“UFC Undisputed 3,″ you’ve got some competition coming your way. Bellator Fighting Championships has announced “Bellator: MMA Onslaught” will be available for download this summer. The mixed martial arts fighting video game was developed by Kung Fu Factory and published by 345 Games in association with Spike TV.

“Bellator has a roster of many of the world’s most exciting fighters, and we are thrilled to work with 345 Games to let fans experience our organization in a whole new way,” said Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney. “Instead of just watching Michael Chandler’s (Pictured) incredible takedowns or Patricky Pitbull’s devastating knockout power, fans can now get in the cage with ‘Bellator: MMA Onslaught’ and either fight with or against Bellator’s finest.”

This marks the first-ever MMA arcade-style game available on Microsoft Xbox Live Arcade and Sony PlayStation Network.

In “Bellator: MMA Onslaught,” gamers can customize their own fighter’s look and fighting style to battle the way they want, whether it be Muay Thai, Brazilian jiu jitsu, kickboxing, etc. The game also shares tips directly from Bellator fighters through exclusive video content as players continue to level-up and gain experience points, allowing them to learn MMA skills in a fun and engaging way.

Bellator collaborated with 345 Games to ensure the arcade-style gaming experience mirrors the organization’s format, styles, graphics and music. As the single-elimination championships league continues to grow, 345 Games will support and update the game with new moves and styles, weight classes, fighter selections and additional content.
