How To Do a Takedown in UFC 4

UFC 4 is one of the most exciting fighting games available, but there is one aspect in particular that can take a while to master and is especially frustrating if you don’t know how to perform it. And that’s the takedown. To put it simply, if you ever want to win a fight on the ground, you will need to know how to perform a takedown effectively and how to defend against one. Here is everything you need to know about how to do a takedown in UFC 4. 

It’s important to note that takedowns work much differently in UFC 4 than they did in UFC 3, which is part of the reason why many players are still struggling with it. Although, it’s certainly worth learning because when you are able to pin your opponent down to the mat, you get a significant advantage in the fight. From this position, you can easily get more strikes in and deal a substantial amount of damage to your opponent.
