Now With The WWE, A Competitor, UFC EA Considering Removing Ronda From New Video Game

In a new report from, an official EA Games representative confirmed that Ronda Rousey could be removed from EA UFC 3 in an update patch.

Because the WWE will no hold the licensing rights to Ronda Rousey, this poses a business problem for the UFC and EA video game franchise.

Here’s the report:

Ronda Rousey made waves again last night when she showed up at the WWE Royal Rumble. She made her way to the ring after the first ever women’s Royal Rumble Match and, while eyeing the other competitors in the ring, pointed at the Wrestlemania sign. After the event, it was confirmed that she had signed a deal with WWE.

This has led to some worrying how it will affect her appearance in the new EA Sports UFC 3, which is set to release on February 2nd. A representative from EA Sports spoke to Game Informer earlier today and stated she would be in the game “for the time being.” That may mean she could possibly be removed from the game with a patch at some point in the future.

The reason her signing with WWE could cause an issue with her being in EA Sports UFC 3 is due to licensing.

Most times when a superstar signs with WWE, the company owns the licensing rights to that superstar while they are under contract. This means they can’t be featured on another company’s merchandise.
