    LOL.

    I wasn't really trying to troll you, Matt. Ok I kinda was.
    Did I pass the test, Great One?

    My clinchwork and sweeps are second only to my preference for counterpunching!
    Heh. You know, I'm really not just nutriding when I say I've seen some seriously sweet counters in the WCL. I saw one guy duck a right and come up with a knee to the gut that crumpled the other guy. It was like a move from a movie. And that I say simply as a fan.



    Next, someone should start a thread bashing FCR rules KB. Then I can nutride that. For I also like the SHINY PANTS!

    Nobody mentioned the little booties. They don't just wear shin guards..they wear little foam booties on their feet...it is a disgrace...

    Guy #1 We need a new fighting sport based solely on striking
    Guy #2 Oh...that would be too brutal
    Guy #1 No...don't worry. We will pad everything they hit with.
    Guy #2 Oh. Ok.

    I don't care if Guy#1 is Chuck Norris or Guy#2 is Chuck Norris. To me the whole thing is stupid.

    Point sparring pretty much encompasses the little booties.

    Right now it is, for me, continuous point sparring with out the chest protectors.

    I didn't know booties were a part of point sparring.

    FCR kickboxing is even worse than WCL no nutriding the SHINY PANTS! Anything where they count the number of kicks and make that an integral part of the scoring is retarded. Also any striking without leg kicks is retarded. YES EVEN BOXING! I want to see boxing with leg kicks. New Ultimate combat sports!

    It may not be a match of unskilled flailing, but it's still a slugfest, however "crispy" the kicks and punches may be.

    It is very entertaining to watch, but ****, there is no strategy. If a fighter cannot circle, evade, retreat and/or clinch without getting penalized, what else is left of strategy? As WS said, K-1 already had a good unified striking rules. Sanshou rules would have been great as well. ****, if they didn't want the clinch to slow the pace, they could have allowed throws from the clinch, and give penalties if someone clinches without doing anything with it.

    WCL is entertaining. Man, I love to watch it. However, I think it was a missed opportunity to implement something more lively.

    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

    Agreed. I actually do like FCR just because of the action and pace, but counting kicks is lame. I thought maybe they had left that behind, because in the last couple televised fights I saw, the commentators never made mention of it and the kicking did not seem forced in any way. I assume that I am incorrect in thinking that?

    It may not be a match of unskilled flailing, but it's still a slugfest, however "crispy" the kicks and punches may be.
    *sigh* Conceded. But I also agree that the sport is young and hope it will grow/evolve and work out some of the kinks, so to speak.

    Sanshou rules would have been great as well.
    Actually, I really like watching San Shou. I wish they'd show more of it on TV instead of the same fight from 2003 of Cung Le tooling up some guy who appears to never have fought San Shou before in his life!

    Actually, I think most of them wear standard shin-instep gaurds. The guy in my avatar is. As to why they do, I think the answer is pretty simple. They want fast paced action with lots of KOs, but they don't want blood and "brutality". So they pad the shins on the same principle as padding the hands. It helps to reduce cuts. So you don't have guys bleeding all over the place. ...Not that there's anything wrong with that!

    You're right in terms of hope for evolution. I seem to recall that they didn't allow knees at all in the first season. Which pissed me off from the get go. Can anyone confirm that?

    I just found an article that says they used to make them wear booties but they don't now.

    Anyone else curious when a Kyokushin guy will realize that their grand ultimate technique is legal in this silly ruleset?

    I think they could throw knees but had to do it without use of there hands. Now they can clinche throw one knee and then the have to let go and continue fighting.
