UFC 4: Conor McGregor Drops as Jon Jones Dethroned from Top Spot

August 6, 2020 10:56 pm

The moment all MMA fans have been waiting for has arrived. EA has revealed the ratings for the top 10 fighters in UFC 4. Some call it a surprising list, whereas others call it apt. If you haven’t had the chance to take a look at the ratings, we have them for you below.

UFC 4 is the next major installment in the franchise. As mentioned many times earlier, the game will focus heavily on the career mode and improved gameplay, this time around. Talking about the gameplay, the game’s new striking system is the star attraction. Tap vs hold mechanic will improve the player experience by a mile while delivering their initiated punches or kicks.

UFC 4 – Top 20 rankings revealed

EA has ranked Amanda Nunes in the No.1 spot. She beat the likes of some of the best in the business to claim the top spot. The current UFC Women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion beat the great Jon Jones for the claim as the best in the game.

Indeed a big achievement for the UFC fighter and this would prompt many to try her out as a character when the game drops. She is also one of the only four fighters to have a 5-star ranking in the game.

Khabib, Valentina Shevchenko, and Henry Cejudo complete the top 5. Cejudo recently retired and seems to be looking for a stint at professional wrestling with promotion AEW having appeared alongside boxing legend Mike Tyson.

For us, the one at rank 20 was rather surprising. UFC legend Conor McGregor sits at that spot. Mcgregor retired in June this year, and it is a bit heartbreaking seeing him placed at 20th, but then again, EA has mostly done justice to its ranking.

Jorge Masvidal rose to the 14th rank, whereas Daniel Cormier is placed at 16th. Cormier will also be one of the commentators in the game this year. That means he takes up Joe Rogan’s spot. Rogan was unwilling to do any voiceovers for games, which in turn made EA approach DC.

The game looks all set to take players in a different dimension. With revamped career mode, gameplay, and a total overhaul, UFC 4 could very well score big.
