This new UFC Undisputed 2010 trailer may focus its attentions more on the rise to prominence of current Welterwight champ, B.J. Penn over pure gameplay footage, but we can’t help but feel excited.

THQ has released a party-sized haul of screens for the upcoming UFC Undisputed
3, and the game's attention to detail is apparent in every one of the new
glimpses. Fighters drip sweat, bruise and bloody each others' pretty faces, and
grimace at the receipt of a particularly palpable blow. Yes, that's real pain
these digitized brawlers are feeling: this isn't professional wrestling,
During a recent hands-on with THQ’s upcoming UFC Undisputed
3, the developers talked a little bit about how the game’s menus have been
entirely redesigned. Instead of having the menu icons appear over generic

a number of different backgrounds, THQ says that it plans to offer additional
image packs after launch, which will be made available as downloadable content...
Fans of professional man-hugging and
jaw-dislocating now have one more way to deal out the pain in THQ's

players who do a little legwork on Facebook...
