EA signs Emelianenko for MMA game

The Russian golden goose UFC can't snag.

EA Sports has finally announced star fighters for MMA, despite UFC boss Dana White threatening to ban any athlete signing for the game.

Russian behemoth Fedor Emelianenko will be the cover star. He is considered not only the best fighter around today, but also perhaps the greatest of all time. He's the World MMA heavyweight champ and the last holder of the Pride belt, which we're assuming has nothing to do with Gay Pride.

Joining Emelianenko are renowned Dutch kickboxer Gegard Mousasia and lightweight aggressive grappler Renato Sobral, who comes from Brazil.

EA will reveal more Mixed Martial Arts fighters as the PS3 and 360 game approaches its 2010 release.
