I heart WCL

For some reason the World Combat League, which I assume is the reincarnated IFL, airs in my area on ALN, which is a conservative sort of tightassed channel.

I loved this when it was the IFL, and I love it still.

1) The wonky rules interest me. You can't throw an elbow, but you can throw knees, for example.

2) Lots and lots of chick fights. I saw one of my idols, Alicia Ashley, the other night and I couldn't sit down.

3) The rounds are relatively short, and therefore it's very fast-paced.

4) They have a yellow card system, which evokes nice Pride memories.

The only drawback is that there is no grappling, but I have the UFC and Strikeforce, etc., for that.

Discuss.

The IFL and WCL have no association in any way whatsoever. WCL is kickboxing. IFL was mixed martial arts.

Yellow cards rule! UFC is lame for not utilizing these during hug offs and stalls.

Uh, yeah, chick fights are action packed fun!

Chick fights FTW!! I haven't seen this yet, I don't think I get that channel but I will keep my eyes open for it!

Forgot to mention that the ring is really cool in the WCL. There is not a cage or ropes, but the outer rim of the mat is angled up as to naturally keep the opponents in the combat zone. Brilliant and effective!

Haven't watched this one, but here's a link to check it out:

Thank you for reminding me. I LOVE that ring.

I got confused re: IFL/WCL due to the regional team names.

Could it be that the IFL was bought out and overhauled by the new owners?

No, they have never been associated even though they both utilize(d) the team aspect. M-I Global Challenge is like the IFL.

the WCL is still going huh? I liked it at first but its very annoying to watch now. Retarded refs that wont shut up and the fast pace makes for sloppy fights. Its a "what could have been" promotion to me sadly.

Does someone know the size of those gloves? It looks like it is between mma and boxing gloves. They should be mma size and then I would watch it. I believe that the wcl system has potential because most people just want to see standup. And lighter gloves size is more entertaining, but it is still too big for my taste.
