There will be a mystery fighter in EA Sports UFC

Earlier today FanSided revealed a rumor that the highly anticipated EA Sports UFC game may finally have a release date. With a ‘big announcement’ coming next week, many speculated that the release date may in fact be the announcement.

In a recent tweet from EA Sports UFC, however, they may have hinted as to what the announcement may be:

Apparently there will be a mystery character that is playable in the upcoming next-gen game. The first of six clues is that this fighter never competed inside the UFC’s Octagon.

Over the next week, EA Sports will reveal one clue before they officially reveal who the mystery character is on April 6th.

If you recall, NBA Basketball legend Shaquille O’neal was a playable character in the UFC Undisputed 2010. Could the EA developers go in a similar route, or is the mystery character a famous boxer like Mike Tyson or Muhammad Ali? What about martial arts legend Bruce Lee, or Pride legend Fedor Emelianenko?

Who do you think will be the mystery character in EA Sports UFC? Sound off in the comments below, and FanSided will keep you updated on the clues throughout the week.
