In honor of International Fight Week, Electronic Arts has launched a UK Fighter Bundle for UFC 4, which finally adds Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett to the game roster.
Since UFC 4’s release in August 2020, developer EA Vancouver has continued to expand upon the MMA title’s roster of fighters.
The team deployed a UFC 4 patch in February that brought featherweight Giga Chikadze and light heavyweight champ Magomed Ankalaev to the Octagon, for instance.
Fans of the sport remain as eager as ever to see a few more of their favorites join the in-game rankings. Fortunately, four heavy-hitters have joined the fray in a newly released bundle.
Paddy Pimblett finally debuts in UFC 4
UFC 276 on Saturday, July 2 will help cap off International Fight Week but EA Sports UFC 4 is honoring the annual celebration in its own way.
Starting today, June 30, UFC 4 players can access the UK Fighter Bundle, an update introducing Paddy Pimblett, Molly McCann, Tom Aspinall, and Paul Craig.

Such an update comes at the perfect time, too, considering all four UFC rising stars will participate in London UFC Fight Night on Saturday, July 23.
Electronic Arts noted in a press release that Paddy Pimblett and the other three additions to UFC 4 serve as a response to “popular demand” from the fan community.
The first EA Sports UFC release hit store shelves in 2014; since then, the publisher has deployed a new entry every two years. Given UFC 4’s arrival in the summer of 2020, an announcement of UFC 5 seems somewhat overdue.
Unsubstantiated rumors from industry insider Tom Henderson suggest the fifth installment will launch sometime in 2023. However, EA has yet to so much as tease its future plans for the UFC-branded fighting series.
