ufc-2009-undisputedUFC Undisputed 2009 is the UFC’s first video game in five years and has turned out to be a huge hit for both the UFC as well as struggling game-maker THQ. UFC 2009 Undisputed has been a hit since launching in May, selling about three million copies.

You think EA Sports is kicking itself in the butt after the success of UFC Undisputed 2009? THQ, the game’s developer and publisher, has reported a first-quarter profit of $6.4 million.

THQ President Brian Farrell praised the success of UFC Undisputed 2009 as the reason behind THQ’s recent success.

“We reported the highest June-quarter net sales and net income in our history, driven primarily by the success of our hit title UFC 2009 Undisputed,” Farrell said in a statement. Net sales jumped 77% to $243.5 million, up from $137.6 million.

Ultimate Fighting Championship Clementi vs Johnson

I have a good friend who is in love with Mixed Martial Arts. He introduced me to the sport by watching televised fights. Ah- the power of Pay-Per-View. You can’t help but to be drawn in to the sport with all the blood and brutality. It’s great! What’s even better is seeing how the passionate fans invest in the sport even during a recession.

The L.A. Times reports from Las Vegas that Ultimate Fighting Championship 100 is underway. UFC hits a huge milestone this weekend when they present their 100th fight card. But this Las Vegas-based company does more than just entertain. UFC is a huge cash cow for the city.

Mandalay Bay is sold out this weekend, and the Strip will be buzzing for the summer’s biggest event in Las Vegas.

UFC brings in an estimated $400 million a year to the local economy, making these fights a “fistful of dollars.”

The UFC is one of the fastest growing spectator sports in the world.

“It’s a huge event, as far as the fights are great, people love it, and everybody leaves buzzing after UFC 100,” said UFC President Dana White.

UFC President Dana White expects this to be the fourth Pay-Per-View event in its history to reach 1 million sales. A record number of credentialed reporters are documenting the event.
