Video: Watch Chris Weidman submit Lyoto Machida in EA Sports UFC gameplay demo

Foreshadowing?

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight kingpin Chris Weidman will defend his 185-pound strap against Lyoto Machida inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 24, 2014. And when he does, "All American" will score a single-leg takedown and submit "The Dragon."

Well, at least that's how it plays out in this year's EA Sports UFC video game.

The UFC 173 main event is just several past, present and future mixed martial arts (MMA) fights on display in the new gameplay trailer from the digital publisher, which expects to release the latest installment in the fighting series this spring. While an official date has yet to be revealed, the early footage looks extremely promising.

Now you just have to go out and pick up an Xbox ONE or PlayStation 4.

Sorry, Nintendo.
