The "Ultimate" in Real Fighting Gameplay

NEW YORK CITY – The eagerly awaited Ultimate Fighting Championships videogame was unveiled to the gaming community at this year’s E3 (Eletronic Entertainment Expo) event held last week (May 11-13). The game, which ign.com, the most visited gaming site on the Internet, calls, "…one of the best fighting titles at the show from any angle, be it visuals or gameplay," is being hailed as the best Dreamcast fighting game to hit the scene this year. The UFC videogame, published by Crave Entertainment, is set for worldwide release in Fall 2000.

For the real deal catch UFC XXVI live on Pay-Per-View on Friday June 9th, 2000. The Heavyweight Title Belt is on the line this time when Kevin "The Monster" Randleman and Pedro "The Rock" Rizzo clash in the OctagonTM for the most prestigious title in mixed martial arts. Also, UFC Lightweight Champion "The Croation Sensation" Pat Miletich will be back defending his title for the third time against submission artist and UFC newcomer John "The Natural" Alessio. Plus a full night of action as the best athletes in the MMA do battle in the Ultimate Proving ground. Seeing is believing on June 9th from the Five Seasons Center in Cedar Rapids, IA. Remember, if it’s not in the Octagon…it isn’t real.
