Three new screens of EA Sports MMA show Bobby Lashley - fighting tonight at Strikeforce Miami - is another fighter signed to the title. In another development, EA Sports' web site will stream one of tonight's bouts live, for free.
The live stream starts at 9pm US Eastern time (1pm AEDT) and will feature Joe "Diesel" Riggs versus Jay "The Thoroughbred" Hieron in a welterweight tilt. You can see it on the EA Sports MMA web site. The stream will precede the live telecast of the event's main fight card on Showtime. That begins at 10pm Eastern (2pm AEDT), and will be delayed to 10pm for viewers in the Pacific time zone.
Strikeforce is an MMA circuit lesser known than the UFC, which appears in THQ's Undisputed line of games. But it will be a featured league in EA Sports MMA, whose release date has yet to be announced. Both EA Sports and Strikeforce are trying to establish a greater visibility for Strikeforce to boost both the game and the league.
