MMA fighter Uriah Hall learned his skills from Tekken

Uriah Hall, a MMA fighter that you might be familiar with, has been a standout during the current season of The Ultimate Fighter, not only holding his own, but outright knocking out two famous fighters in convincing fashion. Talking about his success, Hall mentions that he learned fighting by playing loads of Tekken and trying to copy the moves from the game.

“I walked in and they were impressed with my kicks and the way I would just pick up stuff and they were like, ‘where did you train?’” Hall says, in a interview with Fightland, Vice's new MMA section. “I said, ‘I never trained before’. I was embarrassed to say that I played Tekken all day, copied the moves and that’s how I learned. I would play that video game so much. I’d go into practice mode and have the characters… the computer spar me back and forth like regular training. I’d just keep playing until I see something… visually it was almost as if my body just adjusted to it so when it came time to spar moves that I would see would come back like that!"

Hit the jump to hear more about what Hall himself has to say about how Tekken influenced his fighting.

Koichi Hirose and Akira Otoishi revealed for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle

The latest issue of V-Jump brings new characters for the upcoming fighter JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle.

All we can provide right now is a somewhat low-quality photo of the page, but fans should be able to discern that the newcomers are Koichi Hirose and Akira Otoishi, both from the poorly-named "Diamond is Not Crash", the fourth part of the long-running manga.

Both come equipped with their stands from the series, with Koichi using "Echoes", a sound-based stand that allows him to manipulate sounds around him to replicate the event that caused the sound. Akira Otoishi, a secondary villain in Part 4, uses "Red Hot Chili Pepper", a Stand with electricity-based powers, that can travel through wires and be controlled from a long distance.

This is the first appearance in a game for both characters, since the last JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fighting game, which was released in arcades during 1998, focused mainly on the most popular arc in the series, Part 3: "Stardust Crusaders".

We look forward to trying both of these new characters out once the game launches in Japan on August 29th of this year. No official word on an international release as of yet.

Enabling traditional fighting game inputs in Injustice: Gods Among Us PS3 demo

To help gamers that are coming from other fighting game franchises, NetherRealm Studios added an additional style of inputs for Injustice: Gods Among Us. These are based on the traditional inputs of many different games with quarter circles and half circles.

Below is the full details on how to activate.

- Hit Triangle to bring up the Options Menu during character select
- Hit X on the "BUG_ME 1" option
- Hit Up three times
- Hit Right once
- Hit Down once
- Hit X once

It will then ask if you want to overwrite your current settings, hit X to accept or Circle to exit.

Below are some screenshots showing the two different styled inputs for all three characters in the demo.
