First Look at UFC 5’s Star-Studded Lineup
Gamers, brace yourselves! UFC 5 is about to drop, and it’s not just your regular MMA simulation game. Sure, EA Sports has upped the ante with gameplay improvements and engine changes for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. But here’s the real kicker: Boxing legends Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, as well as MMA superstar Fedor Emelianenko, are stepping into the virtual octagon! That’s right; these are not your standard UFC fighters, but they will be available in the game.
“EA did confirm in early September that former Bellator star Fedor Emelianenko, as well as legendary boxers Mike Tyson and Muhammad Ali, will be available fighters.”
So, let’s get to the good stuff: How do you unlock these special fighters in UFC 5?
Pre-order Bonanza: The Golden Ticket to Epic Fights
You don’t have to crack a secret code or complete a maze of challenges to get your hands on these icons. All you have to do is pre-order UFC 5, and voilà, you unlock not just one but four special fighters, including Bruce Lee.

But it’s not just about the special fighters. EA Sports is going all out on this one, featuring cover athletes Alexander Volkanovski, Valentina Shevchenko, and Israel Adesanya. Also stepping into the octagon are big names like Jon Jones, Ciryl Gane, Stipe Miocic, and Colby Covington.
