UFC talent protests after it’s revealed a DWCS athlete will make it to UFC 4 game before them

UFC president Dana White was the target of criticism after announcing that a DWCS prospect instead of an actual UFC athlete to their latest game: ‘UFC 4’.

EA Sports UFC 4 is the latest MMA video game from EA Sports that was released in 2020. The game features over 200 unique athletes ranging from the old and modern days. Recently, UFC head honcho Dana White tried to add something different to the game’s roster.

The 53-year-old is planning to add one prospect from Dana White’s Contender Series to UFC 4. White announced that he is already working with EA to add this DWCS athlete but hasn’t dropped a name. White took to his Twitter account to share a clip announcing his plan.

“What’s up everybody. There are two episodes left of the Contender Series. This season has been awesome… And one of the things that is really cool right now is we are working with EA Sports and I’m going to announce one fighter that will be added to the video game [UFC 4] after the season finale next week. So let me know who you think it should be.” White said in a video shared to Twitter.

Dana White will reveal the new playable character after DWCS season finale on September 27. However, instead of fans getting hyped up, several UFC athletes jumped to the comment section to blast White.

UFC prospect Terrance McKinney who is 3-1 in the UFC hasn’t been added to the game. He replied,

“How are they gonna put in a contender series fighter but leave us out.”

Another hot prospect ,Muhammad Mokaev also said, “Let Dana know.”

UFC women’s bantamweight Jessy Jess who has been around since 2017 also weighed in and said, “I’ve had 8 fights and been with the company for 5yrs but not in it either haha.”
