All I did, was put Bruce Lee at the top of my list of fighters who made major contributions to MMA and suddenly all of these haterade drinkers started making Lee out to be some kind of a God.
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.
