Here’s what Matthew Wells, Ant Walker, and Drake Riggs think about Khamzat Chimaev being added to the UFC 4 game. Do we think he’s rated too high or not high enough?
Wells says it raises some question marks. He compares Chimaev’s ratings to that of the champion, Kamaru Usman. Usman surprisingly has the same grappling and striking ratings as Chimaev.
Walker comments that EA Sports/UFC 4 shouldn’t just be assuming his ability. He’s only been competing against regional-level competition even in the UFC so far. He reflects on when Adesanya was added to the previous UFC game and how his stats weren’t necessarily that high immediately.
Riggs comments that Chimaev’s health rating could even be higher than four-and-a-half stars. He’s been pretty much untouchable in his UFC career so far.
