EA UFC 4 Update 9.00 March 4 Patch Notes:

UFC veteran Vincente Luque makes his entrance to the digital octagon with a 4 star overall rating bolstered by a 5 stars health rating and 4 stars for striking.

In this update we’ve improved the matchmaking system for online matches to discourage users from repeatedly leaving early. This will be done via a timed delay added preventing the user from entering matchmaking for a set amount of time. Additionally, you will notice that we’ve updated multiple other areas of gameplay that are outlined below.
