Can’t get enough Khabib Nurmagomedov in your UFC 4 playing experience? EA Sports has you covered.

Today, the video game developer revealed that a new Prime Icon edition of Nurmagomedov has been added to the playable roster along with five other MMA legends captured at the peak of their careers: Michael Bisping, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Alistair Overeem, Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre.

The latest update for the official UFC video game also includes several customization items along with the new playable characters. Here’s the announcement from EA Sports.

Dropping with the six PRIME ICONS, is a free, limited-time PRIME ICONS customization pack that includes a Khabib PRIME ICONS themed profile customization with new backgrounds, and profile pictures as well as a PRIME ICONS profile picture, background, and two flairs. In addition to this new vanity are PRIME ICON Muay Thai shorts, board shorts, and Vale Tudo shorts sets.

In addition to the six new prime icons, current UFC lightweight contender Islam Makhachev (21-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) has also been added to the game for the first time. The longtime teammate of Nurmagomedov is currently riding a nine-fight winning streak and sits at No. 6 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie lightweight rankings.
