EA Sports acquired the license for the Ultimate Fighting Championship brand after THQ shuttered its doors, and with the release of EA Sports UFC, fight fans will finally be getting back into the Octagon after a two-year wait. This will be the first MMA game to be released on the Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One

The developers dropped a bombshell when they revealed that Bruce Lee would be a playable character in the game. Lee is often credited as being a major influence on MMA, and he undoubtedly played a major role in popularizing and spreading martial arts across the globe.

Joining Lee are a number of retired UFC legends such as Royce Gracie, Chuck Liddell and BJ Penn. However, a number of notable names were left off the list. So, who else should make the cut?
