UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is the latest addition to the EA Sports UFC roster, which comes as no surprise considering he is one of the top athletes in the sport today. On Tuesday, EA Sports released two screen shots of Velasquez in the game, which may be their most impressive to date.
An additional screen shot of Velasquez in the game is available below that show the eerie similarities to his real-life counterpart, along with information from the EA Sports press release:

Rapidly making a case for himself as the most dominant Heavyweight to ever step inside the Octagon, “The Baddest Man on the Planet”, Cain Velasquez doesn’t look to be letting go of his title anytime soon. An outstanding wrestler who can also throw leather with best in the world, Velasquez sets himself apart from his opponents thanks to a seemingly bottomless gas tank that allows him to push the pace and overwhelm the opposition far into the championship rounds. Since reclaiming the belt from Junior Dos Santos and avenging the only loss of his career at the end of 2012, Velasquez has been unstoppable in each of his ensuing appearances.
The detail in Velasquez’s tattoos and just everything about his in-game character is stunning.
If you weren’t excited about the game’s release before, this should do the trick. We simply cannot wait until the Spring 2014 release.
