There will be a new UFC 4 cover athlete and it will be determined by UFC 281, a fight between Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya.

These two fighters will take the cage this weekend and decide who will land the cover. We also have the promotional video for the fight below.

UFC 4 Cover Athlete Match

This is Alex Pereira's first big fight as a headliner so we're surprised he's even a thought for the UFC 4 cover.

However, since it's not for UFC 5, we imagine that this will just be a limited-run Digital Edition cover, similar to the Deion Sanders cover in Madden 23.

You can play the fight now by heading jumping into the game and playing out the fight. Perhaps the in-game fight will determine who will land the UFC 4 cover.

The fight will take place on Saturday, November 12 at 7 PM so keep that in mind as we near the event.

New Fighter Drop - 11/10

The reason why you'll be able to play the fight for the UFC 4 cover is because of a recent fighter drop in the game.

Three new fighters were added including Alex Pereira, who comes in with a 4.5 rating. We'll get into more specifics on his rating below.
