I remember playing the Unidsputed 1 demo and being able to KO someone right after the bell rang. Haven't been able to do that in this one so far. Definitely seems like they toned it down a lot and made the damage system more consistent.
Ha yeah man, know what you mean, I remember that cheat on the first UFC game, you could give your created character 100 out of 100 for everything. That was awesome. KOs in under 5 secs were fun.
