Guide By: Metabolic XBA
There are 32 achievements with a total of 1000 points.
None of them are very difficult and will simply have you completing a series of drills to give you a better understanding of the three areas. This step is relatively painless and shouldn’t take much more than 45 minutes. Once you are done with all 90 challenges you will unlock "There is no "Try"" for 75 .
See the descriptions for "The Art of Eight Limbs," "It’s Showtime!" and "The Arm That Feeds" for more detailed information. Grabbing these six achievements will net you another 225 .
For the career achievement, "Gracie Pride," you are required to submit 12 opponents in a row. While this is certainly doable on Pro by the time you are further into your career and have your submission skill maxed out, you may find it easier to do partial career playthrough on easy to obtain this.
The remaining achievement, "Friends or Foes?," is obtained in Rivalry Mode. See the achievement descriptions for more information.

|Win your first career fight|
To unlock this achievement you have to win your UFC debut, this is your first official fight after winning TUF. The achievement will unlock in the event results screen post fight.
|Begin With the End in Mind||5|
|Earn the first ability of your Career|
Abilities are small perks that you unlock throughout your career that you can add to your gameplan to gain a boost in one of three areas, Ground, Stand Up and Physical. You will unlock the first ability after winning The Ultimate Fighter.
|In the Spotlight||5|
|Upload a Highlight Reel to FighterNet|
ONLINE: To upload a highlight reel you first have to complete a fight in one of the online modes. After the fight you will see a small menu and one of the options will be to watch the fight highlights, hit this, when the highlights are over you will be asked if you want to upload them to FighterNet. Choose Yes and once the clip is uploaded the achievement will unlock.
|Friends or Foes?||5|
|Complete a Rivalry||(14)|
ONLINE: To start a rivalry you need to have someone on your friends list that is playing the game. Go to the Rivalry section of the online menu, if you don’t see your friend in the list you may have to fight them in a quick match first for them to show up. A rivalry consists of a five fight season and the first to eight points wins. Once you have completed your first rivalry season the achievement will unlock.
|To the Top!||10|
|Earn a promotion in Online Championships|
ONLINE: Online Championships consist of 10 fight seasons. You earn three points for a KO or submission win, two points for a decision win and one point for a decision loss. You don’t lose any points for a loss. Each division has a set amount of points you need to attain to be promoted to the next division, or belt. For example to be promoted from the White Belt division to the Blue Belt division you have to finish the season with eight or more points. Once the season is over if you have hit your target you will be promoted and the achievement will unlock.
|Win The Ultimate Fighter in Career|
You start your Career Mode run by fighting to enter The Ultimate Fighter. To unlock the achievement you will need to win four fights, a preliminary fight, a quarter final fight, a semi-final fight and the finale. Once you have won the fourth fight and earned the title of Ultimate Fighter the achievement will unlock. Don’t worry if you lose any of these fights, if you do you will be asked if you want to try again. Declining will obviously void the achievement.
|The Big Time||10|
|Fight on the main card of a UFC event in Career|
As you play through your career, as long as you’re winning, you will eventually be offered a spot on the main card. I had my first main card bout around the 15-0 mark of my career. The achievement will unlock after the fight.
|Fight for a title in Career|
Again, as you play through your career and rack up those wins you will eventually be put into a number one contender fight, win the fight and the achievement will pop.
|Survive a stun state||(1)|
A stun state is when the head of your avatar will flash red and you will be fighting to survive. The easiest way to survive a stun state is to quickly go for a takedown by holding + quarter circle. Even if your attempt fails you can go in for another one, repeat this until the stun state clears and the achievement will unlock. After you have survived the stun state if you can finish your opponent in the same round you will also unlock "Iron Heart." Both of these achievements should come naturally at some point throughout your career.
|Ahead of the Class||25|
|Earn an early promotion in Championships||(2)|
ONLINE: To earn an early promotion in Championship Mode you need to win the title in your division before your 10th and final fight, this is easiest done in the White Belt division. You need 14 points to win the title at White Belt, which amounts to five stoppage wins. As a reminder you will receive three points for a stoppage win by either KO or submission and two points for a decision win. You will not lose any points for a loss. Once you have won the title the achievement will unlock.
|Making Your Mark||25|
|Win 5 Career fights in a row|
To unlock this achievement you need to win five fights in a row whilst in the UFC, your fights in TUF will not count towards your total. After winning your fifth fight the achievement will unlock. For tips on easier ways to win on Pro see "Forefathers."
|Top of the Mountain||25|
|Win a UFC title in Career|
As you progress in your career you will eventually fight for the title, assuming you are performing well enough. This will be a tough fight and at times quite unfair, especially on Pro. By this point in your career you should have been able to build up all aspects of your fighter’s game, the easiest way to win this fight is to go after your opponent’s weakness. My title fight was against Carlos Condit, he has KO kick power and could fully damage any part of my body with a single kick, he could also stagger me in two shots. The weakest part of his game was his submissions, so I had to take him down and submit him. It may take you a few tries because the CPU can get some rather cheap wins. If you do lose you can pause, quit out to the gym and retry.
|KO an opponent via Cage Kick||(1)|
For this achievement you can also use knee strikes off the cage which are much easier to land. You can obtain this in any mode but it is easier to pick it up in a Play Now fight using two controllers, you can also combine this with "A False Sense of Security" to unlock two achievements in one fight.
|The Art of Eight Limbs||25|
|Land a left and right punch, kick, knee, and elbow in the same round|
This can be obtained in any mode, however there are some fighters that don't have all the available strikes in their arsenal, the best person to use for this is Jon Jones. Below is an easy method to obtain this, along with two other achievements, in a Play Now fight using two controllers.
|I'll Stand, Thanks||25|
|Stuff five or more takedowns in a single fight||(2)|
To stuff a takedown you need hold and flick the down as your opponent grabs you. Stuff five or more takedowns in a single fight to unlock the achievement.
|Do an AMA!||25|
|Gain 50,000 fans in Career|
After each fight in your career you will obtain more fans, you should reach 50,000 fans fairly quickly after your 5th or 6th fight.
|The Arm That Feeds||25|
|Submit opponent in the first round via Armbar||(1)|
This can be obtained in any mode but is easiest done in a Play Now fight with two controllers. Set up the match however you want but choose the women’s bantamweight division and more specifically Rhonda Rousey. Once the fight starts immediately go for a double leg takedown by holding and moving the in a quarter circle clockwise. This should land you inside your opponents guard, now you will need to transition to the full mount position. To initiate the armbar hold and move the in a half circle clockwise. Complete the submission by flicking the in the given direction to tighten the hold. Once the sub is complete and your opponent taps the achievement will unlock.
|Fight of the Night||25|
|Win a Fight of the Night bonus in Career|
The fight of the night award is the most difficult bonus to obtain during your career. The most consistent way to earn it is in a title defense, you need to make it exciting and let it go for a few rounds, a quick sub or KO is more likely to lead to a KO/Sub of the night bonus than a FotN. Try to mix up your attacks, be aggressive and go for the finish in the fourth or fifth round. If you have managed to put on the FotN the achievement will unlock at the event results screen post fight.
|Submission of the Night||25|
|Win a Performance of the Night by Submission||(1)|
The submission of the night bonus is not too hard to receive but you are more likely to pick this up when fighting on the main card. If you have managed to pick up the SotN bonus the achievement will unlock at the event results screen post fight.
|Knockout of the Night||25|
|Win a Performance of the Night by Knockout|
The knockout of the night award is the easiest bonus to pick up and you should have no problem getting this once you start regularly fighting on the main card. If you have managed to pick up the KotN bonus the achievement will unlock at the event results screen post fight.
|A False Sense of Security||50|
|Finish an opponent in the last 10 seconds of the last round||(3)|
See "It’s Showtime!" for more information.
|Earn 12 consecutive submission wins in Career||(5)|
As you play through your career you should earn more than enough evolution points to max out your submission skills, once they are at 100 it becomes much easier to submit opponents. After you have submitted your 12th opponent the achievement will unlock in the results screen post fight.
|Finish an entire Championships Season by knocking out every opponent||(10)|
ONLINE: This is easiest done in the White Belt division, here you only need to win five fights in a row to unlock the achievement. The quickest and easiest way to KO someone is to grab them in a Muay Thai plum clinch by holding + and pushing towards them, then repeatedly kneeing them in the head by holding back on the and hitting / . Below is a list of the best fighter in each division to utilize this technique with:
|Finish an entire Championships Season by submitting every opponent||(3)|

Your career will automatically end after your 40th fight, so to unlock this achievement you need to have at least a 33-7 record. There is a chance that your career will also end early due to the amount of damage you have taken.

At the end of your career, if you have a good enough record, you will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. There are no known requirements for entering the HoF at this time. To be safe I would recommend trying to hit at least the 33-7 record required for "The Prodigy." Below are some general tips to help you win throughout your Pro career.
|There Is No "Try"||75|
|Complete all Training Challenges||(4)|
There are a total of 90 training challenges split across three areas.
They are all fairly simple and just task you with completing various tasks within a time limit. You don’t have to achieve the maximum rank to complete the challenges. The achievement will unlock after completing the final challenge.
|You Earned It||50|
|Earn promotion on the 10th fight of a Championships season||(1)|
ONLINE: This achievement is not as hard as it sounds; although you will need to purposely take a couple of losses on the way to your 10th fight to make sure you are not passing the point limit for a promotion. The required number of points will vary depending on the division you are in. For example in the White Belt division you need 8 points to earn a promotion, you earn three points for a finish, two points for a decision win and one point for a decision loss.

The required number of points will vary depending on the division you are in. For example in the Blue Belt division you need eight points to avoid being relegated, you earn three points for a finish, two points for a decision win and one point for a decision loss. To avoid relegation in your 10th fight you will need to win two fights, lose your next seven then win the 10th. If you fail to win in your 10th fight you will have to start over and set it up again. Once you have successfully avoided relegation the achievement will unlock.
