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”
