Microsoft's 2014 time is behind us, and now it's publishing giant Electronic Arts' turn. In addition to new games for popular series like Dragon Age and The Sims, EA didn't leave its trademark sports games out in the cold, opening up things with a closer look at the brutal hits of EA Sports UFC.

The presentation opened with the same Bruce Lee intro from mid-May, but was interrupted with some great gameplay footage with Lee late in match against former Lightweight Undisputed Champion and future UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn.

The two trade blocks and jabs, but Penn gets the upper hand when he scoops up Lee and slams him down to the mat. From there, Penn is able to put Lee into a mounted triangle, but only very briefly. You'd think Bruce Lee would be all about striking, but as the footage below shows, his ground game isn't too shabby either, escaping Penn's hold. Once he's back on his feet again, Lee is able to use his trademark lightning quick speed to bounce off the cage and deliver a devastating kick right to Penn's cheek.
