Any MMA fans out there who have always wanted to air their grievances with Dana White will now be able to do so in the virtual Octagon.
EA Sports announced Thursday that the UFC president has been added as free downloadable content to the roster of their UFC 3 video game.

“From what EA tells me, the fans have been asking for this for a long time,” White said in an interview with www.GameInformer.com. “They asked me if I would be willing to do it and I said, ‘Yes, I think it’s great.’ It’s fun. And for all the people out there that have wanted to punch me in the face over the last 20 years, this is your chance.”
According to the interview, White will be available to compete in the light heavyweight division. The 48-year-old executive has a background in boxing, but he’s already warning players that if they take his digital avatar down, they could be in for a big surprise.
“As far as the technique goes in the game, they modeled me after a boxer because I have boxing experience,” White said. “But don’t be fooled, I have jiu-jitsu too, so don’t think that you’re going to take me to the ground and beat me up down there. My jiu-jitsu is actually pretty good, so you better be ready on your feet and on the ground.”
Check out White’s rating below.
Dana White “fights” at 205 at UFC 3.
– DW’s striking is better than Daniel Cormier’s
– DW’s grappling is better than Anderson Silva’s
– DW’s stamina is as good as Lyoto Machida’s

Brilliant move. We’re all talking about the game now. https://t.co/7gsHqTikjO
