EA Sports UFC 2's next fighter is ... its announcer?

Joe Rogan will describe his own ass-beating in the latest update

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Well, here's something new: The next fighter in EA Sports UFC 2 is the announcer who calls its action.

That means that Joe Rogan will talk about himself kicking ass or getting his ass kicked, making him the second sports video game commentator to do so in the past year. Steve Kerr was in the virtual booth of NBA 2K15 while also appearing on the sideline in his rookie year as the coach of the Golden State Warriors. (Kerr was replaced by Greg Anthony in NBA 2K16.)

Here's Rogan in action, via YouTuber Z3E3E3.

To fight with Rogan, UFC 2 players must download the latest title update and then enter the Konami code at the game's main screen (that is, the one where the only other command is to press the options/meny button to continue to the game).

The code on PlayStation 4 is Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Circle, X and Options; and on Xbox One, Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A and Menu.

Two other like, you know, actual fighters also join the roster for free in this update; they are Jessica Aguilar and Sage Northcutt. EA Sports UFC 2 has more than 250 fighters on its roster.
