Today’s the day: EA Sports finally released the full roster that will be available at launch for EA Sports UFC 2, which will be released on March 15th and is available for pre-order now. The fine folks at Operation Sports put together a plain text based listing of the roster, which you can read at the end of the post. There are a handful of somewhat surprising omissions, like  Albert Tumenov, Patrick Cote, Jessica Aguilar, Evan Dunham, Louis Smolka, and a welterweight version of Jorge Masvidal, but I would expect them to be included later via patch/free content update like how EA updated the first EA Sports UFC game.

Also, Benson Henderson, who just signed with Bellator, is still in the game at both lightweight and welterweight. This is a departure from the first game, which was originally supposed to have Jake Shields, but he was removed after being cut and signing with World Series of Fighting.

By the way: The trailer for the game’s new modes came out a few days ago and is embedded at the top of this post.

But enough with all that. Here’s the full roster listing:
