How Are UFC Fights Judged?
In the UFC, three judges evaluate each fight from a different viewpoint of the ring and score each fighter with up to ten points per round. A fighter must get ten points and his opponent must get less than ten in order to win the round.
Judges are charged with evaluating a fighter's performance with special attention to these areas: striking, grappling, control of the ring/fighting area, aggressiveness, and defense. The judges must also consider where the majority of the fight took place; if the fighters spent most of the time on the floor of the ring, grappling technique is weighted higher. If both fighters stayed on their feet for most of the round, the quantity and quality of strikes are of a higher priority.
EA SPORTS UFC 3 judging criteria has been updated to reflect the latest Unified Rules of UFC.
What Styles of Martial Arts Are Included In MMA and the UFC?
MMA is a blend of several traditional martial arts styles that include various striking, grappling, and submission wrestling techniques. Some of the most notable stylistic influences include Boxing, Kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do, Freestyle Wrestling, Brazlian Jiu-Jitsu, and Judo.
Each of these arts has specific advantages and drawbacks. For example, Boxing lacks an effective counter to a leg kick, and Muay Thai is poor at defending takedowns due to the static nature of its stance. The best MMA fighters glean the most useful parts from the various disciplines and blend them into the ideal style for the sport.
The advanced technology behind EA SPORTS UFC 3 lets players customize their play style and choose a fighter with attributes that suit that style best.
