The official description for the Beta says:
“Shape Your Legend in the EA Sports UFC 4 Beta.
“In UFC 4 the fighter you become is shaped by your fight style, your achievements, and your personality.
“No matter how or where you play, UFC 4 puts ‘you’ at the center of every fight.”
The fighter has had some iconic moments, from lighting fast and brutal knockouts to winning the BMF Belt against Nate Diaz.
A tweet from Nurmagomedov's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, suggested that the legendary fighter may not be gracing the cover of UFC 4.
This is not confirmed by EA, and as always we should take this with a big pinch of salt until more concrete information comes to light.
That being said, Ali Abdelaziz, claims to know who is on the front cover of the game, and appears to be understandably disappointed that his fighter has allegedly not made it.

His post reads that, 'This should be the new cover. This man never lost. I know who will be on the new cover. One is good but another has a double digit loses"
The post also shows a fan-made interpretation of Khabib on the cover of UFC 4.
Anthoney Joshua & Tyson Fury?
Reportedly boxing superstars Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury could be set to feature in the upcoming UFC 4.
This is, by no means, officially confirmed, so again make sure not to take this as fact.
In a video on The Fight Guys YouTube Channel, Brian Mazique mentioned that both fighters could be set to feature in the MMA title, in much the same way as Mike Tyson did previously.
We could find out the cover star of UFC 4 at the 11 July reveal. We'll be sure to let you know as soon as we do.
