They are fighting in a UFC style octagon with no rules and no protective gear. No gloves, cup, headgear, arm pads, nothing. I'm talking about Mike Tyson and Bruce Lee in their prime. The fact is Mike Tyson is a heavy weight boxer, while Bruce Lee is a light weight martial artist. If you was to place a $1000 bet, who would it be on?

Tyson would completely destroy Lee. This comparison is stupid as fvck

Tyson. Let's be realistic. Bruce Lee wasn't as indestructible as people made him out to be.

Tyson. As I became older I realized a lot of Bruce's feats were exaggerated, and just part of the mystique of his death.

The undisputed heavy weight champion obviously...

I like Bruce, but in reality, if Tyson manages to even graze Bruce with his fist, Bruce will be in serious trouble....

He died from either an allergic reaction to a sleeping pill, or allergic reaction to Marijuana at least that's what the autopsy says.

Don't be so naive, it was clearly a government set up. :P

Tyson would win and this is coming from a big Bruce Lee fan.

#12 Posted by indzman (17621 posts) -

Bruce Lee was black belt and tyson a boxer. Bruce Lee'd finish Tyson in no time if he was alive.

Your reasoning for saying Lee would win is that they are both martial artists?
#14 Posted by MetroidPrimePwn (12399 posts) -

I don't know anything about fighting (even sport fighting), but I do know that Mike Tyson in Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! is WAAAAAYY harder to beat than Dragon Chan in Super Punch-Out!, so I'm going with Mike Tyson.

#15 Posted by comp_atkins (31346 posts) -

tyson has a huge weight advantage and is still living. he would easily win

was Tyson a martial artist as well? You know martial artists have special moves which are quite deadly if applied appropiately, in this context i was saying lee got a chance.

I'm sure we could all agree that Bruce wouldn't go down like a b*tch but ehhh, Bruce at the end of the day was a movie star, he knew that and didn't try to hide it. He trained not to fight but for movie scenes. Tyson trained to fight, big difference there.

Yes, Tyson is a martial artist. That's how he made millions and became famous. Of course Lee would have a chance, but at a certain point mass, power, and the ability to take a punch would easily (I think) give it to Mike.
#19 Posted by indzman (17621 posts) -

Oh i take back my word as i didn't knew Tyson was a martial artist as well. Then Mike Tyson will win as he will be able to predict/block and even counteract lee's moves plus he got more advantages as body mass, height, strenght over lee lol.

Bruce Lee was tiny. He'd be destroyed by Tyson in his prime.

HE'S A WRECKING MACHINE

So because you now know that boxing is a martial art you think it's more effective than it was before you knew that?
#27 Posted by Oleg_Huzwog (21885 posts) -

Lee wouldn't make it through the first round.

#28 Posted by supa_badman (16627 posts) -

Why WOULDN'T the obvious choice be Tyson?

Dude was massive, and Lee was small. Not to take away from whatever reputation Lee has, but Tyson would be so much stronger if they were both in their prime

#29 Posted by Gamefan1986 (1323 posts) -

Bruce Lee would win because Tyson would only know how to fight with his fists while Lee knew a lot about everything, and would have had more experience in real fights.

Sure Tyson would have the size advantage, but Lee would have a massive speed, knowledge, and experience edge. Plus Lee was pretty damn strong himself, he did 2 finger pushups easier than most people reach around to wipe their butts before they flush.

It's not that Mike Tyson is strong(he is/was); it's Mike's ability to get his ass Rodney king'd in the face and still have the physical ability to get up.

#32 Posted by EatShanna (875 posts) -
Mike Tyson. Bruce Lee is dead, corpses don't put up much of a fight. I have to give this one to Tyson, in his prime he could take a severe beating and keep going, and all it would it take is one punch anywhere on Lee's body and he'd be knocked down.

If Lee got him down to the ground he wouldn't let him back up again without choking him out.

He wouldn't get him to the ground though. Tyson had at least 40 pounds and three to four inches in height on Lee.

Tyson could do the same, neither one of them were concentrated in groundfighting.

Im not even a slight fan of Bruce, but he most certainly didn't "trained for movies". You should see the kind of brutal training that chinese kids would undergo for being martial artists. Jackie Chan for example was pretty much tortured as a kid.

Tyson would KILL Lee in one hit. It wouldn't even be close.

He probably believes that martial arts doesn't include boxing. Its like the people who think that martial arts and military arts are something different...martial and militar are literally synonymous.

Is there a kitten watching the fight? If so, then Bruce Lee. He draws power from the kitty.

Bare fist Tyson punches would be deadly,Lee wouldn't stand a chance

Lee was used to take an inmense beating and he could still get up seconds. Being honest, if we are talking about resilence here, i'd say that Lee would have the edge.

If Lee took one hit from Tyson, he would not be getting up. He may literally be dead. Lee couldn't do any damage to him anyway. The weight difference is too immense.

Oh and for the guys who dont know: Lee won 3 boxing competitions, and he was never a boxer., he only used Wing Chun to defeat all of his boxing opponents. And he was also a hong kong gang member and it is known that he broke his opponent's arm in one fight when they sucker punched him so hard in the eye that he almost lost it. Yeah, I'd say he would definitely have the edge.

None of that would matter. The physical difference between the two would be like a 5 year old fighting a regular grown man.
