With last Saturday’s win over Dustin Jacoby, light heavyweight Khalil Rountree Jr extended his winning streak and has now three straight victories in the octagon.

However, after the fight he declared that he won’t compete in the UFC until he’s been added as a character in the “EA Sports: UFC 4” video game.

“Don’t call me,” Rountree said at the post-fight press conference. “Dana White, Hunter , Mick – don’t call me until I’m in the game. Don’t ask me who I want to fight next or when I want to fight next. Put me in the game. Call them. Make a call. Tell EA Sports, ‘Dude, this guy has been in the UFC seven years. Get him in the game.’ That’s all I ask, and then we can start talking about what’s next and who’s next.”
