Revealing the third mystery pre-order fighter, EA Sports announced today that Mike Tyson will be a playable character in EA Sports UFC 2 when it launches on March 15 in North America and March 17 in Europe for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

By pre-ordering the standard edition of EA Sports UFC 2, you’ll receive instant access to the Iron Mike Tyson version, while those who buy the Deluxe Edition get both Iron Mike Tyson and Legacy Mike Tyson. Everyone else can unlock both versions in-game by making it to the Hall of Fame in Career Mode. 

“The former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world packs the strongest punching power of any fighter in the game and will fight across two different weight classes: light heavyweight and heavyweight,” EA says. “Two versions of Tyson are coming to the game: ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson based on his climb to stardom and string of invincible fights in the eighties; and ‘Legacy’ Mike Tyson, developed with the end of his illustrious career in mind.”

Tyson talked about his inclusion:

As a huge fan, I’m honored to be part of EA Sports and explore the world of mixed martial arts. I follow UFC very closely and it’s going to be very cool to see how I would stack up against these amazing MMA athletes.
