Step 1: Learn the basics.
The first thing you should do is the tutorials. They help out a lot for people who are just starting out. They show you how to do the basic moves like takedowns and submissions as well as how to do ground transitions and clinches. When your just starting out you will only need to know the basic controls so you should be able to hold you own in a fight after doing the tutorials. There is a trophy to finish all the tutorials so as you learn to play the game you get a trophy out of it. You should have the Student of the game.
Step 2: Exhibition matches.
Before starting a career or going online you should do exhibition matches and get these trophies out of the way while you are still learning how to play. You can consider these as your first practice fights. Use the techniques you’ve learned in the tutorials and practice. You may find in your first few matches this game can be a bit overwhelming with its learning curve but after two or three matches you should start to find this game easier and easier after each fight. You will find yourself knocking guys out a lot more and not getting to many submission wins. Just focus on knocking people out at this stage because your most likely still learning the ropes of the game. Go through the list of fighters and win matches and you will not only learn new techniques you will learn the differences between the different fighting styles so you know which one to pick when creating your fighter. When your going through this step watch the Octagon Girls cutscene after each round so you can get the trophy for that and create a fighter for another trophy while your at it. While your doing Exhibition matches you can get some trophies out of it. By the end of this section you should have the trophies World Class Striker, Roster Run-through, Two of my favourites!, Wanted: Flying Mouthpieces, Ultimate Knockout, That was easy! and Original fighter.
Step 3: Quick belt careers.
By now you should be pretty good after going through the whole roster of fighters. You should now be ready to start some of your careers. You will need to win the belt in every weight class. For this step though only win it for 4 of the weight classes so you can have one good career to get a whole bunch of trophies. It doesn’t matter what weight classes you choose to get your quick title belts in as long as you do it in a different weight class every time. You can win the title belt in about 10 fights or less if you pick the highest rank fighter you can each time. By the end of this section you should have the trophies Undisputed Champion.
Step 4: Your good career.
After you’ve done the other 4 careers you should start your good career. In this career you should try to be a well balanced fighter so you’re able to get the submission as well as the KO of the night awards. You should also finish this career undefeated. There are a total of 7 years to go through and you need to win every fight. If you lose a fight you can push the PS button and quit the game so the fight doesn’t register as a loss, it may be cheap but it works. If you finish your career undefeated you automatically get in the Hall of Fame so you won’t need to worry about that. In this career also try to get all the trophies in your trophy case. Make sure you get submission of the night early on as that is the hardest on to get. If you get submission of the night the way it says in the guide you should also get another trophy in this run as you should have submitted your opponent without hitting him with striking moves. A trophy case trophy you need to watch out for though is the Striking and Grappling techniques. If you average about 5 challenges completed per camp though you will get it with plenty of time to spare though. By the end of this section you should have the trophies Where’s my bonus check?, Ultimate Highlights, Hall of Famer, Trophy Collector, World Class Grappler, Pound-for-Pound Champion and Call me “No Touch!”.
Step 5: Online.
Now with most of the single player trophies out of the way it’s time for the online trophies. You will see the difficulty to be a lot harder than the fighters you were fighting in single player. There seems to be two type of fighters online, “the mounters” and “the boxers”. “The mounters” will go for the takedown immediately and get into the mount position. Once in this position it is very hard for anyone no matter how good you are to get out of it. The other type of player you generally see is “the boxers”. They favor the stand up fights and just try to punch the crap out of you and go for the knockout. Of course this game can be easily boosted. There thread to find boosting partners can be found here, Boosting Thread. Just get your online wins and boost for the gold medals and these should be no problem. They can be a little time consuming but they are not that hard. By the end of this section you should have the trophies White Belt, Blue Belt, Purple Belt, Brown Belt, Wax On!, Papa Said Knock You Out!, Gold Digger!, You really like me!, Ooh, in ya face!, Black Belt and Red Belt.
Step 6: Classic Fights and cleanup.
Now with all the others steps out of the way and being so close to the platinum you have only a few trophies left. Start by doing the Classic Fights. Most of these are generally the same just with different fighters and you should find these pretty easy at this stage in the game. I suggest you get the Wax Off! trophy in this section as you need to grind for this one, though you can do it in about 3 fights. If you haven’t already gotten the Ultimate Submission trophy get it in this section. By the end of this section you should have the trophies Ultimate Submission, UFC Historian, Wax Off! and Platinum.
Where’s my bonus check? – Bronze Trophy
Obtain the KO, Submission and Fight of the Night Awards with a fighter in Career Mode.
In career if you will be awarded trophies for KO, Submission and fight of the night, these can be quite random at times but they shouldn’t be too hard.
KO – Go for a quick knockout that seems to be the best way of getting this or get a KO on the counter.
Submission – This is by far the hardest one. The best way of getting it is when you start a new career make sure your fighter is a wrestler. After your first fight do lots of sparing and you want to put your points on Sub offence and Takedown offence. Then in your second fight go for the takedown then hold L1 then move the right stick up and round to the right and you will pick them up and slam them to the mat which will lower your opponents stamina, then press L3 to get up, you want to keep doing this until his stamina is as low as it will go this should be sometime in the second round, then go for one more slam but insted of getting up transition in to side control and put a Kirmura on them and make them tap. This will get you Sub of the night, a couple of things to remember you have to use the Kimura nothing else will work and the most important thing DO NOT PUNCH OR KICK YOUR OPPONENT if you do you won’t get it. Then thats the hardest career trophy done in the second fight.
Fight of the Night – This is easier to get in title fights because you can fight for 5 rounds, don’t go for the KO early on because you won’t get it try and take it to a decision.
That was easy! – Bronze Trophy
Win in under 20 seconds of the 1st round against a COM UFC Fighter in Exhibition or Career Mode.
Try to KO your opponent in less than 20 seconds. I recommend using Brock Lesnar and going against Eddie Sanchez because he is the weakest heavyweight. When the fight starts run over to him and Superman punch him or back fist and hope you can knock him out this will require a bit of luck.

For the KO opponent while rocked do this with a partner get them to attack you till you get rocked then just knock them out it doesn’t have to be while the screen is grey it can be after as long as you don’t get hit again after you have been rocked.
For the 1 hit KO follow this (thanks to f0xdye for the tip)
Ok, you’ll have to have a boosting partner.
