You're kidding me. Two flush shots at 205 or heavyweight in EA MMA and you had to use strategy to survive being put down, in UFC 2010 it was left hook, right elbow, right head kick until it was the first one to fall basically.
UFC is the ultimate rock'em sock'em robots.
It also was popular to the body. Also, don't forget the broken parry right high kick that was like an insta-KO.
And as I said, the striking in 2010 didn't really exist. It was broken and every fight was a wrestling and clinch fest.
2009 was the best game for striking and overall play.
