Aim for the Liver
There is a certain amount of realism in UFC 3, for example, shots to the right-hand side of an opponent's body, where the liver sits, do more damage than shots to the left.

Break Blocks
If you have you opponent in trouble and they are almost about to be knocked out but are covering up you will be able to break down their defense by throwing shots from opposite hands. Mixing up straights and hooks will finish off your opponent quicker than just spamming the same shot.
