AusGamers has gone hands-on with a new build of EA Sports UFC and writes:
"If I had to put my finger on a single issue, I'd say it's the way the game treats striking defence. Players can put their hands up to block punches and they become essentially invincible. They still take some damage, but it's such a miniscule amount that it's a mistake to think it's worth your while. You lose more stamina attacking than you do blocking, so a player can just block until the cows come home and they'll essentially negate all your strikes. Then you're out of stamina and they can absolutely man (or woman) handle you."
