If it’s true that behind Chuck Norris’ beard is another fist, then behind Luke Thomas’ ratty goat there is an even grouchier Luke Thomas who likes to stick it to The Man. Check out Luke’s latest tirade against Chuck’s World Combat League:
I cannot tell you how sorry the WCL is, not only for being outright adversarial with the UFC but for also putting on a very sub-par product.
What’s interesting is that a representative from the WCL contacted me and asked that I pass on info to you – the readers of the site – about upcoming WCL events. Yet, directly in the press release they gave me was more of their anti-MMA talking points, most notably, “Knock outs, not tap outs.” Just as I told that rep then I will tell you now: I will never – NEVER – support Chuck Norris or the WCL until this “us vs. them” positioning is gone. Period.
What makes this worse is that Norris is a black belt in BJJ under the Machado brothers. For him to insult their contribution by adopting the redneck view that ground action is boring should be enough to hang his head in shame, to say nothing of his Mike Huckabee endorsement (evolution anyone?).
So please, if anyone from the WCL is reading this, do yourselves a favor and do not contact me. If you do, I will not only ignore all of your requests to help your league, I will openly encourage this site’s readers to boycott anything and everything to do with the WCL.
I’m glad Luke is writing shit like this because I was getting tired of having to be the holier-than-thou blogger guy. I’m much happier being the glue sniffing blogger who likes the sniff glue. The more glue I sniff, the better the World Combat League gets. I dunno about Mike Huckabee though. I think I’d have to make some kind of hardcore turpentine / gasoline cocktail to get that dumb.
