UFC 4 has been updated, and its release has caused quite a stir in the gaming community.

The 26-year-old MMA fighter goes by the moniker “Ahalkalakets,” and he has an impressive 8-2 record in the UFC. At UFC Fight Night 216 last year, Arman Tsarukyan faced off against Damir Ismagulov and came out on top. A unanimous verdict gave him the victory.

Unbeaten featherweight challenger Ilia Topuria joins the already stellar lineup in the next update for EA Sports UFC 4. The Georgian-Spanish 26-year-old fighter has been making waves in the UFC because of his excellent grappling and cardio.

El Matador has been widely known as a formidable fighter thanks to his perfect 5-0 record in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. His most recent victory came at UFC 282 last year, when he submitted Bryce Mitchell. Topuria’s next bout is scheduled for UFC Jacksonville next month, and his opponent will be UFC veteran Josh Emmett.

The UFC’s parent company, Endeavour Group, set to sell Florida’s IMG Academy

UFC parent company Endeavour Group Holdings announced on Tuesday (April 25) that it would sell IMG Academy, a residential sports-training programme, to the Asian arm of private equity firm EQT for US$1.25 billion in an all-cash transaction.

Two of the biggest names in wrestling and entertainment have joined forces in a new publicly listed company. The transaction comes only days after Endeavor’s UFC announced it would merge with World Wrestling Entertainment.

The partnership between IMG Academy and EQT portfolio business Nord Anglia Education will bring world-class education to students in 33 nations, according to a report by The Business Times.

Venus Williams, Serena Williams, and Andre Agassi are just a few of the famous athletes that got their start at the institution.

BPEA EQT, the acquirer, has expressed interest in the academy’s plans to expand its educational offerings and its international presence, particularly in Asia.

IMG Academy in Florida is a 600-acre facility where they train athletes and also offer online instruction and help with recruitment. In 2022, it helped more than 30,000 people get on college sports teams.
