EA Sports UFC adds TJ Dillashaw and two more fighters in free content update



tjdillashaweaAdd EA Sports to the list of folks who didn’t expect TJ Dillashaw to upset Renan Barao for the UFC bantamweight title at UFC 174 this past May in Vegas. If they had, they certainly would’ve included him in their next-gen console offering slated for release the following month.

Everything always works out in the end though fight fans. EA has decided to include the current bantamweight kingpin, along with fellow bantamweight contender Takeya Mizugaki and welterweight Tyron Woodley, in their first free content update. The update will also include an open grand prix tournament option and much, much more. Here are just some of the updates included in the free updated (which dropped earlier today) via

• Touch Gloves: Users will now have the ability to manually make their fighter touch gloves (or choose not to touch gloves) before beginning to fight by pressing L2 on PS4 or LT on Xbox One. This can be done at the start of every round, or anytime the ref stands the fighters up.

• Finish the Fight: During a knockout, the attacking fighter can jump on their downed opponent and “finish the fight” by delivering extra strikes as the knockout occurs.

• Sprawls: The defending fighter now sprawls when successfully defending against a power takedown.

• Clinch Break from the Cage: Fighters now have the ability to break out of a clinch when pressed against the fence by pressing the L3 button.

• Power Takedowns and Sweeps: Power takedowns and side control sweeps have been removed from fighters who would not normally have them.

• Stamina: Stamina no longer regenerates if the user holds block. The user will also take a larger stamina penalty if hit while weak blocking.

• Sweep Defense: The dominant fighter in the Full Guard position now has a larger window to reverse the Full Guard sweep to Mount.
