than 100 league fighters, as well as commentary from ringside staples Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg. THQ has also introduced a new sway and posture system to enhance a player's ability to defend and deliver coups-de-grace attacks, as well as incorporated new moves from the sambo, karate, and Greco-Roman wrestling disciplines.
