THQ is starting to release the official rosters for UFC Undisputed 3.

While the majority of the major stars in each division are still available, the addition of the bantamweight and featherweight divisions seems to have come at a cost. Several notable fighters in the lightweight and light heavyweight divisions have been omitted, even fighters that appeared in previous games.

Check out who made (and who didn’t make) the lightweight and light heavyweight rosters below.

Light Heavyweight

  • Ryan Bader
  • Jason Brilz
  • Phil Davis (available only via pre-order at select retailers)

  • Matt Hamill
  • Dan Henderson (also available as a middleweight)
  • Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
  • Jon Jones
  • Chuck Liddell
  • Lyoto Machida
  • Vladimir Matyushenko
  • Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
  • Tito Ortiz
  • Mauricio “Shogun” Rua

Some of these I can understand being cut and I’ll assume for now that Kenny Florian, Nate Diaz and Tyson Griffin will be in different weight classes, but Joe Lauzon and Stephan Bonnar? How in the world were they left out?
