EA Sports UFC 4 Star Rating System Explained - Top 50 UFC 4 Fighters Slowly Being Revealed...(21-50)

EA Sports has re-envisioned the way players will view fighter overalls in UFC 4. Instead of an overall score for every fighter, they will now be given a star value from 1 to 5, that serves as a representation of their overall ability in the game.

In addition to the overall star rating, each fighter will also have a star rating for their stand up, ground game, health, and moves. This change will allow players to quickly observe and determine a fighter’s strengths and weaknesses in specific areas, without focusing on a single numerical OVR. This allows for a better assortment of fighters when playing online or against friends on the couch. For returning users and advanced players, you can examine a fighter’s individual attribute values as numbers. This will help you determine who has the highest punch power or highest kick speed in each division and allow comparisons of individual attributes on each fighter.

To accommodate the new gameplay features and allow for a more realistic representation of diverse fighting styles, the team expanded the attribute system.

  • Punch Speed / Kick Speed – Punches and kicks are split in terms of their speed.
  • Punch Power / Kick Power – Punches and kicks are split in terms of the damage they cause.
  • Clinch Striking – Supporting the brand new clinch system.
  • Ground Striking – Supporting the brand new ground and pound system.
  • Cardio – Replaces strike stamina and ground stamina.
  • Recovery – Replaces heart and toughness.

Make sure to read the full breakdown at the official UFC 4 website.

With that said, over the next 10 days, EA Sports will be revealing the top 50 fighters in UFC 4, starting from the top 50-41 today.

We’ll keep this updated…

UPDATE: (8-1) The top 31-40 UFC 4 fighters have been revealed. We’ve also added some new screenshots of some of the fighters.

  1. Wow, I actually really like this for ranked. I am not really much of a gamer, I'm just a huge ufc fan so I have played every ufc game and was really good at ufc 3. I literally never played ranked because I hated playing conor, wonderboy, jon jones, gsp over and over again. I may actually play ranked now!
    I do like that they're implementing live update into the rating system. Was annoying having someone clearly improve IRL and have the game never update.
    I get the feeling that they are trying to tell us : this is how ranked works now. Just because you are good in the MW division with any fighter doesn't mean you will be in the top 100 on ranked.
    You have to be good across most of the divisions . One division or more might not cut it.
    Remember this company profiles us gamers . This is subtle programming .

    Is Dustin really number 42 P4P?
    I'm sure there will be arguments about a few of these but that one to me is very egregious.

    Don’t get caught up in that as the game will also rate legends and celebrities amongst all divisions

    I mean if Ronda's there, there are likely going to be legends ahead of him.
    I remember an interview with Brian Hayes where he said that they got rid of overalls because they would have to bump up a certain fighters stats unjustly just to get them a higher overall, he used Rousey as an example and said that they had to give her better striking so the overall would be higher.
    I feel like the star system could just bring back that issue that they got rid of in 3.
    Apart from that I just don’t really like the star system personally, because to me it kinda takes away the individuality of the fighters at least visually from the selection screen.
    good night friends.
    do you think it will not be possible to change the colors of the FIGHTERS shorts?
    black, white, colorful, champion?
    because in all the videos, leaks and images, we don't have any fighters with white shorts.
    What are your thoughts on that?
    big hug to all
    Base on the new star rating... I hope they will post what a CAF rating look like... a freshly created one and a maxed one... just To figure out where they will stand compare to top 50...
    Gonna give a glimpse To people where they will fit in rank with their CAF.
    always base on the strar rating.
    I’m so confused what is the basis for this ranking system? And can we get away from stats and star based crap and actually have pros and cons or fight styles? Like say Woodley is a low out out counter striker/wrestler so if you throw 120 strikes in the first round at a 30% accuracy rate you will be dead by the next?
    I dont understand what is going on with this game. Its just like WWE2k20 its a disaster and one of the worst games ever made. The same exact thing happened on release. Does anyone know what the deal is, because I am about to cancel my preorder.

    I believe it's been stated that the CAF base models you can choose from are preset (stat and move builds), no maxing out or changing things in those regards. Also that they will be around an A- fighter. So not the best, but viable to be competitive.

    Well that makes my decision easy
    At least that Dom model ain't too bad. Hopefully they've updated more models than we are all expecting, however I'm not holding my breath.
    I fully expect to see skinny Yoel Romero in the game.
    I like the star system. It doesn’t bother me. It’s literally no different from before except we have stars instead of numbers as overalls. Makes the overall more simple, and at the same time we still have actual number ratings for individual stats.
    The star system goes well with the new UI too. It looks great.

    What do new models matter when you'll be playing against Spider-Man every other fight?

    I'm not convinced that's gonna be the case. It seems to be clear that ranked players don't want to use CAFs in ranked, and that people who do want to use CAFs, don't tend to play ranked. So in theory, when you play ranked (if this holds true) you shouldn't come up against many CAFs, because the people who use CAFs mostly won't be playing ranked.

    Well UT players used CAFs and had their ranked mode.
    They’ve been displaced so where would they go?
    I think it’s a situation where we’re forced to play with CAF ranked players.

    That used to be the case, because CAF's weren't allowed on ranked, but that's out of the window now.
    I expect at least 50% of your ranked matches will be against CAF's, but we'll see.

    This isn't an actual p4p list

    Obviously.
    But in this context he is 42nd best fighter in this game when realistically he is the second or third best fighter in the toughest divison in the UFC (with a win against of the people ahead of him). Just seems a bit low to me. Although I do see the point people made about legends taking spots.
    Eh, don't know why I'm bothered ill buy the ****in thing anyway.

    I bet over 70%. People are going to be crying about this.
    Ima start a gofund me page for the surgery on my knees because I CANT stand playing against a ronald mcdonald, spiderman, or deformed looking cafs. Y cant they make a separate rank for the circus cafs and leave regular rank to the real fighters?...
    The star ratings as a way to quickly read skill level is directly from NHL and is no different than the letter grades in 2k. They're fine. They communicate more of each fighter's general strengths and weaknesses faster than the 3 numbers in UFC. Really, the stars and top moves are very similar to the letter grades, top 3 attributes and player archetypes you see in NBA 2k's rosters. If you're going to steal, steal from the best.
    Hopefully Ronda and Rumble being in this first ten means a strong throwback roster. I have to imagine Bruce Lee and the boxers will be up there, and they won't be alone.

    Don,t worry man, those spidermans fighters can,t throw spider webs, only punches and kicks.
    I assume that people who are complainning about Caf in ranked, knows that these cafs are the equivalent to B+ or A in Ufc 3.

    This is really weird system ever.

    I take an entirely different view. I,m a competitive online player since Fight Night Round 3 and the new system is by large the best to avoid that people who play with the same 3 or 4 top fighters all day. That,s was really frustating for 90% competitive players like me.

    Doesn't matter the game is designed for you to opt for your CAF with random weight class selection etc. Eventually that's all you'll see I promise you.

    Now, You have to fight against 5 star cafs in the ranked. I hope you keep having your different view. :waytogo:

    The only games i played with Cafs was Ea Sports Mma and Fight Night Champion /owc).
    Maybe I,m wrong, but i think majority of competitive players will play with real fighters in ranked.

    I'm okay with the star system, but I dunno what the hell they were thinking with some of those character models. Like, does somebody at EA have a grudge against Tatiana Suarez?

    By the looks of it they ave a grudge against the entire sport.
    When did they plan on releasing the rest of the Top 50? Seems odd they haven't kept updating based on how many days and other subjects (like career) they might want to cover.
    Hard to stay engaged when the cadence is all over the place.

    Okay so we haven't seen the full stats, and I know it not p4p top 50, but holy sh*t, that a weird ranking !
    Poirier just above Rousey and Suarez ? And both Rousey and Suarez over Cody, Reyes, AJ, Costa and Till ? WTF
    Also, everything they did to my boy Tony I take as a personal insult ! The same striking ranking as Curtis Blaydes ? His model is bad (not as bad as Till or Suarez but still)
    Holm is way too high overall (But she's overestimated IRL too so I guess that's okay) boys hear me out, she's 4-5 in the UFC, and her only wins are Rousey, Correia, Pennington and Marion Reneau..
    And those models, damn... They're worse than the models in Fifa where you have 22 players at the same time !
    I wasn't expecting much yet I am still disapointed...
    I would have actually been happier with just a reworked ground game, a non scripted career and an updated roster... Big sad
