EA Sports unleashed a new patch update for their MMA video game UFC 2 which added new fighters and some new features. Among the notable additions include the “Stockton Slap,” which was popularised by UFC fighters Nick and Nate Diaz.

Before talking about the game update for “UFC 2,” some may ask, what is exactly a “Stockton Slap?” Nate Diaz explained that it is just basically a slap. Diaz tries to slap his opponents in his matches, which probably became a moniker for him by commentator Mike Goldberg. You can check out the video below on how the slap works.

Meanwhile, two new fighters were added to the game, namely Patrick Cote and Louis Smolka. Tweaks were made in the game to balance the fighters as well as to improve the UFC Ultimate Team. You can check out the full patch notes below:
