In an interview with Dan Patrick, UFC President Dana White said that the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar center Shaquille O’Neal has been ‘terrorizing’ him for years to fight in the UFC.
Seems like Dana finally gave in to Shaq’s demand. Albeit, not in the ‘real’ world.
In the virtual world of video games, Shaq and his deadly Shaq-urikin has already appeared in Shaq-Fu which was released in 1994 by Sega.
In the newly released UFC Undisputed 2010, O’Neal appears as a secret character that will be unlocked once you enter the proper combination of cheat codes.
No, you don’t need the Konami Code for that.
The codes below needed to be entered in the main menu:
Down, Up, Left, Down, Down, Left, Up, Down, Down, Left, X,Y, X, Start
Down, Up, Left, Down, Down, Left, Up, Down, Down, Left, Square, Triangle, Triangle, Square, Start
Here’s a screen shot of Shaq in the game:
Shaq who has been undergoing MMA training for some time now at Jonathan Burke’s Gracie Gym in Orlando has already challenged Korean giant Hong Man Choi, Chuck Liddell and even current UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.
At 7″1′ and weighs 325 lbs, he will be one the biggest MMA fighters ever. People will surely pay to see him fight.
For now, playing as Shaq in UFC Undisputed 2010 should suffice.If you want to receive my latest posts, please subscribe to my full feed RSS or have them delivered through email. Just enter your email address below and hit the Subscribe button.
