Two Japanese Fighters Added to EA MMA

The fighter announcements continue to roll out for EA Sports MMA and if the rumor of a September release holds true than these fighter reveals will likely be commonplace over the coming months. With the latest two comes the added element of an additional promotion (DREAM) and the use of a ring rather than a cage.

Shinya Aoki and Hidehiko Yoshida were announced via press conference in Japan yesterday. While they are the first Japanese fighters to be confirmed there should be many more to come. Aoki (22-4) is the DREAM Lightweight Champion while Yoshida (8-7-1) has won just a single fight in the last three years. Both will be competing on a New Years Eve card in Japan.
