Three more fighters have been revealed for the upcoming EA Sports UFC title, due out this Spring.

They include the second female fighter unveiled, in Miesha Tate, as well as MMA legend Dan Henderson, who is hot off a win against Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua. The third is not only an uncanny representation of a fighter, but it also showcases the detail that they can achieve as Ian McCall has been expertly recreated from his facial hair, to his tattoos, to his hair style.

Here are McCall’s in-game profile stats:

  • Nickname: Uncle Creepy
  • Current Record: 12-4-1
  • From: Newport Beach, CA, USA
  • Fights Out Of: Irvine, CA, USA
  • Age: 29
  • Height: 5’5” (165 cm)
  • Weight: 125 lbs (56kg)
  • Strengths: Sets a Fast Pace, Explosiveness, Ground and Pound

Owner of one of the most unique nicknames in the UFC today, Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall has been fighting professionally since 2002. Making his Flyweight debut in 2011, McCall has already faced off against the divisions best, taking on Demetrious Johnson on two separate occasions, as well as Joseph Benavidez. After coming out on the wrong end of two consecutive unanimous decisions, McCall bounced back in style with a Fight of the Night win over Iliarde Santos at UFC 163 in Brazil.

The next is Henderson, who was a bit off in both the THQ developed UFC titles as well as the EA MMA title.

Here are Henderson’s in-game profile stats:

  • Fights Out Of: Temecula, CA, USA
  • Age: 43
  • Height: 6’1” (185 cm)
  • Weight: 205 lbs (93kg)

A true MMA legend, Dan “Hendo” Henderson, has squared off against the best-of-best in a pro career that dates all the way back to 1997 and is still going strong today. With 14 wins by KO/TKO it’s safe to say that Hendo has some of the heaviest hands in the UFC while also boasting one of the best chins. A fan-favorite who holds winning records in the UFC, PRIDE and Strikeforce, Henderson most recently got himself back into the win column with a Fight of the Night comeback-performance in his rematch with fellow legend, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.

The final fighter revealed is women’s bantamweight contender Miesha Tate, who is outfitted in her trademark pink and purple Venum fight gear and the hair braids that are a mainstay in her fights.

Despite the loss, Tate turned in a Fight of the Night performance and grew her fan base in the process.
