We are finally getting the new game, but when will the UFC 5 ratings be revealed? With some big announcements about the game finally shedding light on everything players can expect, the arguments over ratings are getting fierce.

UFC 5 is right around the corner, but for now who do we think will be the best fighters in the game? Let's take a look!

Latest news - New features revealed

EA is going all-out with UFC 5. The game will make use of the Frostbite engine for the first time in the franchise and is packed with new features.

From improved blood & damage, both visually and functionally, that gives the game an M rating to updated submission systems and strikes to the addition of the fight doctor.

UFC 5 ratings - best fighter predictions

Choosing the highest-rated fighter in UFC 5 can be tough, but it's something all of us are wondering about. To lead the UFC 5 ratings, you have to be at the top of the UFC food chain.

Aside from legendary fighters such as Georges St-Pierre, who are no longer active, who will lead the ratings? There's one active fighter that we think will separate himself from the rest.

THE STYLEBENDER: Could Israel Adesanya lead the ratings?

Israel Adesanya is one of our favourites to lead the UFC 5 ratings. As he is the Deluxe Edition cover fighter it would make sense too.

Here's a list of active and former fighters we think could round out the top ten:

  • Israel Adesanya
  • Kamaru Usman
  • Francis Ngannou
  • Alexander Volkanovski
  • Khabib Nurmagomedov
  • Valentina Shevchenko
  • Stipe Miocic
  • Georges St-Pierre
  • Jon Jones
  • Amanda Nunes

Now, let's go over what we know about UFC 5 so far, including the potential release date.
