the reason for that is because

1# lee wasnt a fighter he was a teacher
(who ALLEDGEDLY had a few scuffles)

2# because lee didnt really evolve anything in mma.
he espoused virtues that can be broadly taken as wise advice today but when mma got rolling as a sport it was still very much single discipline vs single discipline.
