Easy reversals hints:
-When on the ground with your opponent and they try to make a transition, tap the Right Analog-stick Left or Right to get a reversal. If unsuccessful, you should still block the transition.
-When on top of your opponent on the ground, execute a punch or knee, then tap the Right Analog-stick Left or Right, and repeat. This will block them from transitioning to a better position and help you advance to a better position or maintain a good position.
Getting doctor to stop a fight:
Choose a good fighter and select a created fighter with no stats as your opponent in Exhibition mode under the Beginner difficulty setting. Set the number of rounds to five. When the match begins, clinch with your opponent. Get the clinch to a single collar tie so that you only have one hand on them with their head up. Try to move them up against the cage, then repeatedly hit them with weak punches. You will not rock them. However, the referee will eventually stop the match for the doctor to check on your opponent. They should say your opponent can still fight. Clinch with your opponent again and keep punching them. The doctor will eventually stop the fight. Note: This can also be done from rubber guard.
Prevent stat decay:
-Your stats will start decaying if they are not at 30, 50, or 70 in Career mode, unless an attribute point is added to them before the yellow bar completely disappears. The yellow bar represents how close each stats is to decaying. Monitor your stats and either leave them at 30, 50, or 70, or assure that you add at least one attribute point to them before the yellow bar disappears and they begin decaying each week.
-Once your created fighter's stats are at 100 in Career mode, get all desired stats to 70, 50, or 30 to prevent the stats from decaying below those levels. Then, accumulate as many points as possible from Free Sparring and save them until Career mode is almost over in 2021. Note: You must fight for twelve years. Then, use your saved attribute points to increase your fighter's stats as desired. Once Career mode ends, you can still use your created fighter in other modes, including online. By doing this, you won't lose stats due to decay and will have a fighter with high attributes after Career mode is over.
Easy sparring points:
Save the game before sparring in Career mode. If you receive bad results after the sparring session is over, exit Career mode without saving. Then, select "Continue Career" and spar again. Repeat the process until you have a decent outcome and continue.
Press Right to touch gloves during the sequence where the fighters are given the option to touch gloves before the match starts, or right when the match begins.
"Kay, Tee, Eff, Oh!" trophy hint:
