"Incredible Bone Flexibility" And Other Funny EA Sports UFC Glitches Revealed

Check out this video that shows off some funny glitches for the recently released Xbox One and PlayStation 4 game.

[UPDATE] It's come to our attention that someone who worked on the game says this footage is from a beta demo version of EA Sports UFC. As such, you may not encounter these bugs in your copy of the game.

The original story is below.

Yesterday we published our EA Sports UFC review, but here's something new you can watch about the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 MMA game. YouTube user Tommy Toe Hold has put together a video that collects some of EA Sports UFC's funniest glitches. It's not just a glitch highlight reel, either. Presenters pretending to be Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg attempt to explain just what the heck is going on, and it's all really very good and worth a watch.

According to Tommy Toe Hold, the glitches you see in the video are pretty uncommon.

We gave EA Sports UFC a 5 out of 10, praising its graphical prowess, but lamenting its combat systems for being flawed. "EA Sports UFC manages to make only certain aspects of MMA both fun and functional, forcing most fights to play out in a familiar, brawling fashion," wrote reviewer Josiah Renaudin. "Even if you do enjoy swinging for the fences, there's just not enough content here to justify the full retail price. It might look the part of a world champion, but EA Sports UFC will need a great deal of fine-tuning before it's up to snuff."

This funny EA Sports UFC video comes just days after another YouTuber showed us that all kinds of video games are even more awesome when we watch them with wrestling commentary.

OK, that had me in stitches.

The bugs can't be as rare as they claim, given how long the game's been out.

It certainly looks like it kicks ass though.  Invisible, 20ft high, flexible spasming ghost ass.

Hey EA, listen closely.

Finish.  Release.

That's the correct chronological order.  Write it down.

That is perhaps one of the funniest glitch videos I've seen in a lonnnng time and I run into my fair share on various platforms. This video is even comparable to the one I'm in (Youtube search, Funniest Kid Ever GTA 5) and I'm the guy laughing.

To be fair to the UFC game, I played it for quite a while and never saw anything like this. About 60 fights in fact.

"According to Tommy Toe Hold, the glitches you see in the video are pretty uncommon."

Yeah, but he also says "this game actually kicks ass sorts of ass" so he's obviously lying.

I especially like the "shadow boxing", fighting against an opponent that is just air.

@liquidbutter The guy makes his living making youtube videos that contain UFC content, so he basically has to put that in there.

Indeed they say the glitchs are uncommon but we saw a lot of glitchs in the same fight between Jones and Gustafsson.

Maybe they used the same fighters often in a lot of differents fights, maybe not...
