Wing Chun

Do you think Wing Chun would work in MMA?

Pure Wing Chun definitely does not and so far no on has significantly incorporated Wing Chun into successful MMA fighting.

The thing is, Wing Chun wasn't designed for this kind of fighting. It's originally a women's self defense system and therefore designed to counter a completely different opposition than a 1 man vs 1 man competition.

I think however, in specific MMA situations specific Wing Chun methods and techniques could work (such as chain punches if the opponent attacks from the outside), but not Wing Chun as a whole.
