Bruce Lee would use his favorite technique.....And win.

Media: "Bruce what's your favorite technique?"

Bruce: "A Gun."

Yeah, his work ethic was godly, haha.

Based on the fact that there are now weight classes in the UFC, Lee would have to fight at welterweight, currently the lowest weight class. So, he would have to face someone like Matt Hughes. Hmmm let me see Bruce Lee versus Matt Hughes. Lee was about 5'6" and 135lbs. He was lightening fast and could hit like a mule. If he bulked up I would suppose he would lose what made Bruce Lee, Bruce Lee. So we have Bruce Lee in his prime versus the Matt Hughes who fought Royce Gracie. Result: Hughes by submission or referee stops contest. Bruce is one of my heros and one of the reasons I studied Wing Chun for 10 years but you have to cut through all the entertainment show biz fighting and realize that a good big man always beats a good small man. Size does matter. Especially in a contest with rules and rounds.

Now Bruce with some mma training going up against a man of his own stature, man I'd hate to be his opponent.

And finally, what if Bruce Lee met up with Matt Hughes in the park and for whatever reason got into it. Then I would say that Matt Hughes would not know what hit him. Using vital striking points, shoes, no gloves and no rules would be advantage Lee. Especially because Matt Hughes would be facing the kind of attack he never has seen or has had experience combating. Kinda reverse of what Lee would be facing against Hughes in the octagon.

Excellent post man some very very excellent points if I recall Chuck norris made a similar comment about bruce after bruce lost in one of his rare tournament appearences that Chuck said in a real fight with no rules bruce would have destroyed him ( now this might just be rumor if anyone out there knows for sure if they even fought I would like some confirmation) and yea Bruce lee did not enter many tournements for the simple reason his style was not intended for competition it was for real combat his moves and techniques were designed to do as much damage as possible and kill if necceassary.
Once again awesome post DAT.

Great question

I have always thought about who would win that fight if it did occur and I also agree that Bruce outside the octagon would most likely win with his speed alone but inside the cage I think he would struggle a bit.

What I would like to see is Matt Hughes against Chuck Lidell or something. Royce fought people twice his size and won so lets see what Hughes can do with a match like that.

I think the main difference now is the new rules when gracie foguth in the early UFC there were really long or no time limits his style allowed him to take his time. the new UFC does not allow for that so it forces the action which goes against the basic principles of gracie ju-jitsu

and yea I think bruce would struggle a little in the ring but I think he'd win way more fights then he would have lost

I think Bruce vs Hughes may be a disaster for Bruce. Much like Gracie. Dont get me wrong, i wanted gracie to win and i had faith he would, and he got destroyed.
Fighters have evolved a lot, more well rounded.

Theres also many other factors when it would come to bruce vs ?? , would bruce be comfortable in the ring, could he utilize it?

The competitions that Bruce was apart of are different than that of today. I think Bruce would beat some fighters and lose to others.

I want to pose another question ontop of this.

How well do you guys think Tony Jaa from the movie (Ong Bak) would do in some lightweight/welterweight fights?

If you have seen his movies, he posses some of the most unique Muay Thai techniques seen. Very innovative air kicks, grappling holds/takedowns. Lots of knees and elbows to effective areas. Hes very agile and quick. Almost a new Bruce lee but with ancient muay thai influences.
He can also take quite a load of punishment.

I think himself versus Nick Diaz or GSP would be quite an eyefull of a fight.
