But that's not all! EA has also announced the addition of 3 new fighters to the game -

  • Robert Whittaker (MW) from UFC 225:
    • After a close and contentious battle for the interim UFC Middleweight Championship between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker, the pair would throw down once more with Whittaker taking the split decision, shutting down the thoughts of a trilogy and proving once again that you should fear The Reaper.
  • Max Holloway (FW) from UFC 231:
    • Max “Blessed” Holloway battered Brian Ortega from bell to bell throughout four rounds only pausing to show T-City some boxing techniques mid-fight and then getting a doctor’s stoppage to extend his win streak to thirteen.
  • Chris Weidman (MW) from UFC 187:
    • From dethroning and defending against divisional GOAT Anderson Silva, solving the dangerous riddle of Lyoto Machida, and culminating with a first-round finish of the always dangerous Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort at UFC 187 — “The All-American” has worked for every title he has had wrapped around his waist in the Octagon.

And the excitement doesn't stop there. EA has revealed that players can expect a total of 30 new fighters to be added to the game from this month through June. That's right, 30 new fighters to choose from, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. Stay tuned for more updates and get ready to expand your roster with some fresh faces!

With all these new additions and updates, EA UFC 5 is shaping up to be one of the best MMA games on the market. So grab your controller, step into the Octagon, and show the world what you're made of!
