EA Sports’ top fighters: Jones, Nunes, Khabib, & Shevchenko

EA Sports has the market on lock when it comes to sports video game simulations. Whether it’s Madden, FIFA, or NBA Live, fans of the world’s most popular athletic contests are usually going to be picking up an EA title if they want to do some gaming as their favorite stars. That even goes for MMA, with the developers set to release their 4th entry in their UFC series this month.

The upcoming mixed martial arts combat title is set for release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 14th. And before the new game drops, the company has been teasing out the fighters available to fans and what their in-game rankings will be. While they’ve gone all the way down through their top 50, here’s a look at the final few fighters that will make up the game’s most elite.

Given EA’s dominant share of the sports gaming world, it’s always interesting to see how they’ve ranked athletes, what skills they’ve given them, and what the thought process might be behind how they rate talent. While the top 10 is largely comprised of the UFC champs, notably missing are Alexander Volkanovski (coming in at #12), bantamweight champ Petr Yan (down at #19), and newly crowned flyweight champ Deiveson Figureiredo (way down at #21). It should be noted, however, that all fighters ranked from #5 down to #43 were given a 4.5 star overall rating.
