EA Has Finalized UFC 3’s Roster and Fighter Rankings Just Before Launch

Following Saturday’s UFC 220 card, EA Sports has completed the full list of fighter roster ratings reveals for EA Sports UFC 3 just in time for the game to launch at the start of next month. While you can check out the full roster with all of their ratings across all four categories – health, stamina, grappling, and striking. But we’ve got the highlights for you anyhow.

 Georges St-Pierre is returning to the game with high marks across the board, but hits highest in grappling with a rating of 94. Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic just barely edges out title challenger Francis Ngannou with Stamina ratings of 91 and 90, respectively. Ngannou takes the striking advantage with a rating of 93 over Miocic’s rating of 92. Meanwhile, flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson has excellent ratings across the board, with marks of 94 in striking, 93 in grappling, 96 in stamina and 91 in health, as one of the most well-rounded MMA fighters the sport has ever known and that will be reflected in-game.

Cover athlete and Lightweight champ Conor McGregor has one of the highest striking ratings in the game at 95. It remains to be seen if McGregor will come back to defend his belt, but in the meantime players can take advantage of his slick striking in UFC 3. And Women’s Strawweight champion “Thug” Rose Namajunas has respectable ratings of 90 in striking, 92 in grappling, 90 in stamina and 92 in health, but her stats do leave her in a tight space against former champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

And to make things a little bit zany, Bruce Lee is one of the game’s featured fighters despite coming in pretty short in comparison to the other featured fighters with a high of 93 for his striking stat.

EA Sports UFC 3 launches worldwide on February 2, 2018, and players who are part of EA Access can check out a 10-hour trial of the game starting January 25.
