This has to be the best realistic fighter game i've ever played. The career mode is superb, sure the create a fighter could have more options, but show me a game that does. The career mode is the most fun i've ever had by bringing your guy up through the ranks, then once you finally make it onto the main card of the actual PPVs it gets tough. I went 6-0 with 6 TKOs. Then i lost my next 2, won another 2 and then Dan Henderson put me outta my misery with one punch. You never really know if you are gonna pull the victory out or if you will fall to your opponent. This game is a must have for any UFC fan or a fan of realistic fighters. No button mashing here, you need to know what your doing to stay alive.

I actually do MMA and i only got this cause i thought "what the f i love this sport and i love ufc i might as well get it" and i fell in love and its really cool with the fact that its so rrealistic when it comes to everything. whether is striking or throws or even just the jiu jitsu part and tyhe ground game, this game has real moves and real transitions. i give this a 200 because its awesome and it is worth so much more than gamefly says aha

Where do I begin? This game can be broken into two parts. Online, and Offline. Let's start with offline. You have a career mode, that isn't bad, but could have easily been better. Spending your "weeks" before fights is time consuming, and hardly exciting. You spar, traing, rest, and do photo shoots. None of which makes you feel like you are accomplishing anything. The actual fights are generally one sided, and the flash KO's can become annoying, also the computer controlled fighters never seem to want to submit. Overall it isn't too bad though, because it prepares you for online play.
Onto the frustrating fun! Going online....You play a ranked match, and can get thrown into matches with people well beyond your level. My 1st fight as a level 1 0-0 fighter wa against a rather unfriendly level 15 fighter that appeared to have a sticky controller. The fight started and suddenly I have Brock Lesner running across the ring and throwing more L1 punches at me in 1 round than all the rocky films ever. I spent my 1st round online running, and blocking. Round 2 more swinging for the fences, and more counter attempts by me. late in the 2nd one of the over 100 haymakers thrown my way finally connected, and I was outy cold. My opponent was nice enough to send me a message telling me how bad I sucked. I then declined his friend invite.
2nd fight I found myself against a level 5 fighter, and with a little luck, and a lot of swearing I managed to get him to submit to an armbar. The one thing I took away from the 1st two fights I had was a painful face from laughing so hard.
