Jorge Masvidal And Israel Adesanya Announced As EA Sports UFC 4 Cover Stars

Jorge Masvidal and Israel Adesanya will grace the front cover of the new EA Sports UFC 4 game, to be released on August 14.

Conor McGregor was the cover star for EA Sports 3 when it was released in February 2018 but fast forward more than two years and two new stars rightfully take their place.


BMF champion Masvidal, who will main event UFC 251 after taking the welterweight title fight with Kamaru Usman on six days notice, is joined by middleweight champion Adesanya on the cover after Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager Ali Abdelaziz hinted it would be the case.

The pair were announced as cover stars in a spine-tingling promo ahead of tonight's historic UFC event on Fight Island.


Reflecting on being one of the fighters chosen to be front and centre, Adesanya said: "I am the face of the new wave of UFC fighters, so it feels right to represent the sport on this new generation UFC game.

"I look forward to my fans playing as me as much as I have enjoyed playing as myself."

Explaining how the pair were selected as the cover stars, EA Sports UFC 4 producer Nate McDonald told SPORTbible: "We're all fight fans on the UFC team so for each game we identify a few different fighters that we think represent the best and brightest in the sport at that moment and both Jorge and Israel were great fits for this iteration of the title.

"They not only stand out as global stars in the UFC but the integrate really well with the direction we took the game in this year. That's where we landed on that."
