UFC Fighter Says Mortal Kombat X Stole Her Likeness For New Character

The latest Mortal Kombat game is pretty awesome. It has a ton of diverse characters, including Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees as DLC. It’s also insanely bloody and violent.

But UFC fighter Felice Herrig thinks that one character isn’t that original. Cassie Cage, a brand new character to the series, is a blonde, bubble-gum chewing, selfie taking, ass kicking machine. According to the story, she is the daughter of old school characters Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade and a┬ásergeant serving in the special forces.

Herrig is also a blond bombshell known for posting numerous pictures of herself on social media. She took to Instagram to fan the flames of a conspiracy theory that has the MKX developers stealing her image for the Cassie Cage character.

Alright #MORTALKOMBATX This is no longer a coincidence #cassiecage

Looks pretty close to us! Hopefully Herrig doesn’t try to take any selfies with a bloodied opponent in the Octagon.
