    it just sucks because its going to end up turning into the WCL if all they want is non stop action.

    i find it weird that they bring in Muay Thai guys but basically remove any clinch game, sure if they're stalling or so then break it up and restart, but to do away with it completely is silly :dunno:

    guess they think no grappling, all striking = more exciting

    Makes for sense in America but not really Japan.
