These glitches will make you want to play UFC, probably not for the right reasons

Chris Plante co-founded Polygon in 2012 as editor-at-large and is now editor-in-chief. He also created and occasionally teaches NYU’s Introduction to Games Journalism course.

EA Sports UFC is now available, and though our review is still in the works, we do have a special video to show you.

The introduction to this YouTube video by user Tommy Toe Hold claims these glitches are uncommon. I wish that weren't true. I wish that a switch in the options menu allowed for a Glitch Fighting mode. The result would be like a modern Midway sports game, which is to say refreshing and fantastic.

Watching these realistic fighters gleefully flop about the ring has me wondering, whatever happened to arcade-style sports games?

Once you've watched the video, be sure to visit our sister site SB Nation. They've turned some of the video's best moments into GIFs.
