EA announced today that Strikeforce, a mixed martial arts fight promotion, will be featured as a premier league in the MMA game.

In addition, Brett Rogers and Jake Shields have joined the roster of fighters with already announced Jason “Mayhem” Miller and Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal.

The game will also feature the commentary of Frank Shamrock and Mauro Ranallo, as well as ring announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr. and all will be incorporated into the game with referee “Big John” McCarthy presiding over the in-ring action.

“We are very excited to be working with Strikeforce, and feature them as a premier league in our game,” said executive producer Dale Jackson. “They have a wealth of mixed martial arts expertise, put on great shows and have a great stable of top-notch fighters.

“Together we look forward to growing the sport and delivering an immersive interactive gaming experience.”

Game’s out on PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2010.
