    And why would he?.... He makes more money making movies than being a fighter.

    I don't blame the guy for a second, I'm just conditioned against him thanks to the remarkably romanticized version of his life people have already begun to believe en masse.

    I think Bruce Lee would have been a great professional fighter. Yes, there are way too many exaggerations but his physical abilities were incredible. Whether it was for the money or for the increased audience for his teachings, I don't blame Lee for taking the jobs he did but man, did boxing miss out on this guy.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    I never said I thought he should be fighting heavyweight.

    I think he would have been lightweight or junior-welterweight.

    I've heard of his amateur boxing career and that he was good but I also know thats disputed. However, he is no longer with us and it is useless to speculate too much about what ifs.

    I just believe Bruce Lee was physically gifted enough to compete.

    I highlighted the word chunner for a reason.. this being the biggest reason he would not be making money in mma
