Notable UFC fighters not in EA Sports UFC


Once it was revealed that UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw was not going to be featured in the upcoming EA Sports UFC game, it was only a matter of time before mixed martial arts fans began to speculate about other notable fighters being left out from the game.

As previously noted, the game has a small roster limited at 99 fighters. With over 400 fighters on contract with the UFC, there is bound to be some notable omissions.

While the most obvious is the newly minted champ, there are plenty of other “name” fighters that are not available to play once the game comes out on June 17 for next-gen consoles.

For die-hard gamers and UFC fans, we hope that EA Sports will be releasing a bevvy of DLC content loaded with many of the missing fighters listed below.
