Crave just let us know that the Nintendo GameCube version of 'UFC Throwdown' has gone gold and is currently in manufacturing for retail delivery. The game is expecpted to be on shelves July 30th 2002.
UFC: Throwdown is the first “real fighting” game, for the GameCube that offers the raw, full contact mixed martial arts fighting found in the pay-per-view phenomenon known as Ultimate Fighting Championship. The game features the actual UFC champions and all the real-life mixed martial arts moves they use in the Octagon. UFC: Throwdown has 28 announced fighters, including current light-heavyweight Champ Tito Ortiz. The game also includes four exclusive fighters for the GameCube: Shonie Carter, Ricco Rodriguez, Matt Serra and Dave Menne.

Several game modes will be available in Throwdown: UFC Mode, Arcade Mode, Career Mode, Tournament and Training. In the ultra extensive Career Mode, the player can create and train a fighter. Once created, the fighter can be trained using skill-up challenges and mini-tournaments. As the player works his way up the ranks, he will upgrade his roster of moves and even master new fighting styles. Once he has what it takes to be a UFC fighter, he’ll challenge seasoned UFC veterans for a spot on the UFC Championship card.
