UFC Undisputed 3 simulates the upcoming Evans vs. Davis fight

ufc undisputed 3 simulates the upcoming evans vs davis fightIf you follow UFC, then you are probably already aware that his Saturday at 8pm EST, Light Heavyweights “Suga” Rashad Evans (16-1) and Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis (9-0) will face each other in the main bout on Fox . If Davis wins, he will earn the title of number one contender. If Evans wins, he will face the champ, Anderson Silva, in a Brazilian soccer stadium in what will be one of the most hyped fights in recent years. The stakes are high.

And if you are a fan of the sport, then odds are you also already know about the upcoming UFC Undisputed 3, which will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 14. The game features some of the most in-depth information on UFC fighters available anywhere, plus an AI that can mimic real life fighters. So imagine that you are one of the developers from Yuke’s just sitting around, relaxing, checking out the upcoming UFC news. How could you not fire it up and simulate the upcoming fight?

It is actually somewhat common for a sports game that prides itself on realism to simulate the big games. EA does it all the time, especially for the Super Bowl. Of course, last year Madden predicted that it the Steelers were going to beat the Packers, and that didn’t turn out so well. But Madden is still six for eight in picking a winner, so there’s something to be said for it.

In the game, the stats have Evans at 89 overall, while it has Jones just a point away at 88. To pick a winner, the game ran through 25 simulations, all controlled by the AI. Throughout the matches, several patterns continued to emerge for both fighters, and there was a consistent trend.

There was a fair amount of back and forth, and both Davis and Evans had their fair share of wins. In the end though, Yuke’s and THQ foresee that Rashad Evans will be the winner, and in 28-percent of the matches, Evans won by knockout.

Check out the entire rundown in the video below, then see how accurate the AI is this Saturday night when the real Evans and Davis go head-to-head.
