UFC Fighter Cut From Video Game Due to Wild Hairdo

Ultimate Fighting Championship's UFC 2009 Undisputed is the first game from the series in five years, and it's already running into some hairy territory. Despite its notable good reviews, the anticipated game is already getting flack for cutting popular lightweight Clay Guida -- all because of his 'do.

According to Joystiq (which, from what we gather, heard about the story as originally printed in Fight! Magazine), Guida's trademarked locks are causing "clipping problems" for the video game's producers at THQ. They offered the fighter money to get a haircut, but he apparently refused and consequently got axed from the game.

Note: This is PS3 and Xbox360, we are talking about. They couldn't spare a couple of pixels for some 3D hair? Particularly considering the quality of the above graphics? If we were to let unruly locks dictate playing capacity, we'd lose some crucial greats, including Troy Polamalu, Cloud Strife, and even Knuckles the Echidna. [From: Joystiq, via Fight! Magazine]
