He is easily the most influential martial artist in recent history, which says a lot.
Yeah, he created the best martial arts movies ever, however this doesn't have as much to do with being a martial artist as it does making movies.
Mat Damon made Escrima popular by using it in 'the Bourne...' movies.
He must be the greatest escrima practitioner ever!

I think Lee would beat Chan's ass. I've heard that some of Chan's moves are solely for acting purposes. Don't know, could be wrong on that one.

Fighters:
BJ Penn

Denis Kang

You only took one of my arguments, and you obviously didn't even understand that one. Him making Enter the Dragon is important because it got people interested in martial arts.

How exactly did I not understand it?????
Explain?
Notice the matt damon compaison.

Your only argue that he was really popular, well this doesn't make him a great martial artist, certainly not the greatest.
The cross training thing? Again, a lot of people were doing this, and cross training has been going on since the ancient greeks mixed wresting and boxing.
He supported cross training, again this doesn't really prove that he was the greatest martial artist ever at all.

No i mean Tony Jaa would be the only one with the slightest chance at beating Bruce Lee. Hence why I wrote Lee could beat everyone below him.

The alligator eats the better one . I have to go with Bruce on this one. I've heard Jackie was actually a really good Kung Fu fighter but Bruce had that crazy speed and power thing going for him.
