Conor McGregor – better watch out, it’s the glitches that’ll get yas

13 Jul 2015

We’ve just seen Conor McGregor take on Chad Mendes in the biggest fight of the year, but there are still opportunities to revel in the sport through a series of bizarre glitches in the video game, EA UFC.

The game is quite popular among UFC fans given its reasonably accurate portrayal of the violent sport, with added commentary from the sport’s two biggest talking heads, Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg.

And yet, every now and then, something hilarious happens that is clearly not intentional – serious glitches that you really wish were actual features in the game.

Teleporting out of the ring, growing in size and invisible fighting are just some of the glitches seen so far by players.

And, thankfully, the guys over at Noober Goober Gaming on YouTube have been collating some of the funniest ones they’ve come across.

Sit back and enjoy the downright silliness.
