Introducing Pride mode - coming to a living room near you!

Remember the old days? Remember when there barely seemed like a need for rules? Remember 10-minute rounds and ridiculous fights involving Mirko Cro Cop, Wanderlei Silva, Shogun Rua and Co?

Below ESPN's exclusive roster reveals the 33 fighters that gamers will be able to lead to glory when UFC Undisputed 3 unleashes Pride mode in February. Want to see Royce Gracie v Anderson Silva? What about a match-up between the Rua brothers? Soon Joe Silva's matchmaking job will be yours...

Stay tuned to ESPN for other divisions over the next few days, but feel free to access the featherweights, lightweights, welterweights, middleweights, light-heavyweights and heavyweights now.
