The Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC may be relatively new in different markets, the US included, but there’s denying the fact that it’s steadily gaining ground among sports enthusiasts and serious fans of action-packed entertainment. At the core of the competition is mixed martial arts, and the UFC plays host to some of the world’s best in this emerging genre. Just recently, it was announced that New York City will finally accept and host a fight scheduled during the latter part of the year. But there’s one more reason why MMA and UFC fans should be excited- Funko has recently announced that it will be releasing a set of Pop! vinyl figures inspired by some of the best fighters in the field.
Heading the esteemed list are Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor. Other fighters and characters that are included in this new Funko play set are Anderson Silva, BJ Penn, Jose Aldo and Chris Weidman.
The move of Funko to release UFC-inspired figures will definitely help build up the anticipation for the next planned UFC fights, particularly the fights that will be hosted in New York. According to the buzz, this will also serve as a return fight for Rousey.
Already fired up to pre-order these figures?
