The team at EA Sports has launched UFC 5 Alter Egos Origins, spotlighting the defining experiences that have shaped the fighters we know today.
A new live service mode for UFC 5, players will be able to unlock versions of eight of their favorite UFC athletes. Scope out the full list – and their history that lead them to this point – below:
– Jon Jones – 2008, UFC 87: Filling in as a short-notice replacement at UFC 87 was when the world first experienced Jon Jones in the Octagon. He’s been an indomitable presence ever since.
– Leon Edwards – 2015, UFC Fight Night 64: After stumbling in his UFC debut, Leon Edwards needed a rebound in a big way – which he did in eight seconds at UFC Fight Night 64 in 2015.
– Connor McGregor – 2013, UFC on Fuel 9: In his UFC debut in 2013, it would take just over a minute for Conor McGregor (“Notorious”) to score the knockout and light the world on fire.
– Sean O’Malley – 2017, Dana White’s Contender Series (DWCS): Sean O’Malley (“Suga”) was lean, mean and still pretty green when he put on a show for Dana White’s Contender Series.
– Alex Pereira – 2017: In 2017, Alex Pereira (“Poatan”) won the title he’d go on to defend five times before making his way to the Octagon.
– Alexander Volkanovski – 2011: Alexander Volkanovski’s strength, speed, and smarts brought his team a Premiership Grand Final victory in 2011, the first of many titles for “The Great.”
– Valentina Shevchenko – 2014: – In 2014, a devastating kickboxing K.O. victory would presage Valentina Shevchenko’s (“Bullet”) Octagon debut.
– Israel Adesanya – 2017: In 2017, Israel Adesanya’s electric performance against an experienced veteran would bring him to 10-0
