During Tuesday’s unveiling of the new Xbox One console, fight fans got a first look at EA Sports’ new UFC video game.

The title, which officials said will be available within the next year, replaces THQ’s “UFC Undisputed” franchise, as well as the Strikeforce-heavy “EA Sports MMA” game that the company debuted in 2010.

During Tuesday’s announcement and unveiling, EA Sports grouped together the UFC game with its other signature franchises, including Madden (NFL), NBA Live and FIFA. All of them will use the new Ignite engine.

While UFC footage was limited, one memorable moment (from the WEC nonetheless) was featured: Anthony Pettis‘ off-the-cage “Showtime kick” he landed on Benson Henderson in 2010. Henderson, now the UFC’s lightweight titleholder, took it in stride.

As he wrote on Twitter: “Mwahahaha, love being a video game character, never imagined I would be…gotta take the good w/the bad n the bad w/the good…#Motivation”

With the events of UFC 175, the finale of season 19 of The Ultimate Fighter and UFC Fight Night McGregor vs. Brandao now behind us, it seems a good time to look back upon the sport as it was a decade ago. The year is 2004 and the sport has seen some changes of late. Tito Ortiz is no longer the champion of note at 205, and Randy Couture looks like the second coming of Henry Armstrong, partnered perhaps with James J. Braddock.
