EA Sports UFC 2 serves as the sequel to the previous game, and was released for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One in March 15th, 2016 in America, and March 17th, 2016 in Europe.

The game features a massive 325 character roster (counting alternate versions) as well as 12 arenas. With Mike Goldberg & Joe Rogan calling the action, Mario Yamasaki & Yves Lavinge returning as referees alongside newly added referees Dan Miragliotta & Herb Dean, and Bruce Buffer returning as a ring announcer.

The arenas are as follows:

Air Canada Centre; Bell Centre; Honda Center; Madison Square Garden; MGM Grand; The O2 Arena; Prudential Center; Rio Arena; Saitama Super Arena; Staples Center; Toyota Center; United Center.

As for the roster, all 9 weight classes return, alongside a newly added weight class: The Women's Strawweight Division. As of now, thanks to patches and fighter updates, 279 unique fighters are playable with 46 alternate versions of existing fighters. An additional 22 male and/or female fighters can also be created to expand the roster count to 347 fighters. Like the previous game, additional fighters can be unlocked by completing certain tasks. Bruce Lee can be unlocked by either completing Career Mode (which will also unlock Bas Rutten, Kazushi Sakuraba and Modern & Classic versions of Mike Tyson as well) or having to save data from the previous game. You can also unlock Lee, Rutten, Sakuraba & Tyson as DLC by purchasing them in the Store. To unlock Joe Rogan, at the start screen, press Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, Circle/B, Cross/A, Options/Menu (Start), and if done correctly, you'll hear a Joe Rogan soundbyte, which means he's now a playable character.
