Supremacy MMA505 GamesFelice Herrig and Michele Gutierrez are the first female fighters to be featured in an MMA video game.

Looking to differentiate itself from the competition, Kung Fu Factory's "Supremacy MMA" will be the first mixed-martial arts video game to feature female fighters.

According to the press release, Felice "Lil Dog" Herrig and Michele "Diablita" Gutierrez will both appear in the hard-hitting, and often times brutal game that features underground, unsanctioned, and unlicensed fights complete with illegal finishing moves that focus on choking out opponents and breaking bones.

Definitely not a game for the squeamish, but from the sounds of it, Herrig and Gutierrez are ready to show the world that they have what it takes to compete in the underground head banging.

Says Herrig: "Being one of the first women to represent MMA in a videogame is a dream come true for me. This is our chance to finally show gamers that female fighters can hold their own."

Look for "Supremacy MMA" to hit stores in June for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
