EA UFC 3 content update. We get Gaethje’s ‘Rolling Thunder’.

content-update-rolling-thunder

EA Sports UFC 3 and added some new fighters to their roster in their latest special content update. David Branch, Tai Tuivasa, and Zabit Magomedsharipov have all been added to the game in the recently released downloadable content. Like you, I was waiting for Tai Tuivasa to do a ‘Shooey’, but alas, it didn’t come.

They did, however, show signature moves from fighters like Justin Gaethje. They put his ‘Rolling Thunder’ in there but left out the backflip. Also, they show Zabit’s outside trip takedown and it’s a beauty.

With these new players, it looks like it’s going to be really fun for fans of the game. However, fans were disappointed in the comments section on YouTube. Everybody was asking,

“Where is Israel Adesanya?”

David Branch calls out Jacare in a very martial artsy way

branch-jacare-artsy

Davis Branch cuts a promo that looks like it was straight out of a Hollywood movie. His callout was directed at Jacare Souza and it was definitely one of the more artsy fartsy callouts we’ve seen. Branch even got his students involved, making it feel that much more Karate Kid-ish.

“Jacare. What’s up with this fight? Let’s make this thing happen. We were supposed to fight two times before, but they were short notice. Now, we’ve got all the time in the world. Right now I’m (ranked) number seven and you’re number five.”

Branch goes on with the callout and involves his students in his skit. They start doing the Jacare hand clap that imitates an alligator.

I can’t tell if this callout is incredible or incredibly lame. However, I am definitely interested now.

Respectful Twitter

This whole respectful Twitter thing could catch on, maybe not. It’s pretty uncommon these days for fighters to take to Twitter and show each other respect while issuing a challenge. We’ve become numb to the typical trash talking back and forth until the fight is made, and then after months of ferocious banter, two fighters … Read moreAn actual respectful Twitter call-out and a calm respectful response, yikes!
