Just a short while before Saturday’s UFC 169 card, EA Sports has revealed three fighter likenesses from their upcoming game.
The first was number one contender Ricardo Lamas. He is making his video game debut with this character and will look to become the UFC featherweight champion before the games release.

Since making his professional debut in 2008, Ricardo Lamas has been hard at work cementing his status as a fighter to watch out for in the Featherweight division. After racking up a 4-2 record in the WEC, Lamas transitioned into the UFC in 2011, scoring a first-round TKO win over Matt Grice in his debut. The Bully would go on to log a Submission of the Night performance against Cub Swanson at UFC on Fox: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos and went undefeated in his first four UFC bouts.
the net was Lamas’ opponent, UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Aldo made his debut in a video game in the last installment of UFC Undisputed and has now been given the next-fen treatment.

Jose Aldo became the UFC’s inaugural Featherweight champion on Nov. 20, 2010 and hasn’t let the title go since. Following his first UFC title defense against Mark Hominick, the former WEC champ hasn’t looked back, defending it five times against some of the division’s top talent, including Kenny Florian, Chad Mendes and Frankie Edgar. Considered one of MMA best pound-for-pound fighters, Aldo is an adept finisher with 15 of his 23 career wins coming by way of knockout.
The final character revealed is the former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir. Mir will take on Alistair Overeem on the UFC 169 main card.
Here are Mir’s in-game profile stats:
Current Record: 16-8-0

Fights Out Of: Las Vegas, NV, USA
Height: 6’3” (190 cm)
Weight: 240 lbs (109 kg)
Strengths: Great Submissions, Improved Striking, Two-Time Heavyweight Champion
Stepping into the Octagon for the first time in only his third pro bout, Frank Mir has been a staple of the UFC’s Heavyweight division since 2001. After winning the Heavyweight title from Tim Sylvia in 2004, Mir was sidelined for 20 months by a near career-ending motorcycle accident. His return to the sport is recognized as one of the greatest comebacks in UFC history, with Mir managing to fight his way back to become the division’s interim champion in 2008. An impressive ground game has helped Mir secure devastating submission wins over, Sylvia, Brock Lesnar, Cheick Kongo and Minotauro Nogueira.
