    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.
