The one and only urban legend, Chuck "Walker Texas Ranger" Norris was interviewed recently about his new fight league, "World Combat League" which is team based similar to the International Fight League (IFL) however, WCL doesn't include a cage or permit ground fighting as well, the fighters use boxing gloves to supposedly prevent concussions.
Chuck Norris on the UFC:
"Watching UFC over the last 20 years, when fighters go to the ground, they have become so proficient in avoiding submissions so it becomes boring," Norris said.
Chuck Norris on MMA's use of 4 Oz. gloves and cage fighting:
"That's way too dangerous from what I want," he said. "We also have an open area with no ropes and no wires that obstruct views."
Chuck Norris on the future of WCL:
"My heart has always been in martial arts and it's been part of my life for 47 years," he said. "I think if people come and see it, they'll become fans of the league. I hope they get behind their team."
Well Chuck, we all know you can the kick the crap out of anyone with merely a stern stare but this concept that you have created is nothing more than kickboxing without a ring... nothing new here except the resurgence of the Chuck Norris legendary Roundhouse Kick.
I would have included Chuck as the "Tool of the Day" except that Chuck would have done a a series of roundhouse kicks in the air out of sheer anger which would have created the world's most violent wind gusts causing a Tsunami somewhere on Earth, so for the sake of the innocent people and the holiday season, Chuck was spared being called a TOOL!
