UFC President Approves of Chuck Norris, Mitsuyo Maeda for Next Game
Trinity, Genghis Khan and Kareem Abdul Jabbar are out though.
In a rather humorous TSN segment, UFC President Dana White weighed on what other guest characters he would have in the next UFC game. This comes off of the inclusion of Bruce Lee in EA Sports UFC, which White had a very strong role in bringing to the game despite the fact that Lee never fought in the Octagon. Then again, Lee is the so-called “father of MMA” so it made sense.
That’s why White would also be okay with including Chuck Norris, who is also a significant figure in the world of martial arts (though his life may have been better defined by a bunch of useless jokes). What is White not okay with? Take your pick because Trinity from the Matrix, Kareem Abdul Jabbar (a basketball player) and Genghis Khan are out.
However, White is okay with Hercules played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and judo artist Mitsuyo Maeda. This shouldn’t be a confirmation for either appearing in the next EA Sports UFC title but if White has his way, you never know.
