Khamzat ‘Borz’ Chimaev is the latest star to be added into the EA Sports UFC 4 roster after patch 5.0

EA Sports UFC 4 shared details about patch 5.0 and also how they included Khamzat Chimaev to their roster.

The Swedish star is one of the rising faces in the promotion and is undefeated in his MMA career. Khamzat is ranked #15 in the Welterweight division and has been included in the game. Borz, as he is called, posted a tweet and asked fans who would he takedown in the game.

Chimaev faces Leon Edwards in his next fight and his stats aren’t all that bad in UFC 4. He is a 4-star Welterweight and has 4.5 stars in terms of health and grappling.

Chimaev isn’t the only UFC star added to the roster in this update. Megan Anderson was also included in patch 5.0 and the Aussie is also 4-stars, just like Chimaev.

EA sports shared a list of other changes made to the game, ranging from how the game is played to extra customisation features.

This is the second big update from EA Sports after patch 4.0 which included three new faces. Askar Askarov, Brock Lesnar and Jennifer Maia were the fighters added in that patch.

Ready to smash!

Borz is known for wanting to “smash” opponents and this addition should go down well with the UFC fans.

While some weren’t impressed after seeing Lesnar being included, it is a different story for Chimaev. The 26-year-old has been exceptional since making his UFC debut and hasn’t been scared to call out the big names.

He has Israel Adesanya in his sights and has taunted the undefeated Middleweight Champion several times.

While that fight might take some time to set up, UFC fans can enjoy taking Chimaev out for a spin.

Many fans were excited at using Chimaev and here are some of their reactions from social media:
