As interesting as those facts were, Wikipedia isn't a credible source.

Just take some time to think how Bruce Lee and Figthing relate.

Don't you think that after watching the first UFC's he would have started training his ground game? I think that a modern day Bruce Lee would be something like GSP.

Dude, Lee totally tapped out Sammo Hung with a modified crucifix in Enter the Dragon, while wearing MMA style gloves. Modern MMA skillset in place by 1973..

Bruce Lee would make Fedor tap out to a staredown.

He arm bars his opponent in "Enter The Dragon" albeit a movie, but nonetheless a demonstration of the ground game at it's earliest stages. As an anecdote he would get challenged by the extras and needless to say he never lost. He reps with arms curls at 72 pounds and weighs 140 - 150lbs. He's in the 100% percentile. You have no idea what kind of a training methods he implemented. Go pick up one of his books and try it. You'll be crying and that's back in the 70's almost forty years ago. Workout regimen that's still being implemented today; dieting, weight lifting, strength training, boxing, sparring, and major conditioning.

GSP, Jerome Le Banner (why he fights south paw even though he's right handed), and Anderson Silva among probably many other MMA fighters idolize him and consider him their hero. It's the discipline, philosophy, and work ethic that separates him from many other martial artists. I was gonna let this thread go, but felt it's only right to back up someone who's put so much into the world of martial arts.

It's disgusting to compare. How about you take the MMA fighters of today with no knowledge or martial arts background and fight him in 73. They'd get tooled any day of the week. You can't beat what you can't catch. Based on his striking he could take out a good number of modern day MMA fighters. Implement a ground game which would probably take him no time to learn and you will have the ultimate fighter at his respective weight class. No doubt about it.

It's because of him that MMA exists.
Repped !
Just read and read and read some more about Bruce Lee. Not only his philosophy but was know to have one of the largest library of fighting styles. He had dojo's and trained some pretty famous people. We'll never know but I believe he wouldn't have been killed so to speak. Seriously read some books on him and it'll change your mind. He's the one that put martial arts on the map. Not an actor but a real fighter.

You might want to look up the definition of "citation". WP is only as credible as the sources it cites and that article cites dozens. Take issue with the individual sources, not WP who's editors just aggregate information from other sources into articles.

If all these "Bruce Lee/MMA" Threads could join forces and bring Bruce back from the dead to see how ridiculous these threads are, that would be awesome.

I dunno if this is a joke, but I'll say what I always say when people say "But what about if eyegouging/throat strikes/groin kicks were legal?":
If these things were legal two things would be different:

a) the sport would not attract a high level of talent because intelligent and talented people generally do not want to be in a sport where being permanently maimed or killed is not only legal but a way to win. So we'd only see the most desperate losers out there doing the sport and

b) even if for some reason we still had our current high level of talent in the sport, it wouldn't be hard for current top-level mma guys to add these lethal and illegal strikes to their arsenals. If you are a world-class striker and grappler how hard is it to add these few skills to your game?

Plus, segal is fat and old now.

Segall would last 10 seconds maybe. He does have mean throat chops and clotheslines though
