Celebrating Greatness with Three All-New Alter Egos

On April 13 in Las Vegas, UFC 300 arrives with two gigantic title fights and a battle for the BMF belt! To celebrate we’ve reached back into the history of the UFC and are introducing three all-new Alter Egos that hero former UFC Champions.

Starting today players can download the following Alter Egos:

  • 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.

UFC 5 – UFC 300 Fight Week Challenges:

UFC 300 Fight Week brings us a new set of Fight Week Challenges for UFC 5. Players who complete these challenges can unlock various rewards including Chris Weidman’s Alter Ego and “Suga” Sean O’Malley’s Alter Ego from UFC 299.

30+ Fighters Coming to UFC 5

Also, in case you missed it, last week we announced the most substantial post-launch roster expansion in EA SPORTS UFC history.

Between April and June, we will introduce over 30 additional fighters to EA SPORTS UFC 5 and reach 98% parity with the current UFC Top 10 Athlete Rankings, helping make good on a commitment we made to you back in November to increase the fighter roster in the game. We also updated gameplay based on community feedback, including stamina, re-balancing strike types, grappling and ground games, and more.
