While the chance to be a star in the Octagon was over before it started for an overwhelming majority of people, EA Sports and UFC have combined to at least give you a taste of what life could have been like in a three or five-round contest. This past week marked the release of EA Sports UFC, the latest video game to capture what fighting is like in the world of mixed martial arts and more specifically the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The game follows the UFC Undisputed series of games that were produced by THQ and EA Sports MMA, a non-UFC mixed martial arts game released by Electronic Arts in 2010. Though, according to EA Sports UFC Creative Director Brian Hayes, this game is an entirely new product. “We designed, coded and created this game from scratch,” Hayes told TSN.ca Prior to the creation of the game and due to the schedule of the development, fighters were not consulted on their attributes which, as it has in other sports video games, could lead to disagreements down the road. Hayes has his bases covered though when it comes to where he and his team got the final numbers for most of the competitors in the game. “I expect there to be lots of feedback from fighters on what their ratings are, but thankfully we got a lot of those numbers directly from UFC matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby.” One non-UFC name you will find in the game is martial arts and action star Bruce Lee who was added to the game as a bonus for those who purchased early or complete certain goals in the game. Hayes says the feedback to Lee being in the game has been positive. “Its been a fairly popular decision, a lot of people think its really cool.” UFC president Dana White told Fortune.com that video games are an important tool for introducing people to the sport. “You wouldnt believe how many fans have come up to me and said that how they got into the UFC was either through The Ultimate Fighter TV show or by playing the UFC video games. They get to learn who the fighters are. Its been very instrumental in educating.” UFC fighters have also been posting their early impressions and reactions to the game on twitter: Miesha Tate (@MieshaTate) So cool to be in a video game! Cant believe how realistic it is, crazy! Scott Jorgensen (@Scottjorgensen) SOOO pumped @EASPORTSUFC #FeelTheFight In Stores Now and Im taking challenges from you all.

... maybe even more than that. Maybe all season I have to take a few blows.SEATTLE -- After just 2 1/2 quarters, Russell Wilson traded his helmet for a baseball cap. Earl Thomas turned his attention to the NFL scoreboard and took note that the rest of the NFC West lost. The Seattle Seahawks domination of Jacksonville went as everyone expected. "I was fired up we played just the way we should," Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. "A lot of people expected and asked questions about letdowns and all that type of stuff, and we didnt see it that way at all." Wilson matched his career high with four touchdown passes -- two each to Sidney Rice and Zach Miller -- and the Seahawks overwhelmed the Jaguars 45-17 on Sunday. Seattle improved to 3-0 for the first time since 2006, beginning a stretch of four straight games against the AFC South. The Seahawks came in as 19-point favourites and never gave Jacksonville (0-3) a chance. Wilson connected with Miller twice in the first 16 minutes on TDs of 1 and 4 yards. He hit Rice for an 11-yard TD late in the first half and found him again on a 23-yarder early in the third quarter. Wilson checked out with 3:54 left in the third and finished 14 of 21 for 202 yards. The four TD passes matched his performance last December in a win over San Francisco. The blowout allowed Seattle the chance to test its depth with some of its younger reserves getting their first shot at the regular season. Seattles offence finally showed the potency that made the Seahawks so dangerous at the end of 2012. It was a focus for Carroll this week to clean up the offence. "We stayed away from the dumb mental mistakes, the dumb penalties and we made the most of our opportunities through the air," Seattles Doug Baldwin said. Wilson wasnt perfect. He was sacked by Johnathan Cyprien and fumbled in the first half and made the mistake of throwing across his body and was intercepted at his 11 in the third quarter. But it was a far better performance overall by Seattles offence than in the first two weeks. No drive was better than the final possession of the first half. Linebacker Bobby Wagner had just made a juggling, diving interception at his own 21 with 44 seconds left in the half, and the Seahawks got aggressive. Wilson found Golden Tate twice, hit Rice for 233 yards, and scrambled for another 10.dddddddddddd Wilson then capped the half with a dart to Rice for an 11-yard TD, finishing off a drive that covered 79 yards in just 34 seconds and gave Seattle a 24-0 halftime lead. "That was the biggest drive weve had all season, so far," Wilson said. "Thats the thing, we have to be able to do that. ... To be able to do that and score in 34 seconds, that crucial." Carroll said he was aggressive because of the job Seattles defence was doing, a unit that got healthier with the return of defensive end Chris Clemons and cornerback Brandon Browner. Clemons played for the first time since sustaining a major knee injury in the playoffs. "The biggest thing was just trusting in my work, trusting in the rehab and everything Ive been doing, so I felt pretty good about it," Clemons said. The Seahawks forced Jacksonville into three turnovers. They sacked Jacksonville Chad Henne four times, and Maurice Jones-Drew, playing with an injured ankle, was limited to 43 yards on 19 carries. Jacksonville spent the first quarter in negative total yardage and didnt crack the 100-yard mark until 8:30 left in the third quarter. The Jaguars found the end zone for the second time this season when Jones-Drew scored on a 2-yard run. "It was tough to move the ball early. Their defensive line did a good job, their front seven," Henne said. Millers first TD came when Wilson duped the entire stadium with a perfect play-action fake for the 1-yard TD. Wilson found Miller early in the second quarter when he pirouetted away from the pass rush for a 14-0 lead. Wilsons final TD came early in the second half when he lofted a pass into the end zone, and Rice cut in front of a defender to haul in the TD. Baldwin also made a diving, one-handed 35-yard touchdown catch from Tarvaris Jackson after Wilson departed. Jackson also had a 5-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. Notes: Seattle DE Red Bryant left in the second half with back spasms. WR Jermaine Kearse sprained an ankle in the first half. ... Jacksonville fell to 2-9 on the West Coast. ... Jackson was 7 of 8 for 129 yards and a TD. ... Jacksonvilles Jordan Todman scored his first career TD in the fourth quarter.
