UFC 3 Stand Up Basics

Learn how to use the new striking system featuring Real Player Motion Tech.



Creative Director Brian Hayes gives his tips for success when it comes to striking in EA SPORTS UFC 3.

When striking, you can attack your opponent's head, body, or legs – each of which has its own health meter. The more damage you do to a region over a short period of time, the more likely you are to create a health event like a stun, knock down, or knockout.

However, it's not as simple as throwing as many strikes as you can. Your fighter has a stamina meter that will be depleted every time you throw a strike. The bigger the strike, the more stamina your fighter will lose. Missing strikes will also cost a lot more than landing them. The lower your stamina, the less damage you will cause, and the more damage you will take.
