Too many people are unable to seperate fact from myth about Bruce Lee.

First off, he never fought and beat a bunhc of karate champions in tournaments. There is no record of any fights of any rules other than heresay. Due to complete unavaibility of attaining any kind of boxing records in China, you can't even really count his supposed amateur bouts in Hong Kong.

Essentially there is no proof of Bruce Lee's fighting capacity aside from a very few accounts, and of them there is huge disagreeances as to what really happened.

Here's what we do know, he was a phenomenal athlete and Martial Artist. Through his movie career he connected with a great many other solid Martial Artist who all respected him. He was known to be strong and fast, but there is no recorded measurement of him being faster than someone can blink. That being said, it isn't unheard of for many Martial Arts to go from hand at the waist to face level in half a second. (Watch Fight Science: Special Operations for examples of this).

There was no shortage of venues for Bruce Lee to have tested his skills, in the 70s full contact tournaments, and open rule kumites were all readily available especially in California. He choose not to compete in these things, for whatever his reason may be (understandably he had nothing to gain, and everything to lose).

St. Pierre, Silva, Rampage, etc. These are guys who are also elite level athletes, guys who have spent just as much time learning Martial Arts as Bruce did. (Keep in mind he died at 32, he started training at age 13, so in total he had 19 years of Martial Arts, St. Pierre started at Age 6 (he is 30 now) and has trained in Martial Arts for 24 years, Silva has been training in Martial Arts for 27 years (Boxing at 10, he is 37). Chuck Liddell has been training in Martial Arts for 30 years, (he started at 12, and is 40) And these guys receive some of the best training partners in the world.

In all honestly all these guys have been training in multiple Martial Arts longer than Bruce Lee did at the time of his demise. The ignorant people above who blindly follow and think that Bruce Lee was this amazing master and that MMA guys are not Martial Artists, fail to realize that most of the names in MMA have been studying Martial Arts longer than Bruce Lee did, and are also amazing physical and genetic specimens.

Since Bruce Lee himself pretty much threw off his old training calling it ineffective when he started developing Jeet Kune Do, that should at least tell you that it wasn't as if he learned some ancient chinese secret that would make him invincible in a fight.

He was a strong fast, genetically gifted, and talented Martial Artist. He was a very prominant actor, capable of amazing feats. He understood fighting, and the need to be capable in all ranges.

He was not Superhuman, a Super Hero, or so surpassing natural law that he would be able to take on professional fighters who have been training longer, had more fights, and outweighed him by at least 50lbs of muscle.

To think otherwise is unrealistic.

It is well known that Bruce Lee often commented on Mohammed Ali and professional boxers as people who he would never cross.

Bruce Lee himself wouldn't go around spouting that he could take out today's modern day MMA fighters. It is the evolution of a movement he firmly believed in. He didn't fight professional fighters back then, and he wouldn't fight them now. But I promise you he would be a huge fan.

Bruce Lee was a great Martial Artist, a great athlete, and a great figure. He wasn't an invincible fighting machine.

Even if you believe every bit of the hype, he never fought anywhere near the skill level that Silva, St. Pierre or Liddell has had to fight on a regular basis, nor did he fight nearly as many people.

But as it stands, most of his fights are heresay with one witness and never confirmed by more than one or two parties who have an active interest in keeping the Legend alive.

Everyone one of Silva, Liddell, and St. Pierre's fighting skills have been put on display in front of millions of people.

I love Bruce Lee, I believe firmly in his philosophies, and respect him tremendously. But I am not unrealistic as to go merely on blind faith that he would be so much more talented, so superhumanly fast or strong, that he would overwhelm other naturally talented, genetically strong and fast individuals. Especially ones that have been training longer, fighting professionally, and outweigh him by at least 50lbs of muscle.

That is just fantasy. But that should point just how big his legend is, people are willing to suspend disbeleif at any odds when it comes to his name and figthing, despite never having actually seen him fight.

Nice first post there buddy.

Lee wins...This is a "street fight". As far as I know, Lee was involved in many in his earlier days in China with rival gang members...In a "sancttioned boxing match" with rules he would get trashed and he'd probably be the 1st to admit that as he was a huge fan of Ali and inspired by him....but in a street fight with no rules, and Lee able to use his full repertoire of skills, he should be able to take Ali.

Bruce Lee was all flash no substance

What? Bruce Lee learned Wing Chun from Yip Man. He wasn't a push over at all. You are sadly mistaken if you think he was just some actor with no skill. His speed, Martial Arts skill, boxing skill, etc. would take Ali.

I think it matters in a boxing match with rules but a boxer against a martial artist with no rules is something different.

From what I know, size and strength are advantages in striking martial arts such as boxing and muay thai, but in grappling martial arts like judo and aikido, those things don't matter much at all.
