"It appears as if there will only be a difference of 9-11 points between the top fighters and the bottom fighters in each weight class. On top of this, no fighter even reaches an 80 overall ranking. In the world of sports games 1-99 has become the standard, with elite athletes normally reaching that 95 and up range.
Either THQ and the UFC are trying to say they truly feel any fighter has a shot against anyone at all time, or the fighters skills have been watered down to create a more balanced experience. We hope that through the course of the year that these numbers will be adjusted as needed, or that players themselves will be able to create their own fighter updates."
