EA Sports has actually revealed its fighter rankings for the new UFC game – and there are some surprises in the list.
Most likely the greatest news is 32- year-old Amanda Nunes taking top area. The reigning women’s bantamweight and featherweight champ has actually dethroned legend Jon Jones for that accolade.
The Lioness likewise pips the game’s cover star – 31- year-old middleweight champ Israel Adesanya.
4 players get a luxury ranking – Nunes, Jones, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Valentina Shevchenko.
Some fans might be a little surprised by some of the fighters ranked a little further down.
For instance, 32- year-old Conor McGregor – who in June revealed his retirement for the * checks keeps in mind * 3rd time in four years after returning to beat Daniel ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in January – just ranks 20 th.
He gets 4.5 stars in general, however we imagine he will not be best pleased with that placement – or his just-less-than-perfect score for striking.
Other surprises consist of 41- year-old Daniel Cormier – the previous two-division world champion – just ranking 16 th. On the other hand, co-cover star Jorge Masdival, 35, who has a record of 35 wins, 14 losses and no draws, goes up to 14 th.
You can’t please everyone and we’re quite sure the argument on this will stay lively and healthy for a long time.
Meanwhile, ideally the video game’s new soundtrack, (which looks outright fire by the way), will be generally appreciated.
