All the info you need for either 'Fight Club' or when you just get sick of bullets! Ultimately, which style you decide to go get at the Plastic Surgeon is up to you, and which one you like is largely based on taste, but here's the true breakdown and info for all four of Saint's Row 2's Fighting Styles.

Just to note in case you didn't know: Your combo attacks are based on what trigger you used as the third strike. So if you keep wondering why your character keeps doing the same combo attack, then switch up which trigger you use third. There are two different combo attacks per trigger, for four total.

- BASIC BRAWLER -
STRENGTH: 4th (Weakest)
SPEED: 1st (Quickest)
REACH: 3rd
COMBO ATTACKS: Dirty Fighting
PROS: Very quick strikes, fair combo moves
CONS: The Weakest fighting style (by a small margin)
OVERALL: Best Fighting Style; Simple, Quick, and Effective

- SAMEDI CAPOEIRA -
STRENGTH: 3rd
SPEED: 2nd
REACH: 4th (Shortest)
COMBO ATTACKS: Luchador-Style Wrestling
PROS: Cool-looking combos
CONS: Weak fighting style, horrible reach, only the right punch has reach to it
OVERALL: Worst Fighting Style; Weak and Short-Ranged and not even too fast

- BROTHERHOOD WRESTLING -
STRENGTH: 1st (Strongest)
SPEED: 4th (Slowest)
REACH: 1st (Furthest)
COMBO ATTACKS: Heavyweight Wrestling
PROS: Very powerful, long-ranged strikes, many strikes are uninterruptable
CONS: Very very slow, the Headbutt combo looks weak
OVERALL: Second Best Fighting Style; Powerful and Far-Reaching, but it's very slow speed keeps it from being better than Brawler

- RONIN KARATE -
STRENGTH: 2nd
SPEED: 3rd
REACH: 2nd
COMBO ATTACKS: Karate Kicks
PROS: Powerful basic strikes in kicks
CONS: Not as fast as you'd expect, combo moves are lame
OVERALL: Third Best Fighting Style; it's powerful kicks are balanced by it's slow speed

BY STRENGTH
1st - The Brotherhood's Wrestling
2nd - The Ronin's Karate
3rd - The Samedi's Capoeira
4th - Basic Brawler (3rd Street Saint's)

BY SPEED
1st - Basic Brawler (3rd Street Saint's)
2nd - The Samedi's Capoeira
3rd - The Ronin's Karate
4th - The Brotherhood's Wrestling

BY REACH
1st - The Brotherhood's Wrestling
2nd - The Ronin's Karate
3rd - Basic Brawler (3rd Street Saint's)
4th - The Samedi's Capoeira

OVERALL
1st - Basic Brawler (3rd Street Saint's) - GOOD
2nd - The Brotherhood's Wrestling - GOOD
3rd - The Ronin's Karate - FAIR
4th - The Samedi's Capoeira - POOR

USEFULNESS
Brawler - Useful on anyone without a gun
Capoeira - To show off, or to just look at those cool combos
Wrestling - On slow opponents, or tough enemies with melee weapons (like Pimps)
Karate - On multiple enemies at once

FIGHT CLUB EFFECTIVENESS

BRAWLER - Your best shot at winning without using weapons or food (the REAL way to compete in 'Fight Club'!)

KARATE - The combos are good for striking multiple enemies at once, but the kicks don't have enough range for opponents to not be able to evade them. Still, you shouldn't have too much trouble using this style.

WRESTLING - Considering most of the Arena cage fighters will gang up on you with this, and considering how very slow it is and that you're fighting several opponents at once, you might only want to use this if you're looking for a challenge.

CAPOEIRA - Use this if you're either looking to get your butt kicked or looking for the ultimate Fight Club No Weapons/No Food Challenge! If you use this, stick mostly to the right punch.

FIGHT CLUB FIGHTERS

ARENA - Most use Wrestling and a few use Capoiera.

PRISON - The majority use Brawler and some use Karate and Wrestling. On rare occassions, you'll see some inmates using Capoiera.
