Oh come on, is anyone really surprised?
Bruce Lee never fought in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Hell, he never even fought competitively. And yet, he's the most-used fighter in the latest UFC installment from EA Sports.
EA tossed over an infographic showing off some statistics related to the game, but perhaps the most important one is this: Bruce Lee has been selected as the player's fighter of choice 3.41 million times, which is just ahead of Jon "Bones" Jones and Georges St-Pierre, both of whom have been selected 3.4 million times. The interesting part is that Lee isn't accessible unless you either A. pre-ordered the game, or B. finished the Career Mode on hard difficulty, or C. paid to access him ($2 per weight class, $6 to unlock Lee in four weight classes).
This tells me that Lee's popularity remains high, but it also tells me that a lot of people probably paid to unlock him. Guess they just couldn't resist. As for UFC , check out our review if you haven't already; they just need to fix the overly complex control, IMO.
