What would happen if Bruce Lee stepped inside the Octagon?

Enter the Dragon.

Enter the Dragon.

Bruce Lee is considered by many as the greatest fighter of all time however, Bruce was alive a long while ago, long before the UFC came to dominate the MMA promotions. I offer the question to you, Would Bruce Lee have made it had he started in this generation of Mixed Martial Arts?

Bruce Lee in Black & White

Bruce specialized in Jeet Kune Do, which is a type of Kung Foo abbreviated JKD, is an eclectic and hybrid martial art heavily influenced by the philosophy of the man himself Bruce Lee. The speed of Bruce Lee would be the real threat and at the weight, he died at (141 lb, which would enter him into the Featherweight division) you have to believe he would have dominated the entire division in this day and age. Bruce had the ability to have risen to Lightweight (155lbs) where you still couldn’t deny he may have dominated that division too.

Bruce stood at 1.71 m.

Bruce Lee didn’t fight professionally so he didn’t have a record. The only tournament he entered was an amateur Boxing tournament in Hong Kong at the high school level which he allegedly won defeating the 3-time champion of the event, Gary Elms. Lee had an infamous fight at his Martial Arts studio in Oakland, California against a Kung Fu master named Wong Jack Man. According to his wife Linda the fight lasted 3 minutes.

Several karate champions have had the honour of being tutored by Bruce Lee such as Chuck Norris, Joe Lewis, and Mike Stone. While under the tutelage of Lee, they won every karate championship in the United States between them.
