    World Combat League - BS to the Max

    I wish the abomination called the World Combat League (WCL) would just go away. It's 3 minute fights are just two fighters flailing at each other because of the silly rules. You are penalized if you clinch and penalized even if you back off to plan stategy. It's a real suprise that Chuck Norris who took BJJ because he saw limitations of his own art would come up with such junk.

    It's kickboxing. Of course there are no takedowns or clinching. What did you expect?

    It's also another American only sport that claims to be 'World'.

    So you think that it's good fighting. Just guys winging wild punches and kicks.

    i think it's good kickboxing. Wild punches? some guys looked pretty good... plus the short rounds are to encourage action... which there was a LOT of... PLUS they allow knees...

    i was actually impressed.

    of course its not MMA... it's not claiming to be MMA... i'm surprized you thought the punches were wild... i thought they looked decent-good.

    It's just the name World Combat League is misleading, its not like they called them selves WKA , or something.

    Some people describe the UFC the same way.

    I much prefer the new IFL as new sports go. But at least the WCL is full contact and continous fighting, which puts it way above point fighting and XMA.

    I just wish the IFL would get a cage or something similar. I hate it when fighters get mixed up in the ropes.

    Agreed. Cage, or nothing. I like open air.

    That's just because they aren't fighting with a gi on. If they were fighting with the gi on then there wouldnt be that problem. You see, as soon as you accept the inate superiority of the gi game, then all else follows.


    Maybe someone should come up with a division that has no sides at all, with a raised outside edge, and allows the audience to see all the fight without anything getting in the way.

    Then creat some rules that encourage a fast pace and lots of hitting.

    Why doesnt someone suggest something like that to someone with influence in the MA world? we could get someone like Chuck Norris involved and make a killing.
