Takedowns are a vital part of UFC, but you need to switch up your attacks. There’s not just one button tied to takedown, so you’ll need to learn the variety of options so that you’re not being countered all the time.

Below, we’ve listed all of the basic takedowns in the game, which all of the fighters should be able to do. Some of them require you to grapple to/clinch the opponent first, but we’ve noted the inputs for them in the table too.
