Depends on what difficulty you're at.
1.) You get 1-2 "actions" between fights which can be either a training (stats) or a camp session (learn/level up moves)
2.) A well trained fighter can be surprisingly good stat wise after retirement. My "K1" Brock is like 91 and regular Brock at 88. Only learn what moves you need from camps, and train very hard.
3.) The different types of training drills will usually have a stat increase and some will actually subtract a stat pt or two. You have the option to do the drill manually yourself or just sim it. If you choose manual workout, however well you perform the drill you will get 1-4 stars (simming automatically just gives you 2) and come with a better/worse stat increase.
The cage control and takedown defense drills are super easy to do manually and if you need some good stats in takedown off/def and ground grappling.
4.) You will be forced to pick 1 camp to train with after a while so make sure you look over their move list for each camp and then pick one that seems to meet the gameplan/style you implement. If you're playing at Advanced/Expert like me, make sure to learn some ground escapes/reversals especially from side control/mount. Wolfslair is amazing for that.
5.) Fight matchups are either unclassified, Tune Up fights (crushing cans) or Fill In (only 1 action but with more CRED). If you just lost, probably would be a good idea to sign for a tune up fight.
6.) The currency you get is CRED, you can either use it to increase your physical stat max or MMA stat max. Before in 2010 you'd have decay thresholds of 30, 50, and 70. In 3, your stats only max at 60. You have to use CRED to buy either training programs (Cardio, Strength, Speed, Footwork) or sparring partners to increase the max. You can also use CRED to buy sponsor logos/shirts.
Overall I feel that 2010's career had much more depth and 3 was more refined. If you took the best parts of career out of 2010 and applied it to 3 then you'd have one heck of a great Career Mode.
