Chuck Norris wins, only because that man still looks 60 when he's nearing 90.

Bruce Lee would mop the floor with Chuck Norris. Norris was bigger and likely a bit stronger, but Bruce was just so much smoother, faster, more flexible and more coordinated.

The Bruce Lee Vs. Chuck Norris fight was in "Way of the Dragon" not "Enter the Dragon" 


Just FYI.

Jeff's comment about Big John leaving the UFC is correct in every way.

No ref has the same ring presence as he did. And in terms of track record for fair calls, his has gotta be second to none.

Regardless of what actually happened there, Dana should have done everything in his power to fix the situation.

Sad loss.

On-topic more directly, shame this game didn't turn out. I was hoping for much better. Kind of fun at first (round?) but the gameplay is just soooo far off from what UFC is.

Wrong. Chuck was judo black belt and his kick boxing. He also has trained jujitsu. Bruce has more of the legendary thing going for him stemming from his untimely death. I'm a fan but the reality is Bruce wouldn't make it in the ufc and would have got worked by chuck.

@Furwings If I'm correct in recalling what I've read, Bruce Lee would -not- have won... because this fight never would have taken place.  He didn't care about fighting in tournaments because tournaments have rules, and he believed that real fights don't have rules.  He was more than willing to do things that aren't legal in tournaments:  eye-gouging, biting, etc., to win real fights. However, he also believed that "real fighting" was a last resort to be used if a person cannot escape or talk their way out of a situation.


Aside from that, however... yeah, your observation seems about right.

@ascendedcobra There are still people out there that find black belts impressive? My 12 year old cousin has a black belt in judo as well. He got it for showing up in class for three years. They're the martial arts equivalent to a children's soccer participation trophy and about as indicative to skill as a gold star sticker your forehead. Norris is, and always will be, a joke. A living relic of everything real MMA has spent the last 20 years rendering obsolete.

@ascendedcobra  Chuck was a competition fighter, Bruce was a street fighter.  Two very different things.  To say that Bruce Lee wouldn't make it in the UFC is ridiculous considering he is the godfather of Mixed Martial Arts.

Come on man. An open mind, theory, and acting will only get you so far. He would get taken down and subbed in like a minute. He wouldn't even know about triangle and rear naked chokes, the guard etc.. Even if he knew about any of these techniques he wouldn't be able to stop them. All his knowledge about martial arts was limited to what was known in the 1970's imagine him in ufc 1 vs royce gracie. Now imagine Royce can't even cut it in the ufc today. See where I'm going...
