Chikadze and Ankalaev added to EA UFC 4
Giga Chikadze’s MMA career began in 2015. He quickly amassed a 7-2 record before making his UFC debut in September 2019. Chikadze quickly rose through the featherweight division, besting grizzled veterans in Cub Swanson and Edson Barboza. He finished them with his trademark “Giga Kick” to the body. His last fight was a unanimous decision loss to Calvin Kattar in an early fight of the year candidate.
Magomed Ankalaev is one of Dagestan, Russia’s newest stars. Ankalaev was 9-0 before making his UFC debut. He lost to Paul Craig due to a last-ditch effort in a fight otherwise dominated by Ankalaev. However, he rallied to go on a six-fight win streak. His last win was against former title challenger Volkan Oezdemir. He will go against Thiago Santos at UFC Fight Night 203.
Despite the solid additions, fans are still a bit leery of the progress EA has made in UFC 4. Fans want more fighters in the game like Sean Strickland, Kai Kara-France, and Marlon ‘Chito’ Vera. Talks have already begun about EA UFC 5 despite its predecessor only being a year old.
EA has already been making waves with potentially bringing back Fight Night, however, it will be a while before that happens. Nonetheless, Chikadze and Ankalaev are great additions to UFC 4.
Let us know how you’re feeling below about Giga Chikadze and Magomed Ankalaev’s addition to the game. Who will you use first? Who do you want to see added to EA UFC 4 in the future?
