      Nice, even though he hasn't fought a single fight yet

      I heard he's rated an 85 too!

      There's supposedly 200+ fighters on the roster in the game, so they must have lots of new, inexperienced fighters as well as legends.

      I bet there is going to be a great fighter at 89 where Punk is at 85.

      The mystery fighter will be revealed tomorrow.

      Community speculation centers on it being Mike Tyson.

      I’m not a huge UFC/MMA guy but I do keep one eye on the sport.
      I’m definitely a casual fan who’s interest gets piqued if/when a big name is fighting, but beyond that, I’m not rushing to buy every PPV or purchase MMA magazines.
      However, I may buy UFC 2. I’m looking for something different and the career mode has been upgraded to a level where I think I’d have fun.

      I’m weary of trying something out of my comfort zone but over the last few years I’ve gotten lucky when doing so (NBA2K, Mad Max, Sleeping Dogs…).
      So I’m hoping UFC won’t be a waste of money.
      The only reason I may not jump on board right away is because I have The Division coming at the same time.
      I’ve got the Beta Code for that so I guess if I don’t like it, I’ll just cancel and put that money towards UFC 2.

      I didn't watch their stream today, but supposedly EA stated Punk will be the lowest rated fighter in the game at launch, but I don't think they gave his rating.

      Everyone loses their minds over the ratings. Even if he's an 81 or 85 - without having one career fight - I'm more interested in seeing what his individual ratings are, as well as his skill set.
      An OS member, who attended the Community Event, also stated that due to contractual obligations, the UFC won't allow for their fighters to be rated below a certain threshold - similar to the NHL games.
      So EA has their hands tied in a way.
      In the end, even if he's an 85, if his other skills are weak, and he's missing a slew of disciplines which makes him a very weak fighter, then who cares?
      It's all relative.

      But I will be upset if he can hang with Jon Jones and the like.
