EA Sports has released the UFC fighters ranking in UFC 4. UFC Women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion Amanda Nunes has claimed the top spot surpassing Jon Jones, the UFC light heavyweight champion, and Khabib Nurmagomedov, the UFC lightweight champion.

Nunes became the first woman to receive the top overall rating in EA Sports' UFC video game series. EA UFC 4 will be released on August 14 that will feature  UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and welterweight superstar Jorge Masvidal as the cover athletes.

Top 10 for UFC 4 rankings:

  1. Amanda Nunes
  2. Jon Jones
  3. Khabib Nurmagomedov
  4. Valentina Shevchenko
  5. Henry Cejudo
  6. Israel Adesanya
  7. Weili Zhang
  8. Stipe Miocic 
  9. Georges St-Pierre
  10. Kamaru Usman

Several UFC fans did not agree with Nunes being the no. 1 as Jon Jones is often regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter. However, Nunes is quite active lately and holds titles in two different weight classes. She is also on an 11-fight win streak since 2014.

EA earlier also revealed the ranking from 11-50 and surprisingly on no 20 sits the UFC legend and former double division champion Conor McGregor. Conor's ranking is quite controversial as some names like Justin Gaethje and Jorge Masvidal are placed way ahead of him.

Who do you think should be the No. 1 overall in EA UFC 4?
