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?

No Sl1ck is right. I don't think lee would be comfortable in the ring. And as much as we want to believe in Bruce Lee, I don't think he would do that well in the UFC or Pride.

I have to go with Sl1ck on this one too. We can't really know how comortable or uncomfortable Bruce would be in a cage or a ring. I don't know much about his grappling skills, but as far as I know he was a pretty one dimensional fighter and even with strength and speed if you don't have the ground skills you'll get destroyed.

He'd be fun to watch against Jeremy Horn or St. Pierre, but if you put him the octagon with a dominant fighter like Matt Hughes or Rich Franklin he would get destroyed, I just don't think he would last on the ground.

We have to remember that Bruce Lee was still human, even being as exra-ordinary as he was.

well aside from the last post obviously being made to just make a post ( just messing with ya) BRuce lee actually did have some grappling skill, he studied alot of Ju-jitsu, just since it does not really make for an exciting movie you did not see much of it, you get a small taste in Game of Death when he is fighting Kareem at the end not much but he does beat him by choking him out and he does some leg locks and such again not much, but the skill was there just not showcased in his movies and such

True.

People should look up some actual fact on Bruce Lee, rather than looking just at his movies. To the average folk (AKA, not us.) Groundfighting and ground and pound, is boring, and looks like two sweaty men rubbing against each other. That does not make for a good movie. So, they do not showcase it.

I like the ground and pound fights like that of the old Mark "the Hammer" Coleman, Oleg Takterov(sp?) and groundfighting of the Gracies.
