EA Sports UFC 3 Roster and Ratings: Flyweight and Bantamweight

Posted January 15th, 2018 at 3:00 pm

With just over a week to go until EA Sports UFC 3 goes out through EA Access on Xbox One the publisher has begun to reveal the full roster of fighters and their respective ratings. First up are the flyweights and bantamweights led by champions Demetrious Johnson and T.J. Dillashaw.

UFC 3 is changing up the ratings with four overarching categories: Striking, Grappling, Stamina and Health. Previously fighters were ranked on Ground, Stand-up, and Clinch. As was the case with the first two games the ratings are exceedingly top heavy. Presumably separation comes from sub-attributes as the lowest number given to a fighter in any category is 82.


Top 15 ranked fighters missing: Alexandre Pantoja, Matheus Nicolau, Magomed Bibulatov, Deiveson Figueiredo


Top 15 ranked fighters missing: Pedro Munhoz, Brett Johns, Rob Font


Overall Striking rating is determined by a fighter’s strike speed, power, accuracy, footwork, head movement, blocking and switch stance which controls striking power differential in your opposite stance.


Overall Grappling rating is determined by a fighter’s top game, bottom game, submission offense, submission defense, clinch throws, clinch grapple, takedown ability and takedown defense.


Overall Stamina rating is determined by a fighter’s strike stamina, grapple stamina and endurance.


Overall Health rating is determined by a fighter’s chin strength, body strength, leg strength, toughness and heart.
