By Jonathan Barnes, 4 years ago
EA continues to roll out fighters for their upcoming EA SPORTS UFC. Last week, they introduced Fabricio Werdum, Gegard Mousasi, and Anthony Pettis. Let's see who they're calling to the octagon this week.

We'll kick things off with "Uncle Creepy", Ian McCall.

Owner of one of the most unique nicknames in the UFC today, Ian “Uncle Creepy” McCall has been fighting professionally since 2002. Making his Flyweight debut in 2011, McCall has already faced off against the divisions best, taking on Demetrious Johnson on two separate occasions, as well as Joseph Benavidez. After coming out on the wrong end of two consecutive unanimous decisions, McCall bounced back in style with a Fight of the Night win over Iliarde Santos at UFC 163 in Brazil.
Moving along from everyone's creepy, mustachio'd uncle, let's meet Dan Henderson!

A true MMA legend, Dan “Hendo” Henderson, has squared off against the best-of-best in a pro career that dates all the way back to 1997 and is still going strong today. With 14 wins by KO/TKO it’s safe to say that Hendo has some of the heaviest hands in the UFC while also boasting one of the best chins. A fan-favorite who holds winning records in the UFC, PRIDE and Strikeforce, Henderson most recently got himself back into the win column with a Fight of the Night comeback-performance in his rematch with fellow legend, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
Finally, it's a lady. Let's get to know Miesha "Cupcake" Tate.

Miesha Tate

A staple in women’s MMA since turning pro in 2007, Miesha “Cupcake” Tate has established herself as one most recognizable female fighters in the game today. Winner of seven of her last 10 bouts, Tate recently followed up her season as one of the first female coaches in the history of The Ultimate Fighter by going toe-to-toe with her rival Ronda Rousey for the Women’s Bantamweight Belt. Despite the loss, Tate turned in a Fight of the Night performance and grew her fan base in the process.
She's pretty AND fierce! I think I like. Let's get a closer look at that smile!

...I'm sorry, Miss Cupcake, I'll never say such things again.

EA will continue to slowly reveal fighters until EA Sports UFC is released this Spring on the Xbox One.
