Bruce Lee In MMA

I havent been to this forum in a while but I just had to post this.

I saw an overwhelmingly positive response to Bruce Lee in MMA on youtube. And people there thought he would dominate guys like BJ Penn and GSP.

Now I know a lot of the members here are more sane so my thoughts may reflect most people here. Bruce Lee was a pioneer of his time but martial arts has evolved since then. In all the tournaments that he did enter, how badly was he able to dominate his opponent? I think people are forgetting that Bruce Lee was a great individual but he was also human.

If you can do a once inch punch in a very controlled environment where your allowed time to generate power, good for you. But thats not applicable in 1 on 1 combat. If you have a few moves of grappling incorporated into your style, good for you. But dont expect to dominate guys if you havent actually grappled on a consistent basis.

I personally think Bruce Lee, if he entered MMA now in his prime and knew only what he knew back in his days, he would get dominated by D class fighters.

He would get raped and feel shame.

he'd have to fight in Strikeforce because the UFC doesn't have a women's division

I'm sure Jmac wouldn't wanna fight his life partner, so Strikeforce is probably the best place for him.

J/k Brucie.

Couldn't resist.

1. Bruce Lee beat Chuck Norris in a movie. Chuck Norris is a legendary tough guy. He is so tough he doesn't wear a condom. Because there is no such thing as protection from Chuck Norris. Yet Bruce beat him down.

2. Bruce beat Kareem Abdul Jabbar, who not only had a 2 foot reach advantage but also scored 38,387 points in the NBA.

3. Bruce kicked the ass of the guy with knives for hands in the hall of mirrors. 'Nuff said.

4. Bruce's Kung Fu is very strong.

5. If Bruce truly wanted to, he could have easily slammed KOWarrior throught the crust of the Earth.

I'll leave the conclusions to you, but it seems obvious to me.
