EA Sports UFC has had mixed reactions since its release in June, but there's no doubt it's the beginning of a franchise and folks are already wondering what's next. This time round the game launched with Bruce Lee as a surprise inclusion. Who's next? Chuck Norris? Well, UFC President Dana White thinks that might be a good idea!
In a recent interview Dana White was given a handful of names and asked whether or not he would add them to the next version of the game. Most of the suggestions were completely vetoed, but when the interviewer mentioned Chuck Norris?
"Absolutely," he replied.
Played out jokes aside, Chuck Norris is actually a mixed martial artist. He has black belts in Taekwondo, Chun Kuk Do, Tang Soo Do, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo. That is a metric shit tonne of black belts in anyone's language and some of those are 8th and 9th degree black belts. Let's put it this way: if there was a UFC for people over the age of 70, Chuck Norris would have a great chance of being the champion.
In a lot of ways, Chuck Norris has way more right to be in the game compared to Bruce Lee, having actual competitive experience in Martial Arts and actually briefly creating and running an MMA organisation.
I actually really hope this happens, and it's a real possibility. Dana White played a huge part in putting Bruce Lee in EA Sports UFC and if he wants Chuck Norris in the game, he'll most like be in the game.
