Gracie, Severn, Pulver to Be in PS3 Version of 'UFC Undisputed 2010'
Royce Gracie, Dan Severn and Jens Pulver will be playable characters exclusively for the Playstation 3 version of the UFC Undisputed 2010 video game.
MMA Fighting can also confirm Carlos Condit is a new addition to this year's game, and returning are Martin Kampmann, Demian Maia, Keith Jardine and Nate Marquardt.
Gracie and Severn haven't competed for the UFC in years, but are two of seven members in the UFC Hall of Fame. Pulver, the UFC's first lightweight champion, currently competes under the WEC banner. Last year's game, which didn't feature a legends roster, included the TapouT crew as the only playable characters not under the UFC fighting roster.
Besides the three legends fighters exclusively for the PS3, the console will also have rights to five extra fights for the Ultimate Fights mode. In the Ultimate Fights mode, gamers play to relive memorable UFC fights to unlock a montage of the Utimate Fight. A new feature for the 2010 game is the ability to pull an upset over the winner (For example, play as Maia to beat Marquardt at UFC 102).
The Xbox 360 will have 15 Ultimate Fights, while the PS3 will have a total of 20 with these extra five:

This is stupid. Why do they have to favor one system?
