Earlier this week the first gameplay footage of EA Sports UFC arrived and the company followed up on that with additional information including the entire roster. There are 99 fighters split between 9 divisions. That’s more fighters than THQ’s first attempt at UFC in 2009 but less than they included in the 2010 sequel and Undisputed 3. Keep in mind that those games also had fewer divisions meaning greater depth in those present and other creations like separate Pride versions in the final edition of the franchise before THQ went under.

Though most are a given considering the licensing there are some notable individuals not included. Topping the list are Josh Barnett, Stipe Miocic, Anthony Johnson, Tim Kennedy, Tyron Woodley, Raphael Assuncao, T.J. Dillashaw, and Ali Bagautinov – all of which are ranked in the top half of their respective divisions. Expect many of them, and others, to be offered as DLC later.

Continue on for the full list of fighters – who are listed in order of their current ranking in the divisions with those unranked or inactive placed at the bottom of each – and leave any thoughts on the inclusions and omissions in the comments!

  • Ryan Perry

    That’s a really soft roster. Especially with no fighter share. Unless they make a significant effort to continually add fighters, this game may not have much re-play value. So far that’s my only real concern. Everything else looks great.

    • http://pastapadre.com/ pastapadre

      Good point about there being no fighter share too.

  • nor cal voodoo

    a soft roster? are you high.. do you even watch ufc? theirs tons of replay value here, so theirs no fighter share boo who, last time i checked you wanted to see and play with ufc fighters not make believe guys. so you get some buddy’s together and play pass the knowledge and kick each others ass until your the last man standing, thats what these games are for. something to pick up time to time and play.

    • adam

      I could make a better roster with past UFC fighters. Fedor,Randy Coutor, Tito Ortiz, Ken Shamrock, Frank Shamrock, Cro-Cop, Bas Rutten, All are past UFC champions during UFC’s most popular period.

      • nor cal voodoo

        well yeah if you go that rout then any game could be better with legends in it, but if were talking current roster and current game, this isn’t bad, its not missing any major fighter that’s crucial to the game working. it’s replay value is just as high with the current roster as it would be with legends in it. and whos to say they wont add some later if the game takes off

      • Brandon Cox

        Fedor(my fav fighter) never was in ufc n cro-cop never had a ufc belt. Plz stop talking.

        • steve

          No Brock Lesnar FFFFFFFFFF

        • adam

          2006 Pride World Grand Prix Open-Weight Champion cro-cop that makes you a ufc champion same organization Plz stop taking.

      • Michael Gates

        Fedor (for sure) and CroCop (I believe) were never UFC Champions. I don’t think Fedor ever even fought in the UFC, man.

        • adam

          His rights are owned by UFC now through Strikeforce and Pride remember UFC Undisputed had Pride fighters in it.

    • tougie

      I guess you don’t realize that most people use fighter share to add real fighters to their game?

  • David Duecer

    Has this been confirmed by EA? Their roster blog doesn’t have a lot of these guys and you failed to source yourself as to where you got this list.

    • http://pastapadre.com/ pastapadre

      They didn’t release screenshots for everyone on the roster. I got the list sent to me. I believe others sites may have gotten the same info as well.

  • Michael Gates

    They covered most of the big names. A little surprised that guys like Woodley, Kennedy and Barnett aren’t there because they were in the previous EA game, but I guess EA has to make money off of DLC in SOME way, right? Also disappointed not to see Brock Lesnar there. That would be fun. Would have also been stoked to see Randy Couture there.

    • Pasta really

      Leaner is signed with WWE and Couture has a beef with Dana so there’s no way the UFC and EA could get that license without spending way too much money.

      • Michael Gates

        Yeah with Lesnar wrestling that is understandable I guess. But I thought Randy had some sort of exclusive rights with EA. Maybe that was just an executive call by the UFC. As you said, Dana White is not fond of Randy these days.

  • Mike Query

    Expect EA to spread out the notable omissions over multiple DLC download packages. EA being EA.

  • TMack1986

    By looking at the roster..it’s safe to say which division dominates UFC…Light heavyweight

    • Drew Douglas

      Middleweight and Bantom are still the most exciting classes.

  • http://pastapadre.com/ pastapadre

    Huh? That’s bizarre because the video player doesn’t even have a setting to make it auto-play. Must be something on your end cause I’ve never seen that and never heard from anyone else that it’s done that. And if it was doing that for people I’d be seeing it in the numbers of video views which don’t look abnormally high. I’ll have to check into what might cause that to happen for you.

    (Edit) Oh maybe you’re referring to ads? Anything that has video to it wouldn’t have sound. And if it did I’d report it to have it removed. But I haven’t come across anything like that or had it reported to me either.

    • sqman

      Mine does this as well. All videos start playing. I’m using the lastest Firefox browser and have adblock enabled.

  • Jeff

    They need more heavyweights they didnt even add half of the the current heavyweights no Stevan Struve or Matt Mitrione but they add Pat Barry whos not even with the UFC & no Fabio Maldanado in light heavyweight

  • aaron10101

    This roster is nice love the fact they put my dude Nick Diaz in and also nate at welterweight. Would love to see more newer fighters like Sergio Pettis haha. But a lot of names. The dlc will be stuffed with more fighters I hope

  • wxs

    so there’s no champion in the bantamweight class(dillashaw)
