Dana Whites says "“Bruce Lee is the father of mixed martial arts".
Did anyone see that special on “How Bruce Lee Changed the World.” Dana White said that “Bruce Lee is the father of mixed martial arts". I think Bruce Lee was ahead of his time, because he saw the limitations of just one discipline in a real fight. With that, he started to incorporate other disciplines into his fight style after envisioning the various scenarios of a real fight. In addition to Wing Chun, he started to learn boxing, wrestling, jiu jitsu, etc. Although he might be truly be the “father of mixed martial arts,” he is definitely a visionary. In “Enter the Dragon,” he submitted a dude via armbar.
