Wow, just found this old WCL thread and read it. Intersting. Anyway, I watched a couple of fights from season 1 of the WCL and there was a bunch of stuff I didn't care for.
However, now I've been watching the second season pretty regularly and they have made a ton of improvements - everything from the tv production to the quality of fighters has improved. And as you all mentioned, the rules have evolved too. Here are a couple of current fights from this season for you all to compare to what you remember it being before:
YouTube - WCL - Raymond "The Real Deal" Daniels vs Damion Caldwell 2
YouTube - WCL - Jason Bourelly vs Matt Foshee
YouTube - WCL - Munah Holland vs Jennifer Han
Enjoy and flame on!
Nice stuff, Valiss. Thanks.
No problem. Also Guy Mezger and Richard Norton are the commentators, which is cool.

Thats what Bloodsport is for NOOB!
Didn't they do that in an early UFC? I seem to recall a sumo guy getting his ass handed to him.
