    The full roster has been revealed for EA SPORTS UFC 2. Featuring 250+ male and female fighters across ten weight classes, the roster includes legends, current competitors, as well as Mike Tyson.

    Several fighters exist across numerous weight classes, meaning there are multiple versions of some putting the number of unique competitors below the 250 mark. However, with such a large and diverse roster, the game should benefit from a varied experience within career mode, hopefully minimizing repeat matches and/or career paths, and also providing a significant number of options for users across the game modes.

    The roster reveal tab on the official product website also includes an area for detailing fighter ratings, however none have been disclosed to date.

    This week's MLB The Show 16 livestream focused on Diamond Dynasty (DD) and improvements coming to the mode by taking a deeper look at some of the DD features announced earlier this week.

    Play a Friend allows users to play others on their friends list with a bevy of options. There will be no way to farm or exploit items in this mode; it is simply playing friends.

    There will be hundreds of 'Flashbacks' that will reflect the player at a certain point in his career. For example, the Jake Peavy Flashback card highlighted in the video has five pitch types, including a slider. Peavy does not throw a slider much currently, but since he did at that point in his career, the card will include it.

    Other modes discussed include Captains, Inside Edge ('live' ratings updates), the ability to see player cards and improved filters in the Marketplace, Missions, bullpen energy, new player gear, dedicated stats area, pack types, card images, and more.

    Additional ways to play & DD improvements will be announced in early March.
