Update: EA MMA PR Typo

July 29, 2009

Per EA Sports Publicist, Katherine Coulthart:

Please note there was an incorrect statement in today’s earlier EA SPORTS MMA press release about Fedor Emelianenko.  The earlier release stated:


“Fedor Emelianenko, a 6’0”, 231 pound Russian heavyweight mixed martial arts fighter, who excels in Sambo and Judo, holds a 30-1 record and is the current WAMMA Heavyweight champion. Prior to signing on with STRIKEFORCE, Emelianenko defended his WAMMA championship by knocking out former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski.”


This statement is incorrect and Emelianenko has not signed with any MMA fight promotion company as he stated in his press conference this afternoon.  We have no insight as to where Emelianenko will sign and was a misstatement on our part.  The only announcement we are making today is that Fedor Emelianenko, Gegard Mousasi and Renato Sobral will be in our EA SPORT MMA video game.


Thank you and I apologize for any confusion.

Got something to say?
