Although we've yet to receive the official release date, one of the first things we should learn is about the EA Sports UFC 5 ratings.

More importantly, we'll learn about who will be the highest-rated fighter in the game. There are plenty of active fighters to choose from that could lead the ratings.

Let's make some predictions on who we think will lead the EA Sport UFC 5 ratings.

EA Sports UFC 5 Ratings - Best Fighter Predictions

Choosing the highest-rated fighter in UFC 5 can be tough, but it's something all of us are wondering about. To lead the UFC 5 ratings, you have to be at the top of the UFC food chain.

Aside from legendary fighters such as Georges St-Pierre, who are no longer active, who will lead the ratings? There's one active fighter that we think will separate himself from the rest.

THE STYLEBENDER: Could Israel Adesanya lead the ratings?

Israel Adesanya is one of our favorites to lead the EA Sports UFC 5 ratings. Currently, he's listed as the No.2 pound for pound active fighter in the UFC, just behind another favorite Kamaru Usman.

Here's a list of active and former fighters we think could round out the top ten:

  • Israel Adesanya
  • Kamaru Usman
  • Francis Ngannou
  • Alexander Volkanovski
  • Khabib Nurmagomedov
  • Valentina Shevchenko
  • Stipe Miocic
  • Georges St-Pierre
  • Jon Jones
  • Amanda Nunes

Now, let's go over what we know about UFC 5 so far, including the potential release date.

Potential UFC 5 Release Date

What we'll likely find out before the EA Sports UFC 5 ratings, is the official release date for the game. We can actually use previous releases as a guide to help us anticipate the right date.

Hopefully, around the time of the official announcement, we'll get a look at the cover athlete as well as a first look at the ratings. We'll have to wait and see for that though.

POTENTIAL COVER ATHLETE: Who do you think will grace the UFC 5 cover?

Here are the previous release dates for the game:

  • EA Sports UFC: Released 17 June 2014
  • EA Sports UFC 2: Released 15 March 2016
  • EA Sports UFC 3: Released 2 February 2018
  • EA Sports UFC 4: Released 14 August 2020

We believe that UFC 5 will be released around the same time as UFC 4 was, mid to late August. We wouldn't be surprised if the game came a little bit later.

EA Sports UFC 5 Pre Order rewards

After the release date and the UFC 5 ratings are revealed, we'll likely learn about pre orders and early access rewards.

This could range from a few different items and could also show off the different editions of the game. The more special editions, the more likely chance we'll receive better rewards.
