EA Sports UFC 3 Patch 1.08 Available, Add 5 New Fighters, New Takedown Features, Push Offs & More

EA Sports UFC 3 patch 1.08 is available for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It includes diving punches to finish a fight, new takedown features, new push off feature, better cage cutting, a few more taunts and more.

The content update also includes 5 new fighters, Tito Ortiz (2006), Matt Serra (2007), Kimbo Slice (2009), Mirko Cro Cop (2010), and Wanderlei Silva (2010).

Most of the patch notes were released on Twitter prior to the official release, from Geoff Harrower, A.K.A. GameplayDevUFC. Check them out below. A big thanks to Bigg Cee for rounding them all together.

  • Made block breakdown faster when circling into a round strike on the same side you’re circling to.
  • Reduced movement speed when circling into a blocked round strike on the same side you’re circling to.
  • Reduced power when your back is against the cage.
  • Reduced size of the cage takedown early denial window.
  • Increased range on cage takedowns from 2 feet to 3 feet.
  • Added new push off animation that is performed by holding block and pressing the lead uppercut button inputs.
  • Added the ability to enter finish the fight after a KO strike. The walk off KO animations will still play if you knock someone out and don’t press any strike buttons while the opponent is falling.
  • Added an all new set of diving punch animations which allowed us to dramatically increase the responsiveness of diving on your opponent after a KD or KO. You will now be able to dive in immediately when they hit the ground, and at all times after that. And finally, these new animations allowed us to remove the step over into mount animation that would play on occasion that threw off the balance of the game.
  • Increased the likelihood of the AI diving onto an injured fighter after knockdown & KO.
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes submission chains would not display the submission HUD.
  • Frame tuning on grappling transitions to speed up transition time without altering denial window size. This is a bit of a nebulous change, but it basically makes it so the transition meter matches the denial window, which wasn’t the case before and I believe caused a fair amount of confusion as people expected they matched. Bottom line is transitions will feel faster than before overall, which will have gameplay implications on transition races, and strike vs. transition interactions, but will not impact denial windows.
  • Added Open Weightclass in Tournament Mode
  • Added a new low single leg ankle pick takedown animation. The ankle pick can be performed by any fighter with a TD rating of 87 or higher. To perform the ankle pick, execute a single leg takedown from step kick range, or kick range if your opponent is retreating, or any range if your opponent is using the straight arm defensive retreat
  • Made single leg takedowns harder to deny against retreating opponents
  • Made double leg takedowns harder to deny against forward moving opponents
  • Fixed an issue where AI would shoot for a second takedown right after missing the first
  • Rematch option added to Online Quick Fights
  • Allow more strikes on the ground to KO a fighter mid transition.
  • Added four new @Cody_Nolove signature taunts.
  • Disabled signature lunges while heavily fatigued.
  • Knockout Mode and Stand and Bang added as available Fight Rules in Online Quick Fights.

EA also posted a new blog from the EA Sports UFC 3 team going over many more details, including quite a few GIF examples.

  1. I wasn't but under NO circumstances am I disappointed with these changes, especially the cage TD buff and the block change.
    Cage power drop is going to be really interesting, I'm always cutting the cage off so its a good change for me though its gonna make playing as Anderson a bit harder heh (I could solve that by not backing up to the fence but.. No.)
    Hopefully we get LW Hooker, FW MJ and updated Jeremy Stephens too.
    And Dave Branch!! If he doesn't get added this month I'm losing hope with Lando, Sugar, Stamman and Big Mac being all but confirmed for upcoming patches.
    ill reserve judgment until they are all out, they usually have good reasons for why they do things. I like the buff to tds against cage.
    Id say some priorities are
    Reducing effectiveness of td denial to double unders.
    Shorten denial period for clinching against cage
    Reduce the speed of the spinning kick in a combination, its wayy too fast.
    Add td grappleadvantage to blocked side kicks to the knee/oblique kicks.
    Update the advanced evasive’s animation to not be so slow.

    Honestly this is a bad start. It is another step backwards. Can it get any worse?

    What's the issue? That nothing huge was announced immediately or you don't like these changes?
    I don't see how they're bad?
    I'm not saying there isn't other things that.need work (Stamina drain!!!) but I don't think making making walking into a round strike more damaging to your block, or increased shoot range for cage TDs is a step backwards.
    Like.. at all.
    GPD might not have dropped any bombs but yeah.. I wouldn't call this a step backwards.

    You mentioned you don't play online enough to understand why some of these patches if nothing else is added are problematic.
    How patches play a role in online and offline are two complete different things.
    But to answer your question, this game already revolves heavily around pressure and it is very difficult to fight from a distance online unless you are almost always countering. This patch makes certain elements even harder, specifically the ones that apply to circling.

    I made it a bigger font so that it is more likely to happen. Thats how it works right?
    Are you sure that you're not my long lost brother? Lol just kidding but I think you and I are the only people on here who are this adamant about having ragdoll KOs and FTF implemented in this game. Literally if those are the only 2 improvements they add to this game before they're done working on it I'll be a happy man and honestly this game probably won't be removed from my PS4 in the foreseeable future.

    as much as i'm all for FTF and ragdoll knockdowns, man there are so many problems right now i just don't see these things being most peoples' biggest priority. I don't even try to jump on people cause even in the fetal position you're more likely to just A: punch the air like an idiot, B: fall into guard and get subbed or something else. Today i nailed a guy with 3 blast combos (jab upper, hook hook, right in a row, he went fetal, tried to jump on, got subbed. FFS... now i just kick the legs. Especially in UT. Best i can get my CAF to is about 80 sub D. try to get out of sub if a guy has 100 subO, even if he has little to no stamina. its way too difficult.

    I'm with ya on the subs but I think the reason ragdoll KOs and FTF are so crucial is because these were in UFC 2 and adding these back in seems to only be logical. I dont think as a whole UFC 3 is a step backwards but in a couple areas it is,especially these 2 elements. I
    These 2 additions alone would improve the game so much. I definitely share your sentiments with submission defense. Although I dont get submitted quite as much right now as I was since the last 2 patches, I still am tapping way too much,especially with full or near full stamina.

    Yeah man I can't even fully explain why its so important to my enjoyment of the game, it just is. I guess the best I can explain is that everything else you do during a fight leads up to the finish. So if the finish sucks, or looks like your last 30 finishes, it is SOOO underwhelming to me. Ragdoll and a better Finish the Fight system creates a much more dynamic and even choice based (walk-off KO or follow your opponent down) finish to fights. I'm with ya, if those two things were added, I'd be happy till UFC 4. Obviously there is much still that could be added (and I hope a lot of it makes it in), but I would honestly be happy with the game.

    No need to explain why these things are important,anyone who's an MMA fan knows exactly why. Man I cant even begin to tell you how many amazing fights I've had and then I drop my opponent and I just awkwardly stand there as they get up.......or I land a crisp headkick that clips them in the side of the head and they fall backwards with their hands up for the 10 millionth time. Its moments like these that take away all the momentum of an epic back and forth fight that's otherwise memorable.

    Fair enough, you're right, I don't consider how these things affect online, I'll have to try to play a few more quick fights and keep it in consideration.
    With that said, I completely agree that distance management favors the pressure fighter and I do hope we get some buffs to outside fighting, even offline pressure heavy AI's are almost impossible to maintain distance from unless you rock em to back em off.

    In general these would be great changes. But not with the current meta. Right now it's a huge step backwards and therefor we need at least 3 steps forward in other stuff like nerfing the amount of strikes thrown and buffing outside fighting. It don't think it's possible that Geoff's gonna change those aspects too much and go many steps forward from now. We'll see ...

    Ah, now I'm following you.
    Yeah, I can't disagree given the current online meta, as an offline player I'm stoked but I do hope more balance comes through to adjust this for you online guys (plus I just want outside fighting buffed anyway)
    Pressure fighting being so damn effective along with Australian internet are like half the reason I stay offline lol.
    A few people have theorized these changes are to balanced a buff to outside fighting so I pray they're right.

    Well put, can't help but completely agree.
    For every 1 finish that fits the fight perfectly, has me cringing and shouting in my seat and generally just feels freaking great.
    There are 30 that are anti-climactic enough ill restart the fight before the damned preset animation finishes because its so jarring or it will kinda dampen mt mood for UFC and ill play something else.
    Full KO's should just be full ragdoll, it happens occasionally (KO someone mid-kick or backfist and they'll often just go into ragdoll and droooop) even they look SOOOOO much better than the preset animations.
    Praying for the ability to feint Takedowns. I like the way of being able to deny takedowns, but man it would be so satisfying if you could feint the takedown, and once they try to deny it, you can reshoot and get a takedown. I do a lot of that when I wrestle, so it'd be dope if that could be implemented it could open things up for grapplers.
    Also hoping for Dillashaw to have 90 TD Offense being that he's a D1 NCAA Wrestler that finished in the blood round, and has hit takedowns almost at will on everybody else he's fought excluding Barao, Cody and to an extent Cruz.

    Can someone explain me how to defend takedown against cage?

    The same way you defend a standing takedown, RT + RS DOWN once they have initiated the cage takedown.
    Maybe your defending earlier, when being pushed against the cage and not when they initiate the takedown?

    That is probably the issue. Always defending it soon as the animation begins which seems to be wrong way. Thanks for tips.
    Updated the OP with a new patch spoiler.
    Here is some more info on patch spoiler #6
    Added new push off animation that is performed by holding block and pressing the lead uppercut button inputs. #patchspoilers #EAUFC3
    The push off behaves like a strike to the body that does zero damage, and pushes the opponent back similar to a push kick. It's a close range strike that will interrupt other strikes except kicks and straight punches.
    The push off can combo with other strikes in the exact same way a jab could combo. This means you can push someone back into kick range and execute a head kick, or execute a combo and end it with a push to create space and separate
    AydinDubstep
    Is the push off animation a shove? Like pushing the guy back?
    Edit:
    Just read the post above, sounds damn useful! Giorgio Petrosyan style balance manipulation.

    Yes it is. I'm interested to see how quickly people learn to combo that with strikes.
    Oh crap a push
    That’s awesome.
    I wonder what the animation will look like.
    I hope it isnt as drastic as a forward moving push kick.
    Btw since it’s like a body strike does that mean uppercuts beat it?

    Its not as drastic as the push kick. It keeps your opponent in range enough where you could land a follow up kick.

    The push animation is awesome because it gives us another option in that midrange space besides brawl or back up.
    A lot of fights are dirtier than this game could previously replicate. That was one of the main reason you saw high strike outputs. There is a lot of in between space in MMA between striking in space, clinching and fighting on the ground that hasn't gotten it's moment to shine yet. It looks like we are working towards that and I'm ecstatic.
    Next step is some more microtransition type stuff like grabbing, wrist control, seat belt positions and such in between transitions on the ground. More control positions, smaller movements, mini battles for positions setting the right conditions for winning the fight.

    If FTF is reliable now I'm a happy man.
    (Though more ragdoll would be sick)
    Also, is the uppercut+block "pushback" going to be what I hope? A space creating shove??

    Transition fake spam will be real after this one.

    It has absolutely no impact on fakes.
    Also, if people are “spamming” fakes, they would be predictable, no? So you can easily pre deny it or perform your own transition over it.
    With the pushback, saying you can end a combo with it to create space, how would that work exactly if it requires hitting block+uppercut? I’m assuming there will need to be a delay between that and your last strike since hitting block will cause a feint yes? The only thing I can see it being able to be combined with to end a combo would be elbow/knees?
    With non block scheme strikes, I’m guessing it’d be something like jab, straight, wait for straight to land, then pushback input? I wonder if a jab, straight, pushback headkick would work

    No because they spam two-three different directions and it's all about guessing
    . And you can't deny it if opponent is spamming fast enough. Can you just delete these fakes away from game?
    Am.. am I understanding that right?
    Transitions are now only as long as their denial window?
    So, hypothetically, if FG Dom to HG Dom has a 1 second denial window and 2 second to fill transition meter, that will now be a 1 second transition meter??
    If I'm understanding that right, that's f***ing AWESOME.
    Even though I'm going to have to redo my AI grapple sliders again. Worth it.

    Tue or Thu. Tue is my bet if they're dropping spoilers later today.
    It's likely on Monday. That's when they have dropped several times before and the season ends tomorrow as well.
    Plus, every time all the notes have been released during ESFL by GPD, the patch gets released the following day.

    What's wrong with being a Ragdoll KO/FTF guy? Both of these were in previous iterations and sorely missed. Obviously begging has worked to some degree, got FTF back and I'm holding out hope for Ragdoll KOs. Apparently I'm not the only one who wanted these to be added,doubt GPD went out of his way to please one or 2 guys. These were probably added because many of us have been vocal about it,that and these weren't near impossible to add as they already had animations for FTF that they could reuse. I'm not beyond begging for something I'm passionate about.

    I'm an admirer of your work, not a *****. Please don't be confused. I now want to use your strategy to get what I want. And I firmly believe that once this mode is put in, people that had never even thought of it will understand what it can do for the franchise.

    I'm probably going to start a new thread and then periodically update it as I have new ideas for what could be in it, if only so the devs could see all the different ways it could amazing if they even just took 10 % of everything it could be and put it in the next game in some form of a Universe/Promoter Mode.

    I would literally re-buy the game at $60 and it wouldn't even have to be that robust. Record keeping, stat tracking, event planning, some sort of injury/fight replacement/negotiating and matchmaking going on and I'd be all in as a start, even if it was DLC.
    If it have a system of generating prospects that could eventually push out and replace aging/retired fighters I'd easily spend $100. No joke. No lie.

    I think alot of the people who are complaining about some of the games mechanics could overlook many of the games issues if they added something this amazing. I'd probably have to save up some money first though because I could see myself missing alot of work because I'd be hooked on this game and wouldn't wanna turn it off.

    I would also appreciate a Universe Mode a lot. My only worry with that sort of mode is that all current real UFC fighters would retire after a while, then we would be stuck with EA randomly created CAFs. Which are usually quite boring. Still absolutely worth putting in the franchise (I hope EA UFC 4), but that is just a concern I have with the mode.

    Counterargument would be that there are a lot of "unusable" characters as people who play primarily online would call them in their current state, that would progress as they got older.
    Think guys like Yair Rodriguez, Jake Matthews, Sage Northcutt, Alexa Grasso...etc. Young with potential to grow. Also, potential to be busts. The fun is finding out.

    What about whenever they add fighters to the roster in the game that they are added to the Universe mode as well? That way up and coming fighters in the UFC are also up and comers in the Universe mode as well? Also the option to incorporate CAF's in Universe mode,not just when you start the mode but the ability to add them whenever.

    If it will help in anyway, please give us some type of Universe Mode for UFC 4!
    Or incorporate pieces into the current career mode by having:
    - Champions in each division CHANGE
    - A way to view each fight card during the calendar year.
    - Be able to play/watch any fight on the card.
    I know these seem like small things, but it would make the career mode 1000x better.

    I just kind of use them however I want. When Till and Covington were added in, I just inserted them into my top 10 and matched them up accordingly. Same thing with Blaydes.
    If they add O'Malley and Dern, they'll have to work their way up the ranks.

    It depends on how you see Universe mode. I dont see it as a Frnachise mode where you sim 15-20 yrs into the future and have to worry about fighters retiring...at least not in the first iteration.
    I would be happy with something as basic as whats in WWE's Universe mode. You have a schedule. You schedule events. There is a sim engine. Sometimes fighters get injured during events. You can add CAFs or DLC to your current roster.
    I'm not expecting the world. I would be happy if they used Event mode and just expanded on it at this point. Lets create a foundation and build on that with future games.

    I feel like that's the best hope for the first iteration. A compromise would be give us waaaaaaaaay more CAF slots and allow us to upload them in. Then we can choose to replace older fighters or not. They'd still be around for comebacks if we wanted.

    Updated the OP with 5 new patch spoilers
    13. Added a new low single leg ankle pick takedown animation. The ankle pick can be performed by any fighter with a TD rating of 87 or higher. To perform the ankle pick, execute a single leg takedown from step kick range, or kick range if your opponent is retreating, or any range if your opponent is using the straight arm defensive retreat #patchspoilers #EAUFC3
    14. Made single leg takedowns harder to deny against retreating opponents #patchspoilers #EAUFC3
    15. Made double leg takedowns harder to deny against forward moving opponents #patchspoilers #EAUFC3
    16. Fixed an issue where AI would shoot for a second takedown right after missing the first #patchspoilers
    17. Rematch option added to Online Quick Fights #patchspoilers #EAUFC3
    Oh s***
    Tony "Shut up or I'll ankle pick you" Ferguson is gonna be getting some love once this patch drops.
    Oh my yes. Those grappling changes are taaaasty. I might not need to juice up the AI grapple speeds anywhere near as much after this..
    Good stuff!
    The rematch option is huge. Thank you for that. That being said, I don't get the single leg on a retreating opponent buff. The single leg doesn't even reach a retreating opponent most of the time. Is the added ankle pick takedown to the single leg cover more distance? Man I really hope so.

    yeah i dont get the logistics of it, I would have preferred that single legs cost less stamina, but at least it will add diversity
    Just wanna say thank you for addressing takedowns
    Honestly I've always thought that it was easier to get a double leg when they're moving forward (just made sense to me), didn't realise it actually wasn't a mechanic :/ Probably explains alot of my confusions with TD so far, sounds like a promising change
    My only concern is that single legs only ever seem to connect with the opponent when they're standing still or throwing a kick, its unreliable to the point of me trying to unlearn reaction Single legs from UFC 2. Am hoping that along with buffing their speed when someones retreating, you also address this issue, but once again, all looks promising. Be nice if single legs became a viable option again without a kick
    Really intrigued by speeding up the ground game which for me is a plus I hate just waiting for stamina to regenerate really hurts the pacing of the game I hope this patch makes a difference in that regard.
    I wonder if they will make any changes to ultimate team or new venues??

    This is a pretty significant change and more so than most think. Having ground transitions sped up a bit makes the ground game feel much more fluid and responsive. Me and my friends would play custom fight all the time and put transition speed up a notch or two and it feels much more fluid that way.

    Well "iconic" with DJ...maybe it has something to do with championships or champions, that's what's iconic about him - many title defenses. Plus, like I said, there seems to be a belt around his waist, too. Then again, it could be former champions, i.e. what you said.
    Edit: However, it's DJ, and he's active. So who knows. I just hope it's good.

    Very excited about the takedown love here. Some good changes for sure.
    Here's hoping that submission showdown gets optional lenghts. Why no 3x5 option? The tie-breaker mini-game is fun but 3 minutes is not long to work for a submission. I know people rarely play the mode, but this would take mere minutes to add in I assume.

    According to this, Lesnar is listed as on the roster for EA UFC 3. Might be Lesnar coming back.

    Yh wouldn't buy too much into Wiki, but he has been in every game they listed there and they didn't list UFC 2. So it may be legit tbh. That would be cool. Lesnar should have been in UFC 2 and he should be in this game.
    Ronda Rousey will be in the next WWE game, most likely. So maybe the UFC and WWE struck a deal for both Lesnar and Rousey to be in both games simultaneously.

    Maybe they're letting fighters have sponsors on their shorts again and DJ is the first fighter to have that sponsorship. Having the game advertised on his shorts could bring a few new players to the game. Or it's most likely something else.
    Hey everyone!
    Finally decided to join the forums mostly because I'm so excited for this patch!! I actually sold the game early on (just after the 1st patch I think) because I was disappointed by the lack of improvements to the grappling/ground game and the KO/TKO scenarios. This patch (and all the improvements from the previous ones) has finally got me thinking into buying it again!
    Quick question though, are all the new moves/mechanics that were introduced in patches also updated in the in-game move lists and/or tutorials? For example, I believe there was a move introduced from one of the previous patches that allowed fighters to do a quick backpedal to avoid strikes - is that in the any of the move lists or tutorials now? Or do I have to just go back and read the previous patch notes to find out all the additions since launch, and how they are done?
    Many thanks!

    As a thank you to Scott Coker for not making the Chuck-Tito fight in Bellator, Dana White has allowed Bellator fighters in the UFC game.
    As a thank you for letting Ronda Rousey have her entrance music in the WWE because of his relationship with Joan Jett, Vince has allowed Dana White to use Brock Lesnar in the UFC.
    We now get to do Brock vs. Fedor in UFC 3.
    And in two years we get...

    I think it's great the game is getting some love in the form of patch improvements, but i feel like it's a little too late. The few mates I had that were playing ufc 3 have all traded in and sold their copies of the game. I only have a couple last trophies to get and I'll prob be done with the game too. Espec with new triple a games coming out as well.
    I feel like, maybe ea should have concentrated on more single player improvements, than online as I feel this community has more off-line players. And most online players seem to play a game hardcore for a few months and then move onto the next game.
    Hopefully ufc 4 will have universe mode and more in depth career & UT for ppl who will be playing this game until the next one comes out.
    Forgot to mention that I think UT really needs to be the same online & off.
    I'll explain, ut mode is meant to entice players to play everyday(earn daily tokens, coins etc by completing objectives) but only online. I think they should split ut to both sperate modes. Cuz I'm sure alot of ppl would play it more single off-line mode, build up their characters if 5hey didn't have to fight online. Earn coins daily tokens etc etc. Kind of like how street fighter has a single player "online" mode where u fight ppls made up characters.
    Maybe something like that in ufc 4 will give this game more longtivity. Just my 2c.

    @ aholbert32 Do you have any info on new fighters being added in with this patch?
    Probably and no he's not gonna answer because he can't.
    But feel free to guess! I always do!

    The guesses are tough for this one because I actually think there are several deserving that have built up.
    I'm gonna go with David Branch, Zabit and...
    One of the following (I really can't decide):
    Tyson Pedro
    Nicco Montano
    Israel Adesanya
    Marcin Tybura (long shot, but he had some momentum in a a weak division before his 2-fight losing streak).

    I have some but nothing I could tell. I would absolutely get kicked off the team if I even told the little bit that I know.

    I'm hoping for Israel Adesanya, D. Branch, Tai Tuivasa and Pedro. I would include Sugar, but we all know he was scanned so that's automatic.:D

    Not automatic for this patch. Keep in mind they start work on these fighters months before they are released. Sugar was just scanned 10 days ago.

    I understand, don't trip bro we can wait. For some reason including new fighters is like Christmas to me.
    Patch spoiler 18... Are you serious? So you’re buffing the bug where you transition, complete it, but it still gets cancelled due to a strike and gets you ‘stuck’ and often TKOed anyway. Now any chance of recovery is reduced.

    I got you, thanks for the clarity. I wonder how many more fighters will be added before they start saving the rest for UFC 4.

    Here goes. Now that I've downloaded it:
    Serra
    Wanderlei
    Tito
    Kimbo
    Cro Cop

    Wow that is amazing.
    I did not think so many of those were even possible.

    Me neither. I guess the UFC doesnt care about Bellator fighters being in their game anymore.
