Head Movement & Strike Vulnerability
Use the right stick to dip your head and evade incoming strikes. This year in UFC 4, you can now move your head while blocking (hold R2 / RT + right stick). Some core punches throw more effectively from specific head positions.
Be Careful: Moving your head into an opponent’s strike (such as ducking into an uppercut or dodging into a flying knee) increases your damage taken.
While throwing a strike, your own strike vulnerability increases: in other words, you take more damage if you’re hit while attempting to throw your own strike. Time your strikes carefully!
