EA Sports UFC patch: TJ Dillashaw joins video game, laundry list of gameplay issues corrected


Goodbye phantom knockouts, hello "Chosen One."

EA Sports UFC video game was released last month to much fanfare. However, as is often the case with most major video game titles, no amount of beta testing can flesh out all the bugs, and it usually isn't until legions of fans start playing hours on end that some of them begin to surface.

And when they do, boy are they ugly.

The good news is, EA has been hard at work on its latest patch, which was released earlier today (July 22, 2014). The gang over at MMA News was kind enough to compile the entire list from the EA Sports UFC forums and much to the delight of TJ Dillashaw -- the promotion's 135-pound champion -- he's now on the roster.

That's not all.
