TO DARE IS TO DO: This user has had enough and wants the cause to gain some momentum!


PC fans of the UFC have gone as far as creating a petition on change.org!

And it’s still unclear as to whether PS5 will support UFC 4 with backwards compatibility since it will only support a small list of titles.

Hidden Teasers

One of them is deemed a mater of martial arts, while the other recently rose to notoriety thanks to footage being leaked from his street fights.

UFC 4 is expected to feature:
