The UFC makes money from a number of other ventures apart from their events. They sell their official merchandise, fight gear, and many more stuff, which also earns a healthy amount of revenue for Dana White and Co. The official EA Sports UFC games are also one such venture that has gained the UFC a lot of riches. The fans have also been quite attracted to them since the launch of the first UFC game in 2014. EA Sports has launched a new version of the game every alternate year since then. However, most UFC gamers were severely disappointed when the promotion failed to launch UFC 5  in the expected year of 2022.

But, recent reports revealed that the fans awaiting it are going to receive the good news pretty soon. Recently, EA Sports released a short 11-second teaser for the highly anticipated UFC 5. It also partially revealed a noted UFC fighter who was probably going to be on the cover of UFC 5. But, even after revealing the only chest and chin portions, the fans found it enough to realize who the fighter actually was. This has made the UFC gamers’ community even more restless about the launch of the game.

As already mentioned the EA Sports authorities have announced Closed Beta registrations for the game. But EA Sports authorities revealed that they are still adding characters and upgrades to the UFC 4 game even at the end of 2022. Hence, a number of fans might have predicted that the launch of UFC 5 won’t happen anytime soon.

But this teaser might have come to them as a major surprise factor. Further, EA Sports authorities also disclosed that the full version of UFC 5 will be revealed in the month of September this year.

The EA Sports authorities are also working to add fighters like Jack Della Maddalena and Erin Blanchfield to the UFC 4 game. Amidst such a situation, a number of fans may appreciate them for their dual-channeled work to develop UFC 5 at the same time.

How to sign-up and register for UFC 5 Closed Beta?

UFC gamers have one more reason to get further excited. EA Sports has also opened its pre-registration page for those who want to check the game out as soon as it releases in September. But only a selected number of players will receive the codes to check out the game just after its release.

So here’s what you’ll need to do in order to get your own signup code for trying out the upcoming UFC 5:

As already mentioned, the recently launched 11-second teaser of UFC 5 showcased one of the UFC athletes partially. The EA Sports authorities refrained from revealing his face. They kept the video limited to revealing his chest, arms, gloves, and also a small part of his chin.

But his arm contained several tattoos and we all might know that tattoos are unique in most cases. These tattoos may be the reason why a number of fans have already worked out that the fighter in the UFC 5 teaser is none other than the UFC Featherweight kingpin, Alexander ‘The Great’ Volkanovski.

However, the facial hair on the exposed part of his chin, and the ears that the video showcased, also caused several fans to say the same. But the EA Sports authorities haven’t confirmed whether the fighter featured in this teaser will also be the poster boy for UFC 5 or not.
