    It was all right. Still way better than X-arm or that 2-on-2 MMA league.

    If you breathe air in a room where Chuck Norris exhaled, you instantly become UFC caliber.

    I had family fight in that. Good fun. Saw Pat Barry, Uriah Hall, Chidi, Lyman Good, Raymond Daniels, Wonderboy, Munah Holland, Jarell Miller, Jerri Sitzes, and a few other fighters in there too.

    Thanks for the reminders. I forgot Pat Barry was in WCL. Here is a video of him destroying some guy and apparently in WCL, you are allowed to keep going so long as you can stand:

    The scoring was so weird
    And the rules encouraged flying kicks where you don't land on your feet. You were allowed to stand up.

    And you could leg kick except as part of a combination

    At the time I never would have thought "WCL guy would get the better of Cro Cop" (until he broke his hands).

    Oh, and Raymond Daniels was sick. Now he is in Glory. I'll be interested to see how he does.

    Here is a highlight of him, mostly doing point fighting, but there is some good WCL highlights as well.

    Cama cross a channel called FOUK and this was on it, great stuff I thought.

    Great to see these guys go at it when they don't have to worry about getting wrestle fucked.
