EA Sports has put out an Xbox 360 demo for its MMA game. Grab it from Xbox Live Marketplace now and it'll be ready for you when you get home.

A PlayStation 3 demo is expected "later today", although that's later tonight for us Brits.

The demo features the Fight Now mode and two weight classes: heavyweight and middleweight. Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem and former professional wrestler Bobby Lashley are your heavyweight playable fighters, and Jiu-Jitsu fighters Jake Shields and Jason "Mayhem" Miller are your middleweights.

The demo's Fight Now mode puts you in the Strikeforce cage at the HP Pavilion and tests you across four different skill levels. There's a tutorial in there, too.

You can unlock "Classic" Randy Couture for the full game by sharing the demo with others.

EA Sports MMA aims squarely at the success THQ has enjoyed with its superb UFC Undisputed franchise. Christian Donlan went hands-on for Eurogamer and returned battered and bruised.

Game is out on 19th October.
