EA Sports UFC has been busy revealing in game photos of fighters that will be available once the game is released. Today, EA Sports released two more fighters from the UFC’s biggest and smallest weight classes. MMA Heavyweight legend, Minotauro Nogueira, gets the EA Sports treatment in the picture below:

Along with the photo, they added in a short blurb regarding Nogueira’s historic career:

Truly one of MMA’s living legends, Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira has the distinction of being the only fighter in history to have won both the UFC and PRIDE Heavyweight belts. Throughout his storied career, Minotauro has racked up wins over the top talent in his division while earning himself a reputation as a fan favorite thanks to incredible displays of toughness and amazing comeback victories.

Here is the short bio that EA Sports included with the reveal:

When looking at the UFC’s Flyweight division, the first name that should come to mind is Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. Not only is the Kentucky native widely recognized as one of the quickest fighters on the planet, but after becoming the division’s inaugural champion in 2012, the belt has never left his waist. Currently on a six-fight undefeated streak, Mighty Mouse defended his title three times in 2013, and seems to only be improving with every bout.

Fansided will continue to update you with fighter reveals over the coming months before the game’s release.
