One of the fans made a joke about the fact that Pereira is currently ranked higher than Adesanya by portraying it as yet another incident of ‘Poatan’ doing something to his former adversary:

Welcoming. Conor’s model needs to be fixed.

Despite the fact that the announcement of UFC 5 was met with a great deal of excitement at the time, the level of interest shown by fans in the game appears to have decreased, and it is now receiving a variety of perspectives.

Fans are going to be curious to watch who happens to become one of the most played characters based on their performance in the octagon as 2024 begins with a number of fights that are going to be among the most anticipated.

UFC 5 and the EA Sports cover curse

A persistent superstition has persisted ever since EA Sports became the official producer for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) video game series. This superstition asserts that fighters who appear on the game’s covers are more likely to suffer unfortunate events. There has been no deviation from this pattern in UFC 5, as every single competitor featured on the cover has since been unsuccessful in the octagon.
