UFC Undisputed 3, the latest entry into the popular mixed martial arts video game series from THQ, will hit store shelves in January 2012, the promotion announced today.

So, what can gamers expect in this new edition?

For starters, players can now travel back in time and fight in the now-defunct PRIDE organization. Yes, that means soccer kicks, knees to a downed opponent and even commentary from Bas Rutten and Stephen Quadros.

PRIDE never die!

In addition, UFC Undisputed 3 will offer two new weight classes as well as an expanded roster for next year's release, which will be available for the Sony PlayStation 3 and MIcrosoft's Xbox 360.

The official press release has more:

Players will also experience the excitement of a live UFC event through significant visual improvements, including the introduction of much-anticipated fighter entrances, new camera positions, improved facial animations and a gritty, high contrast appearance. They will enter into battle with an unparalleled choice of more than 150 playable UFC fighters, including talent from the newly added featherweight and bantamweight divisions. Rounding out the virtual UFC experience with a significantly revamped online experience, as well as a variety of new and returning gameplay modes, UFC Undisputed 3 lets players have their fights - their way - to deliver the most intense, competitive and engaging experience to date for the franchise.

Let's hear it Maniacs -- are you excited about UFC Undisputed 3? Is it worth buying for the PRIDE rules alone? What changes are you most looking forward to from the previous two entries?
