In a few weeks time, at the start of February, the latest title in EA’s UFC franchise will hit the shelves both physically and digitally. EA UFC 3 promises to be the deepest MMA sim yet to hit the market and chief to that intention is a super-realistic, deep roster of UFC talent.

The game, which is due for release on PS4 and Xbox One on February 2nd, once again features Conor McGregor as its cover star and boasts a wide array of features, including a deeper career mode, online play and a new interpretation of EA’s popular ‘Ultimate Team’ mechanic.

But the question most fans will be asking as they contemplate buying it will be, ‘Exactly which fighters have been included on the roster this time around?'”

Well, we’re here to help.

The various trailers which have appeared thus far have confirmed several members of this year’s roster and what we have as of now is as follows. Remember, this isn’t the full, complete list and it is *very* likely that there will be several fighters included who are not listed below.
