Bruce was by all accounts incredibly fast. I would imagine by that fact alone he would light up quite a few guys. And just lol @ him having no documented fights. The mans whole evolution as a fighter started from a challenge match.

theshooter - "No. Back then they didn't have strength training like they do now. I would out power him"


Bruce Lee was not a big guy, but he was very strong for his size. Underestimating him would be a big mistake.
Ants are strong for there size... They still get stepped on.

If you respect tradition and lineage, no one on this thread would say that they can beat up bruce lee. That's like saying you could beat up Clint Eastwood. They were fucking badasses when you guys were in diapers eating cheerios off the floor. Those guys are legends and were heroes to millions of people. I don't care if you're Anderson fucking Silva - out of respect, you better say that Bruce Lee would kick your ass. And if I remember correctly, Anderson Silva, in an interview, stated that he cannot beat Bruce Lee and called him "the master". (Of course AS can beat up Bruce Lee, even with a hand tied behind his back, but note how the GOAT has eternal respect for his childhood idol? Learn from him.)

Let me put it another way. Would you say that you could beat up your dad? No. Even though as an adult you probably can, you would never ever tell someone that you can beat up your dad. (Well, unless your dad was horrible and abusive or something like that, then that's different.)

As I said before, it depends completely on the venue. If you're standing in front of him and, say insult him, or threaten him and give him 'cause' he would just eye jab you in 0.05 - 0.08 seconds and then pick you apart.

But in the ring with gear on, and you both know you're in a 'fight', he would be hopelessly out-classed, vulnerable to the takedown and G&P of today's modern MMA fighter.

Bruce seemed like a cool and really nice guy. But with his training, strength, speed, ect. He wouldnt be an easy street fight for anyone. He's gonna be a ruthless mean little fucker in a fight. He would rip your eyes out, bite your nose off. Hell he would probably bite your balls off. I think he would rather die than lose a fight.

kikenyoy - 
FatBuddha - I think the answer is pretty much yes he could kick the ass of this entire forum in a street fight. By all accounts, his striking was Anderson Silva-like, and he trained his mind and body like no other.

Agreed about his striking, but what about his lack of knowledge of the ground? You are such a GJJ nuthugger that it surprises me that you'd say this. I think a purple belt with good wrestling beats him more often than not. You disagree?

"gjj nuthugger" - ha, probably guilty of that one. But I'm also an instructor under Guru Dan Inosanto (Bruce Lee's student) in JKD and Kali and trained for years with Sifu Francis Fong in Wing Chun (whom Guru Dan considers the closest to Bruce Lee of anyone he's ever met).

I have great love and faith in classical Gracie Jiujitsu but with the explosion of sport bjj I'm willing to bet 99% of this forum doesn't train old vale tudo gjj and entering into the clinch against a striking opponent on a weekly basis. In a street fight then, I have a hard time thinking most on this forum could clinch Bruce...if you don't train it consistantly it's not as easy to clinch a ridiculous striker as you may think. And wing chun has anti-clinch techniques and standing grappling techniques unlike boxing. Most wing chun guys can't fight but the few who can (including Bruce) were no joke.

In addition, it seems that Bruce at least had basic judo based ground skills. With his intellgience and conditioning, it doesn't seem like he'd be an idiot who would get subbed quickly against someone on the ground. But that's kind of a non-issue. I'm basing most of my opinion on most of us being unable to clinch Bruce in the first place.

Periodik - 
Alumynabjj - 
Periodik - Alot of people forget that Bruce Lee trained extensively with Judo Gene LeBell and other high level grapplers.

So taking him down might not get you the result you're looking for...


He did not train extensively. That is a lie. If I trained bjj for six months three times a week and started telling people on here that I have extensive training people would mock the shit out of me. Why the different standard for Bruce? Also, I bet Bruce even had less training then that with Gene.

I'm sorry to disappoint you but Bruce and Gene cross-trained for over a year.

To the point that when asked how Bruce would fair in modern day MMA, LeBell said he would do great in his weight class.

Bruce also trained with Wally Jay for awhile.

Am I saying that Bruce was a black belt?

Of course not, what I'm trying to inform you on, is that if you took Bruce Lee to the ground your white belt or even blue belt would have trouble with his knowledge and explosiveness.


^ this is correct. He also trained with my friend and teacher Sensei Fred Sato, a judo master who lives in Seattle and started judo in the 1930s. Him and Bruce were good friends. He's 85 now and has a lot of stories about his ridiculous physical ability. Sensei Sato was actually an american high school football star and football and wrestling coach for over 50 years and not impressed with any mystical mumbojumbo or asian metaphysical martial arts claims. But he speaks about Bruce as if his ability was something...extraordinary

eagleswhat1 - Have you ever seen Bruce Lee fight? I know I haven't...I know he just regurgitated a bunch of shit older Martial Artists said 100's of year's ago. He was a small quick man with horrible kicking mechanics and could easily be beat up in the clinch taken down and busted up badly by any decent High School Wrestler/Football Player. The 70's were all about Kung Fu and Karate in the states, so when a Bruce came in with his slick ass talk and incredible movies of course we bought all that mystic 140lb man could make shoulders touch with a one inch punch.....GROW THE FUCK UP

Like others have said, bruce was an innovator. He was very skilled and had badass athleticism and quickness. That said, martial arts has evolved so much since that time. He would get absolutely smashed.

I guess I'll jump in.

I'm a little dude (135). But I was a good college wrestler and a good mixed martial artist. I would have beaten up Bruce Lee.

But I respect the shit out of him.

CREamed_by_DongJ - I would have folded him in half with a body shot

CRE would hurt Lees ancestors with that shot.

michelleNrogersdumpsterbaby - lol to anyone who says yes, you'd have to lay your hands on the guy first to out power him. An I just dont see that happening. People who think just cuz they have some muscles they can fight crack me up.


Bruce Lee would KTFO anyone on this website
Haha this!! I love how people spend their life in the gym, get pumped up on steroids and think they can take the world on, I've seen plenty come unstuck

CREamed_by_DongJ - 

I don't know why I am getting shit for being honest.

I have way more legit grappling experience than Bruce, I also probably have muay thai training.

I am 6'4 210+ lbs, I have given solid purple belts in the past very competitive rolls who are the same height/weight.

How is he going to beat me up again?

weight classes exist for a reason, it wouldn't be that close of a fight, go watch Semmy Schilt bully the GP again then beep me.

I just don't get it, how is bruce lee going to beat me up?

I would dominate the clinch, I have the range on him, all he has is speed and athleticism, maybe strength, I am glad that he was strong and could do 1 finger pushups, I would ragdoll him due to sheer physics. I would hold him down and pound on him ala Thiago Silva/Vera... 

The funny thing is it's not even impressive to think you could beat him up, he was like 130 and a great actor.

All of the smaller people who have ever done well against me in training would destroy him also, lmao wtf.

Bruce Lee was one of my idols, he's a founding father of MMA, but let's not act like the myths are true.

The one thing I couldn't beat Bruce Lee in that really matters is the game of life, I could never leave a legacy that holds up to his, he's a really commendable martial artist and deserves all the respect, but I won't pretend any version of him could just walk through me.




You'd never get a hold of the man, that's a damn dream. The man fought in many real fights how many have you fought in? There is a difference you know?

Why no listen to Chuck and Gene on Bruce, the UG accepts them as legit. They will tell you fast the man was a world class martial artist and they trained with him. Are you?

Hell I'd bet I've been in more real fights then you myself. Crap when I fought NHB (no rules or time limits) I chopped a couple guys your size without really getting even touched. Your talking about trying to put grease lighting in a damn bottle.
