Probably. I've never heard of him, plus he seems to be fighting against some chumps. He looks tough but anyone can go to the gym.

That guy looks like he belong in some sort of MMA or Strikeforce or some other "sport". Thats all I know about him and I don't care about him either. Bruce Lee has a martial art named after him. Bruce Lee would win.

So what if you have a martial art named after you? Tommy the Green Power Ranger has his own martial art. Toso Kune Do.

Not sure if serious... He's fought Mirko CroCop, Shogun Rua, Minotauro Noguiera, Vitor Belfort, Igor Vovchanchyn, and Chuck Liddell. And also K-1 Kickboxing legends Badr, Hari, Remy Bonjasky

He only lost to Liddell, Rua, Nogueria, and Bonjasky. And Liddell, Rua and Nogueria was also when he was a light heavyweight. He's gotten much better and much stronger since then. But your argument was that he fights chumps. And that isn't the case, even if he loses some.

I don't know about the guy in the picture, but it was said on the tv show QI that boxer Mohammed Ali could beat Bruce Lee in a fight because boxers are able to get in more punches and do more damage than Bruce Lee could from any kick.

So they DO have something on Lee. Lee is the 2nd most overrated fighter of all time, next to chuck norris.

I don't think anybody saying Chuck Norris is the greatest fighter is being serious. Surely nobody believes Chuck Norris kicked a man so hard his foot broke the speed of light, went back in time and killed Amelia Earhart while she was flying over the Pacific Ocean:o

Bruce Lee. I saw him in a movie.

Bruce Lee beat Chuck Norris in Enter the Dragon. /thread
#25 Posted by UnknownElement4 (2603 posts) -

I think Bruce Lee would win, easily.

#26 Posted by Overlord93 (12602 posts) -

something like this was on QI. They said bruce lee would lose to a boxer/UFC or whatever everytime. His kicks were sped up in the films and no where near as fast as punches thrown by these guys

You know what is funny about that, though? People say Bruce is the greatest, yet Chuck isn't even close. Chuck Norris is the same as Bruce Lee. Both actors who do martial arts on the big screen. Both have their own martial arts. Both even had "fights". Except Norris has actually competed in plenty of tournaments to test his skills. Guess how many Bruce has competed in? Maybe 1 or 2. And other than that, they are basically the same. Only difference? Chuck is white, and Bruce is Chinese. The way I see it, people respect Bruce more because he came from China and "looks" more like we picture a "martial artist" should look like. But here is a tip... there is no "look" or a martial artist. They can be any race or ethnicity, from anywhere in the world. Bruce is not the fastest of all time, he's not the biggest or strongest, either. There are a TON of people who were and people who are better at fighting than Bruce Lee.

They're not even close to the same weight class. Why not compare him with one of the lightweight UFC fighters?

Because I wanted to see how many people actually think Bruce Lee can beat a 255 pound monster, who is one of the best martial artists in the world in the heavyweight division, much less a division that Bruce would fight in at about 145 pounds.

There's no martial art called Bruce Lee. It's called Jeet Kun Do? Or something like that? Anyways, MMA> that

bruce would get seriously injured against and top mma guy now, epsically a top hw like overeem

First of all, this alistair is 205 pounds... http://bleacherreport.com/articles/392819-alistair-overeems-success-throws-wrench-in-accepted-weight-theorem Second, Bruce lee is a freakin stick! I mean, isnt he like 5'6"? In the end people, lets be honest, does the height and weight truly matter? Overall it is their mental state that matters, I seen on TV some big guy who was a MMA fighter get owned by a much smaller person who was on the martial arts side like lee. I read that height only helps up to fifteen percent, the rest is intelligence. Though if a small person is a stick like Bruce Lee... Which is probably why he died.. Then size will matter. Bruce Lee is like Sylvester Stallone, Stallone had a really good boxing movie, but he never even did boxing... I think Chuck Norris is a better comparison, Bruce Lee was not that healthy considering he died at 30... He was just really lean, so his mucles looked bigger.

Are we talking The Alistair Overeem before or after he unloaded a truckload of steroids into his mouth?

That would explain the 255 pound comment.. I was thinking "how the hell does anyone get that big?"

First of all, he beat Chuck Norris in a movie. Second of all, you're comparing Chuck Norris to this guy?:

He could literally murder Chuck Norris with his bare hands.

Well, it's never been proven that he has taken steroids. And to fight in the United States, you have to pass drug tests before your fight. It is possible to be on steroids and not show up on a test, but I'm just saying that he has never failed a drug test. It's only speculation because he went from kind of big, to fricking huge with low bodyfat in about 3 years.

Bruce Lee. Why? Because this would be Bruce Lee:  You aren't ****ing with that. [spoiler] Disclaimer: Bruce Lee would likely not win, it is an unfair fight. Bruce Lee's just cooler. [/spoiler]
