UFC 4: A virtual combat experience


UFC 4 cover

UFC 4 is a fighting game based on the mixed martial arts promotion, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). UFC is the largest MMA (mixed martial arts) organization in the world.

Like many other sports games, UFC 4 features a career mode. In career mode you are able to create your own, custom UFC fighter. The goal of career mode is to make your fighter the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time). As players progress with their fighter, they can choose to accept or decline fights, which can affect their fighter’s career.

ESPN.com states, “there are 12 weight classes in the UFC.” However UFC 4 only has 11. Weight classes are required because without them fighters wouldn’t be able to demonstrate their skills. Also, it helps make the fight fair for both fighters. For example, If a heavyweight fighter fought a lightweight fighter it wouldn’t be fair because one fighter is bigger than the other.

According to Outsidergaming.com, UFC 4 has various fighting styles, including boxing, Muay Thai, wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Each style has its strengths and weaknesses. For instance, a kickboxer wouldn’t be able to beat a wrestler at wrestling because they aren’t as skilled as the wrestler at fighting on the floor. However, a kickboxer would be more skilled at punching and kicking than a fighter that uses a wrestling fighting style.

Sportskeeda.com says, UFC has “229 distinct fighters, with an additional 81 alternate versions.” The most popular fighters are Conor McGregor, Jon Jones, and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Each of these fighters are good choices to use when you’re playing against someone and you don’t want to lose.

In conclusion, UFC 4 offers an authentic and exhilarating experience for both MMA enthusiasts and gamers. Whether you aspire to create your own legendary fighter or step into the shoes of your favorite UFC stars, UFC 4 delivers a gaming experience that will keep you engaged and entertained for hours.
