For the long serving fans of UFC I don’t even have to explain who Royce Gracie is but for those who don’t know he’s a vital part of history and he’s in this game. The winner of the first ever UFC tournament and the only three time tournament winner will be playable by doing one of two things. You can get your hands on Gracie by either completing the Career mode on at least Pro difficulty or pre-ordering EA Sports UFC from GAME for instant access.
