can anyone explain how to counter the cruifix?

During the strike, some players can almost throw you off causing great stamina loss. I've tried all sorts of combinations but I can't figure that one out. Any help? Pretty sure they can do it from side saddle as well.

  • Hold R2 and flick the right stick towards your opponent.

    You pretty much have to time it at the same time as the strike is thrown.

    I think it's towards, may be away from.

    I've been doing that, except I think I kept trying up and down instead of left/right. Anyway, thank you!

    I don't get a lot of time to practice being stuck in that position but when i do I can't get a single one! I've tried R2 and the right stick in about every position but he never tries. I don't get it.

    Single player heavyweight is a good place to try it, against Cormier.
    It needs to be timed really early. You have to anticipate a strike being thrown, you can’t wait until you see one being thrown.
    It’s definitely towards your opponent by the way.
  • So what are the proper buttons?
  • Hold R2 and flick the right stick towards your opponent.
  • I finally got it. lol thanks sir

    He was asking for escaping from crucifix and You are talking about reversing it ;p
  • Super lame how every fighter can do crucifix and the other arm trap when you very rarely see anyone do it in real life, should be a specialty move card imo.

    I have way bigger problem with spinning kicks and body knees spammers who have full stamina in 5th round while they should be done in first round. There are players with spinning kicks equiped on specialists cuz spamming it is all they do. How many spinning kicks can You see in real fight ? 1? Max 2 when its Jones fighting.. Theyre spamming it like 30x/round and their stamina is still fine..
