The Iceman, who is 40 years old, is said to be washed up, past his prime. Two weekends prior to that event, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, another huge star in American MMA, lost a decision to Rashad Evans. Although he’s only 30, his future is uncertain. All told, it hasn’t been a kind month for legends of the octagon."

Eric Gargiulo presents EA Sports Live Broadcast Comes to EA MMA Game posted at CamelClutchBlog.com, saying, "The hype for EA Sports MMA has been disappointing…until now.
