So I've been watching that WCK a lot because it's on late nights and takes place here in Vegas. What I notice when watching is that almost every fight is greatly effected by the Fighters' posture. For purposes of boxing, the way my partner and I like to phrase posture is "chin down, chest up." The "chest up" part being an important cue because a lot of bad things happen if you slouch and do not have the athleticism built-in to make up for being in a more poor position. This old rendition of Bendigo is a nice demonstration of good upper-body boxing positioning: But it's pretty interesting that this REALLY stood out to me watching a muay thai circuit. Almost every fighter with very good posture had a distinct advantage. They secured lower angles easier, controlled distance easier, got hit flush significantly less, and due to there being no bend of their spines (you guys who have wrestling experience, think of HOW you achieve your takedown, at what point the opponent becomes weak to your leverage), they had much stronger stances in general. Now, it's difficult to find WCK bouts because they're so new and I've not seen very many online yet. But when looking up certain fighters I could see the same thing in other bouts where they were very successful. One of them is a guy with a Karate background (so it makes sense) named Joey Pagliuso, note the difference in simple efficiency of the delivery of his techniques against an opponent who had more experience as a Professional: Yelle has pretty poor upper-body posture. Strong legs. But the general slouching of his shoulders results in the distinct inability to keep his chin out of harm's way. When he gets hit, he gets hit FLUSH...and HARD. Joey, on the other hand, isn't bothered by being hit nearly as much. Now, I have seen Joey get smacked around by Jack Thames, but it's of not that Thames also has very good posture despite flirting with being in bad position to draw his opponent out. But, Joey fought another guy in the WCK with poor posture in general and spanked him. So I challenge you all to find a fight like this where posture makes a HUGE difference.
