A few more screenshots for the upcoming “EA Sports: UFC” video game have been released, including Nate Diaz and Dan Henderson.
The video game for Xbox and Playstation 4 is scheduled for a release this spring and will feature many of the top names in the UFC today. There is also reports of a surprise person being included in the game and available in several weight classes.
Check out the in-game screenshots and quick bios on Diaz, Henderson, Josh Thomson, Fabricio Werdum and Dominick Cruz.
Winner of The Ultimate Fighter Season 5, and one half of the fan-favorite Diaz brothers, Nate Diaz made his professional fighting debut in the WEC at the age of 19. With a dominant ground game and top-tier boxing in his arsenal, Diaz not only finished all four of his TUF 5 bouts, but has since gone on to earn nine of his last 13 wins by submission. Most recently showcasing his standup with a Knockout of the Night win over Gray Maynard at The Ultimate Fighter 18 finale, Diaz will be looking repeat his bonus-winning performance the next time he steps back into the Octagon.
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.
One of the biggest threats currently throwing down in the UFC’s Heavyweight division, Fabricio Werdum is a true MMA veteran and boasts a professional career that dates all the way back to 2002. Riding a three-fight win streak since returning to the UFC in February of 2012, Werdum has most recently showcased his versatile skill-set with a KO win over Mike Russow followed by a submission victory over Minotauro Nogueira. Werdum ranks among the top five Heavyweights in the UFC.
A true MMA veteran, Josh “The Punk” Thomson’s professional fighting career dates all the way back to 2001. Boasting a well-rounded skillset and strong ground game, Thomson has earned finishes in 14 of his 20 career victories, with eight coming via submission and another six by way of knockout. Making his original Octagon debut back in 2003 at UFC 44, Thomson went on to spend time as the Strikeforce Lightweight Champion before making his return to the UFC in April of 2013 with a Knockout of the Night performance over Nate Diaz.
The UFC’s first-ever Bantamweight Champion, Dominick Cruz represents one of the division’s most talented fighters, logging only a single loss in his professional career to rival Urijah Faber. An elusive fighter that deploys a mixture of boxing and wrestling inside the Octagon, Cruz also owned the WEC Bantamweight belt prior to becoming a champion in the UFC. Despite never losing his title during competition, Cruz has been plagued by a series of injuries that have kept him sidelined since 2011, eventually causing him to vacate his UFC title. Currently working his way back to 100%, Cruz will be looking to make his return to MMA in the near future.
