Martial Arts legend Bruce Lee will be available in EA Sports UFC and will be playable from flyweight up to lightweight.

After a week of releasing clues and teasing a 'mystery fighter', EA Sports officially announced that Bruce Lee will be a playable character in the upcoming UFC game. Check out an in-game photo of him as seen from EA's promotional materials:

Unlike most fighters who will only be useable in 1-2 divisions, the movie star and martial arts legend's digital reincarnation will be available in 4 weight divisions from 125 lbs up to 155 lbs. You can unlock the character in two ways, you either pre-order the game and get him from the start, or you can complete career mode at 'pro difficulty' or higher.
