    Smile World Combat League

    CROWNING AMERICA'S TOUGHEST CITY
    What city can boast that it has America's toughest martial arts fighters? That question will be answered in 2006, with the debut of the World Combat League!

    The World Combat League (WCL) is an original brainchild of the action film and television star Chuck Norris. Mr. Norris has brought together the world's most experienced martial arts producers to make the vision become reality. Norris Family Films and the USI companies (ISKA and ISKA Entertainment), with Chuck Norris as the creative head, have joined together to present the next major American sporting league, and the next generation of martial arts combat.

    Sir,

    Sounds interesting. Reading the rules section and generally it looks as if its going to be a stand up striking game only, which will be good to see as the majority of the other cage events are ground orientated.

    I do think its a little too strick stand up though. It states that sweeps and take downs are not allowed at all. Thats kind of dissapointing. I understand they want to keep the action flowing at all times but I think that sweeps and takedows should be allowed if the follow ups are instant without going into the guard / mount.

    Look forward to viewing the events anyway (if it makes it to english tv that is)

    Question Re: World Combat League

    Hmmm.... Many forms of this have been tried over the last 40+ years I've been around. Now with all the reality shows, internet, glossy print mags that come and go, it'll probably have it's run.
    I wonder if we should build a Coliseum with lions, tigers, bears, et al?
    More titilation for the numbed viewing audience....
