In UFC 5, the athlete models have taken a significant leap towards realism compared to earlier versions.

The developers want to make it clear that they're not celebrating violence; rather, they aim to mirror what fans witness on television during real fights. While their pursuit of realism is paramount, they won't include the most severe injuries like compound fractures, deeming it a step too far. Players, however, can still expect to see blood pooling on the ring floor and blood spray as a result of punches, with the crimson fluid settling on the attire and skin of both athletes.
