Now that middleweight king Anderson Silva has been announced as the cover boy for “UFC Undisputed 3,” THQ is slowly starting to roll out the fighters available in the video game’s third installment. The light heavyweight roster was recently revealed.
Interestingly enough, although “The Spider” has dabbled in the 205-pound division, Silva is not a playable character in the weight class. Sorry, button mashers. That means the fantasy fight between Jon Jones (Pictured) and Silva can’t even happen in digital form at the moment.
UFC Undisputed 3 is currently in development for the XBox 360 and PlayStation3 consoles. The game is scheduled to hit shelves in January 2012.
Stay tuned for the lineups for the game’s other weight divisions.
Here are the light heavyweights appearing in UFC Undisputed 3:
Antonio “Rogerio” Nogueira
Mauricio “Shogun” Rua
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
* – Available only via pre-order at select retailers
# – Also available as a middleweight fighter
