UFC Fighters Don’t Get Paid For EA UFC Game, But Mike Tyson And Bruce Lee Do

Video game publication titan Electronic Arts recently released their latest installment in the UFC video game series. EA Sports UFC 3 hit stores Feb. 2, 2018 and is available on PS4 and XBOX One. With that in mind, it would appear that only a select few of the game’s roster are actually compsensated for the use of their likeness in the game.

EA Sports UFC 3 features a roster chock full of exciting playable characters. From UFC superstar Conor McGregor to UFC Hall of Famer Forrest Griffin, players can take control of some of the most notable members of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

However, many fighters have since been coming forward over social media to reveal that they are not being compensated for the game’s use of their likenesses. Check it out in the social media posts below:

Now, after almost 10-years with the UFC, Bellator Tournament participant Roy “Big Country” Nelson reveals that a pair of non MMA fighters who appear in the game, are actually compensated for it.

On The MMA Hour Nelson stated, “Mike Tyson I know, get’s a pretty big cut, and he’s not even an MMA Fighter. Bruce Lee even gets a cut.”

“I heard Curtis Blaydes [was upset about not being in the game], but he shouldn’t be upset. I’d rather have my likeness.”
