UFC undisputed – “get a hair cut please”

by Victor ‘rOgue’ Vieira

If you have been a follower of this brutal but beautiful sport , you might have noticed something or should I say someone missing from THQ’s UFC 2009 Undisputed – “the guy with the hair”.

Despite his popularity as a lightweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship organization, MMA fighter, the charasmatic  Clay ‘the carpenter’ Guida who is a big fan favourite with UFC fans.

According to a report from Fight! Magazine, Guida’s long hair caused clipping and collision detection issues in the game that made his character nearly unplayable. The piece also claims that THQ had reportedly even offered Guida money to cut his hair so that they could keep him in the game, but Guida would not.

UFC 2009 Undisputed‘s developer, Yuke’s Osaka, is also said to have had clipping issues with southpaw stances for left-handed fighters like Rich Franklin. To fix this, the game displays southpaw fighters with a right-hand stance.

Anyway, despite this hugely popular real-life fighter being left out of the ‘lighweight’ category, the game is still soaring in sales figures and should continue to do so.
