A promo for the upcoming mixed martial arts event UFC 102, which features Randy Couture in a title fight, has revealed some of the first official footage from Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming film, The Expendables. The clip looks at the upcoming fight between Couture (who stars alongside Stallone, Jason Statham and Jet Li in the film) and Antonio Nogueira, mixing in some shots from the film with interview footage.

Sadly, the video doesn’t show us much beyond Randy Couture on set and a few of his action shots from the film. Which makes sense, as this is clearly just a cross-promotional piece that will help hype the film while promoting the UFC event (and subsequently, selling tons of pay-per-view subscriptions). What we do see in the footage is a few looks at other cast members who have been absent thus far, including Jet Li. The clips also nods at what we already know about The Expendables, in that it will be packed with action. I’m not ready to make any conclusions based on this small, poor quality assortment of footage. However, I’m still very interested in seeing more from The Expendables. Hopefully we’ll have a trailer soon.

The Expendables is in theaters April 23, 2010. Check out the small amount of footage in the UFC promo below.
