Most of what looks good in movies doesn't work. I trained in karate for many years, and bought into all the "death punches" and all the hype of 10th degree black belt masters. Bruce Lee was a kung-fu master, so he would destroy everyone. Chuck Norris was the baddest man on the planet. Some 90-year old Shanghai master with a white beard could kill everyone in the world with his crazy fast hands. As I kid, I bought into all that stuff. But the more I learned about fighting, the more I realized most of that is bunk. I had a brown belt in karate and am not afraid to admit that I would get wrecked so badly in an MMA fight it wouldn't even be funny. So how would Bruce Lee do? About as well as any strong guy with some good standup skill but virtually no ground game.

If he went into mma with only what he knows. He would do bad. If he train in some grappling and take down defense then I think he would do pretty good. But I don't think he would be a title holder.

How so? He never competed in any sort of striking or submission competition. The vast majority of his training was in kung fu, not really a good sign. He spent maybe what, a few years actually trainging in anything resembling an mma style, and even that was mostly on his own, when real competitors like LeBell came to train with him, they beat him.

If he wasn't a movie star and plagerist "philosopher" nobody would have even known him then, let alone now. There were a large number of people around in his own day and long before who were crosstraining and would have beat him.

I would put money on anybody with an A-level Shooto license at 135 to beat him.

LeBell was like twice his size...

If he had trained for couple of years in today's MMA he could be top fighter at 135 easily. In terms of talent and natural ability he overtakes BJ Penn imo .

Than again Beebs feels otherwise .

That is beyond absurd, what the hell is there to base this off of? Nothing, that is exactly all there is, nothing but movies.

BJ Penn, won the mundials with 4-5 years of training, is the best 155 pound fighter, probably ever, has beat the best 170lb fighter ever, and fought as high as heavyweight, pretty well at that.

Bruce Lee on the other hand has done......well, I can't think of a single ****ing thing that he has done, can you? Wait I take that back, I think he won a cha-cha dancing championship, but he's never done anything worth mentioning, or anything at all, in terms of combative competition.

Honestly I'm still shocked at the BJ Penn comment, BJ ****ing Penn.

Lee would get tied in knots by this "BJ", forget BJ Penn. That makes me want to puke, its like comparing Sylvester Stallone to Mike Tyson.

Actually heres an insanely awsome picture of BJ in his last fight, where he busted Yasuhiro Akagi's Cauliflower ear open, making it bleed all over and causing a TKO.

I dont see how anyone can make an assesment, If he was living in this day and age and wanted to do MMA thats what he would train at including stand up and ground work, all you could say is that a man with his dedication to training would probably go far.
