The team behind EA Sports MMA has finally lifted the cover off career mode. As you’ll see in the video below, legendary fighters/trainers Bas Rutten, Rickson Gracie, Pat Miletich and Randy Couture will be there to mold you into an elite fighter as you progress throughout you career.

You’ll start off as an amateur fighter learning the basics from Bas. From there, you’ll work your way into fictitious regional and international promotions, and get opportunities to hone your skills in various gyms from around the world including Xtreme Couture and Miletich Fighting Systems. Once you’re ready, you’ll step up against the best Strikeforce has to offer.
