Conor McGregor’s UFC 4 Rating Has Finally Been Revealed By EA Sports

Conor McGregor’s UFC 4 Rating Has Finally Been Revealed By EA Sports

Irish superstar Conor McGregor has been ranked as the 20th best fighter in the forthcoming UFC 4, EA Sports has confirmed.

The 32-year-old ex-UFC star made his long-awaited MMA return in January with a clinical first-round victory over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.

Despite the Irishman's retirement -- the third time in the space of four years -- McGregor has still secured a place in EA Sports UFC 4.

McGregor has been awarded a four-and-a-half-star overall and his stats are broken down into three categories.

The former UFC double champ has three-and-a-half stars for grappling and four stars for health.
