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.
But McGregor's chief strength comes down to his striking, which has earned him a four-and-a-half-star rating.
MMA stars that ranked ahead of McGregor include Justin Gaethje (18th), Daniel Cormier (16th) and UFC 4 co-cover star Jorge Masvidal (14th).
EA Sports has also tweeted out the rankings from 50-20 as it works its way down for the reveal of the top 10 fighters in UFC 4.
The UFC publisher debuted the first look at the upcoming title last month at UFC 251.
Since UFC 4's announcement, EA Sports has confirmed that Masvidal will be one of the cover stars alongside Israel Adesanya.
Boxing superstars Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury will follow in the same footsteps as Mike Tyson by becoming playable characters in the EA Sports series.
UFC 4 will arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 14th August.
