EA UFC has unveiled the likeness of two more fighters on their roster.
The first was a given to make it on the roster as UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell makes his official appearance in the game. A screenshot of Liddell was released some time ago as he was mid victory following a virtual fight yet the angle was from far away and was released while the game was still in its testing phases. Now, with the game due out in the next few months, this finalized Liddell is what fans can expect from the new game.
Here is Liddell’s in-game profile stats:
- Nickname: The Iceman
- Record: 21-8-0
- From: Santa Barbara, CA, USA
- Age: 44
- Height: 6’2” (187 cm)
- Weight: 205 lbs (93 kg)
- Strengths: Excellent Striker, Well-Rounded Grappler
The epitome of a UFC “Hall of famer”, Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell utilized his seek-and-destroy style of stand-up to rack up the second most career knockouts in UFC history, behind only Anderson Silva. Liddell held the Light Heavyweight title from April 2005 to May 2007 and is largely considered to be the top fighter of all time for his weight class. He also boasts one of the most memorable knockout celebrations in UFC history.
The other addition may be a tease to the depth of the roster as Erik ‘El Goyito’ Perez makes an appearance.
Not to say Perez is an undeserving candidate — he is 4-1 in the UFC with his lone loss coming by split-decision under the ZUFFA banner — but instead compare it to the previous game, developed by THQ. The depth of the UFC Undisputed 3 roster left out several notables such as Stephan Bonnar, Chris Weidman and Alexander Gustafsson just to mention some prospects (at the time) and a Hall of Famer.
Either way, Perez is a fantastic addition to the roster to help fans really get the full experience of a UFC game. Here is his character:
Here are Perez’s in game profile stats:
- Nickname: Goyito
- Current Record: 13-5-0
- From: Monterrey, Mexico
- Fights Out Of: Albuquerque, NM, USA
- Age: 23
- Height: 5’8” (172 cm)
- Weight: 135 lbs (61 kg)
- Strengths: Striking
A striker at his core, Erik “Goyito” Perez holds the distinction of recording the fastest knockout in UFC/WEC Bantamweight history when he KOed Ken Stone in 17 seconds at UFC 150 in 2012. Prior to dropping a tight split decision to Takeya Mizugaki in 2013, Perez was riding an impressive eight fight win-streak which he’ll be looking to start up again as soon as possible.
