How to flying knee in UFC 5

There is nothing quite as satisfying as ending a fight with a flying knee… just ask Jorge Masvidal! Masivdal’s KO of Ben Askren is the fastest in UFC history, so it can be a fight ender.

It is a great option when you’re looking to switch things up and move away from the traditional strikes to the head and body.

Here is how to attempt a flying knee in UFC 5.

  • PlayStation: Hold R2 & L1 & tap X
  • Xbox: Hold RT & LB & tap A

Lead flying knee

Alternatively, if you wish to hit a flying knee with your leading leg, you can do so by following these steps:

  • PlayStation: Hold R2 & tap circle
  • Xbox: Hold RT & tap B

Both of these manoeuvres can be utilised from up close, or from a distance. The success rate of each fighter will depend on their agility and range, so we’d advise jumping into a couple of practice matches to find that sweet spot before you take it to the competitive octagon!

That is everything that you need to know about how to execute a flying knee in UFC 5.
