UFC Undisputed 3THQAnderson Silva is just one of 33 fighters in "UFC Undisputed 3's" Pride roster.

From vicious head stomps to soccer kicks upside the dome, there's more to fighting under Pride rules than simply trading the Octagon for a ring.

And that viciousness is captured, not only with brutal imagery in the video game "UFC Undisputed 3," but with a roster that will have Pride fans salivating for the game's February 14 release date.
