    I liked almost everything about EA MMA except the weirdly fast movement while hook spamming. That was the biggest fault in that one IMO was how often you'd end up fighting a 100 rated CAF who would hook spam body/head and end the fights in like 20 seconds. When people used legit guys and didnt fight like tards it was a very fun game

    Ufc 2 also HEAVILY favored the grappler, making it soooo easy to score TD's compared to ufc 1 and no way to really punish for them effectively. UFC 1 had TDD perfect, imo. If you were a good TD artist you could get it, if you had a TD artist vs a striker with good TDD you had to fight for it and set it up. Ufc 3 is kind of a middle ground, although scoring td's frm the clinch is mighty simple.

    The one where you hold the stick left or right and whoever has the highest grappling stats wins that minigame

    It’s my personal mission in this game to win one fight with big Tim Johnson

    His clinch hugging must at least be rated high!

    Just used Ortega for the first time, true to life his hands are slow as shit.

    I fought Aldo and the guy literally just wanted to stand 1 inch from me bobbing and weaving, he was easily countering every punch. I started throwing body knees and he had no answer. All he wanted to do was spam duck duck hook hook hook and when i stopped punching he literally ate about 60 knees the body and got destroyed for 3 full rounds without trying to adjust.

    Have to be able to adjust. I'm losing so much more than any prior mma game. So hard to win consistently in this one for me

    Practice breaking the block during rocks if you haven't yet, that has been huge

    So you can throw infinite knee stomps and it's not punishable. Can't check it or catch it. Just played a jones user I was glover who moves like hes stuck in mud. I was helpless. He just spammed it over and over and when i would block it and counter he would throw an uppercut which would stop my counter due to the speed difference. Very frustrating, not sure how to counter it

    Try feinting to draw it out and be ready to counter with a leg kick of your own and then go high after a couple this works wonders on people I find fighting annoying like that.

    Feint will open up so many other options just by getting them to react then they don't know if you're going to feint or come in with a combo. Fought a Yoel last night had to feint a bunch because he kept catching me coming in with kicks, feint drew the kicks out and I knock him out with a perfectly timed headkick of my own.

    Felt rewarding as fuck and how I felt a fight between two good stand up players should play out

    I do feint a lot, its super effective. I think I could have won if I had gus or someone quicker but man he was just so slow every counter attempt left him a window to hit me first. I made him miss a lot just couldnt consistently make him pay

    I don't know. 55USD is just under 40GBP. That's a saving of 10£, for the same thing. If it was 40£ I probably would buy it.

    Yep only some guys unfortunately. Mostly Muay Thai guys but they gave it to others who have landed knees in fights like Romero, Machida, Gus, and Ortega that i've noticed so far. Doesn't do a ton of damage but it's quick and adds up if they wont back off and stop crowding

    Im on a 10 fight losing streak, I keep getting knocked out. I dont know what I am doing. I am outlanding my opponents by 50+ strikes but get rocked everytime they touch me. I am catching them with hooks when they sway, uppercuts when they duck and just cant seem to do any damage. I am broken lol.

    Haha 12 now. I cant figure it out. I was beating top 100 guys and had 4 title defenses yesterday. I need to figure out what I am doing wrong and I am just not seeing it.

    The sad way I keep losing is I'll get a knockdown and they get up fresher than me and usually take me down or hit a counter strike. Crazy how the knockdowns as often as they are don't result in more stamina loss.

    try attacking the body when you have them rocked, that way you'll have the stamina profit. If you don't have a good chance to break the block then body shots are the way to go IMO, then next time they might try to block the body shots and leave the head open
