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?”

Abdelaziz says Zabit is a ‘Much Better Version of Bruce Lee’

abdelaziz-zabit-better-version-bruce-lee

How DARE you, sir! Ali Abdelaziz claims that Zabit Magomedsharipov is a ‘Much better version of Bruce Lee”. I know that this guy supports his clients, but you do not take shots at Bruce Lee.

People like to argue that fighters of today could beat the fighters of old. It’s downright insulting that they lose sight of how pioneers paved the way for these superstars of today.

Take Royce Gracie for example. If there was no Royce Gracie, there is no MMA. Period. There are literally thousands of people that would pretzel him up today, but it doesn’t matter. He was the spark that got the BJJ ball rolling and influenced a movement.

Bruce Lee made everyone want to be a fighter. He was an icon who literally changed a generation. Saying anyone today is a better version of him…

Again, I say, how dare you.
