The WCL fights are ****, but they are entertaining slugfests. Next step is to get angry, sex-deprived male chimps with sticks to beat the **** out of each other. That would be cool.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

Aren't those the bodog fights?

Are you kidding me? I LOVE the WCL. Love the action, love the KOs, like that they showcase female fighters... "Meh" about the team concept though.
It turns every match into a 3 minute flailing slugfest.
Yeah but people take kicks to the head and it does not even affect them.
She says "Just let them try that on Gonzaga"....
ON TOP of that...it is only 3 minute rounds...that's it...you're done.
IIF, those WCL dudes have some really cool kicking **** going. I saw one of them dropping his opponent with a inward crescent kick/axe kick thing (which ended up landing on the back of his head), and another guy doing a flying roundhouse kick (while doing almost a full split).
There are a reasonable number of knockouts from the MT/KB stylists, there are a bunch of TKD people in there that are still doing slappy knee kicks...
Of course, no one is denying that guys like Daniels can utilize a style like that more effectively because there is no holding. But before you bash too hard, remember that boxing allows no holding either...
We already have a stand up fighting program in K-1.
At least they didn't call it Extreme Point Sparring because, that's all it is.

WCL...FULL CONTACT FIGHTING (with little booties on)

I mean he got KTFO. Twice, IIRC (seperate shows, of course). And it was Pete Spratt.
6/12/2007 11:38am, #27
I found 3 times where spratt fought he won 2 and lost one.
6/12/2007 12:01pm, #28
Then it was only once, I guess. Still made me laugh, though, since I really was not impressed with Spratt after TUF 4.
BTW, your info can't be up to date because I know Spratt had a loss on points as well as the KO loss. So he's lost at least twice in the WCL.
Edit: Not that anyone cares, but I found contradictory info on the WCL website. I found stuff referring to Spratt's loss to Engel as a "KO" and a "15-7" loss (which would not have been a KO). So he may be 3-1, as Cyril found. Either way, Spratt got tooled in his loss. I recall him getting KO'd, but that could be because he got rocked/knocked down several times in the fight.

Call me a tard, but I really like their ring. I'd like to see it used in MMA, just to see what'd happen when there's no cage to push people against, or no ropes to get entangled in.

Tard would be if you wanted to change the MMA rules to match the WCL.
I've always wondered what would happen with out the ring or cage.
