Amanda Nunes And Jon Jones Are The Top-Ranked Fighters In ‘UFC 4’

While fans have the opportunity to create their own legends in the completely revamped Career Mode, UFC 4 has released its top-50 UFC fighters ahead of the game’s release on Friday. The two-division GOAT, Amanda Nunes, is the top pound-for-pound fighter in the game, slightly edging Jon Jones at No. 2, Khabib Nurmagomedov at No. 3 and Valentina Schevchenko at No. 4 as the only five-star fighters in the game.

The No. 1 ranked bantamweight and featherweight champion’s placement is well-deserved, with wins over Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, Schevchenko, Cris Cyborg and Holly Holm over the last four years. Despite close decision victories over the likes of Dominick Reyes and Thiago Santos in recent years, Jones’ record remains unblemished aside from a disqualification loss to Matt Hamill in 2009.

Jones was able to fend off Nurmagomedov’s equally impressive stretch, where he’s earned wins over Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier. Schevchenko rounds out the five-star fighters with five-consecutive wins since her loss to Nunes in 2017.

See the rest of the top 50 below, which correlates stars 1-5 as a representation of each fighter’s overall ability.
