This Jab, Hook, and Lead Body Roundhouse combo is pretty easy to learn and can be considered one of the staple Muay Thai combinations that fighters should use. With the first two steps of the combination dealing head damage to the opponent, the Lead Body Roundhouse to finish off will most times be unlocked against opponents who will be led into believing another head shot is coming.

Since it only has three steps with a basic Jab attack at the beginning, players will be able to learn this combination fairly easily if they spend a few minutes in Practice Mode. This combination can rival even the best UFC punching combinations.

5 Jab > Straight > Lead Hook > Leg Kick

Since the second step in the combination is a body attack, players can distribute lots of damage to an opponent's head as well as their stomach area. Be sure not to overuse this combination as the Overhand is a pretty slow move that can be blocked and countered by quick-thinking opponents very easily.

2 Body Straight > Lead Hook > Body Roundhouse

PlayStation Input L2 + Triangle, L1 + Square, L2 + Circle

This Muay Thai combination combines body and head damage to knock an opponent out quickly and decisively. Hooks and roundhouse moves do a lot of damage on their own, and keep the opponent guessing on where the player is going to strike next.

While the actual button input won't be too challenging for players to obtain, its timing is what makes the combination difficult. This is why players should first learn this combination on Practice rather than rushing straight into fights before mastering it. Every player needs to know the importance of timing on UFC combinations.

1 Straight > Lead Hook > Hook > Lead Body Roundhouse

This combination pretty much solely targets the opponent's head, apart from the last stage of the combination which targets the body. The Lead body Roundhouses that comes at the climax of the combination is unlikely to be blocked by opponents due to the three head attacks that the player first uses. If the player knows any UFC secret moves, they could follow up this combination with one of them.

While there are four steps in this Muay Thai combination, the button input for each move is very easy, making it simple to learn after a few minutes in Practice Mode. While UFC 4 players will always disagree on the best combinations due to differing fight styles, none can deny the power behind this combination.
