EA Sports has announced that five more Strikeforce fighters have been added to the roster for “EA Sports MMA,” the gaming giant’s debut into the world of mixed martial arts.

It was announced today that “EA Sports MMA” has added TNA/Strikeforce star Bobby Lashley, Nick Diaz, Marius Zaromskis, Joe Riggs and Melvin Manhoef to the game’s lineup.

Nobody can question the talent that the “EA Sports MMA” roster possesses, but with “UFC Undisputed 2010” set for a May 25th release, EA has to be careful they don’t fall too far behind THQ’s highly anticipated sequel.

The game now has 25 fighters on its official roster and they are expecting to add more talent down the line. The company still has not set an official release date.

Here’s the most recent “EA Sports MMA” roster:

Bobby Lashley
Nick Diaz
Marius Zaromskis
Joe Riggs
Melvin Manhoef
Shinya Aoki
Hidehiko Yoshida
