Watch this NFL-bound quarterback go bananas playing a video game

Former Alabama QB AJ McCarron goes crazy after winning a UFC video game fight.

Former Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron has won three national championships and is headed to the NFL. But his latest achievement? That's winning a UFC video game match.

In a hilarious video posted by his girlfriend Katherine Webb, you'll see McCarron go absolutely bananas after finally winning a match following four nights of trying. There's a lot of yelling and high-fiving, but no swearing.

The game in question appears to be UFC Undisputed 3, which McCarron is playing on Xbox 360. I can't wait to see how McCarron reacts when he's drafted later this year.

This is apparently worth writing about, but there's somehow no coverage on the rumor that Respawn is bribing the gaming press. Seems odd.

Here, you can see the former Alabama QB in his natural habitat.  He shows off his mighty video game skills in hopes to impress the female.

@xsonicchaos  because they are not, playing titan fall its easy an 8.0 in beta.  Don't have to bribe when your game is solid.  This stupid conspiracy theories are getting out of hand.

@The_Gaming_Baby  It's a friday and apparently no new games have revealed that the resolution on the Xbox One is less than that of the PS4.

I'm not saying they are, but it's weird how Gamespot is covering TV boxes (and throw in some gaming babble to stay true to the format), reporting on troll websites and twitter messages, but not a rumor as "insulting" as this? I'm just saying it's weird.
