A step in the right direction for female MMA as the upcoming video game title ‘Supremacy MMA’ will be adding female fighters to the roster. Felice “Lil Bulldog” Herrig and Michele “Diablita” Gutierrez will bring their likenesses and their fighting styles to Supremacy MMA, a piece of history that Herrig is quite proud of.
“Being one of the first women to represent MMA in a videogame is a dream come true for me said Herrig. This is our chance to finally show gamers that female fighters can hold their own.”
Gutierrez also shared the same sediment.
“Joining the roster of fighters for Supremacy MMA is definitely awesome. The game takes a totally different approach to MMA so I think it’s perfect that this is the game that features women for the first time.”
“Bringing playable female fighters to fans in Supremacy MMA represents the strong stance we’re taking in bringing a totally unique game to market,” said Peter Matiss, VP of marketing, 505 Games. “Michele and Felice fight with the same ferocity and heart as any other fighter, regardless of gender, and we are proud to represent these strong, determined women in our game.”
Supremacy MMA is scheduled to hit stores June 2011 on Xbox 360 and PS3.
