EA Sports UFC 2 Reveals Mike Tyson as a Playable Character

By   /   Jan 20, 2016

EA Sports UFC 2 is set for release in March, and while two of the fighters available for Pre-order have already been revealed, one was mysteriously held back. Today this fighter has been revealed as Mike Tyson.

Mike Tyson’s inclusion in the game came with a new trailer which can be seen above. This will be his debut in a mixed martial arts game, and he will be available in two forms, “Iron” Mike Tyson and “Legacy” Mike Tyson. With the Iron version of the fighter this will be based on him during his clime to stardom. Legacy will be based on him coming to the end of his career.

To play Tyson as a day-one character you’ll need to pre-order the game. For other players they will need to unlock him by progressing through the game and making it to the Hall of Fame in Career Mode. As expected, the character will have plenty of power in his punches. He will fight in two different weight classes, Light heavyweight and heavyweight.

“When you think about the most devastating fighters of all time, Mike Tyson is either around, or at the top of everyone’s list. It’s fun to think that if MMA was as popular back when he was competing as it is today, you might have seen Tyson put on four ounce gloves and step into the Octagon,” said Creative Director Brian Hayes. “This is one of those great ‘what ifs’ that we get to create when making a game like EA SPORTS UFC 2.”

Mike Tyson who is a big fan of UFC also had this to say:

“As a huge fan, I’m honored to be part of EA SPORTS and explore the world of mixed martial arts,” said Mike Tyson. “I follow UFC very closely and it’s going to be very cool to see how I would stack up against these amazing MMA athletes.”
