Interviews - Bruce Lee -
Lots of people are forgetting, that Bruce Lee was the greatest martial artist who did not enter tournaments (except boxing championship in 1958 but when he was in high school and other Full Contact Matches such as 1962 Seattle, etc)because he did not believe in the rules or styles, it also limits one's fighting ability....
and most mma guys or fans should know, in real combat or in real fights are much more dangerous than in cage or on the ring,
for example, poking someone eyes, elbowing somebody's eyes and kicking them down there or even biting them...
there are no rules in real fights, mma is a sport, some might say that biting or poking might be dirty, but what is dirty fighting?
if fight rules in mma changed that punch is illegal move, than that makes it dirty.
bruce lee was extremely fast learner and a genius, if he came back from the dead at age 32, he would kept getting better and better and learning and adopting different styles, his physical feats were beyond and martial artist and fighters even today cannot be achieved
So was he real fighter? Yes.
Lots of people forgot he actually fought in real life and challenged many, in fact, he became a legend because one of his fight in the beginning led him to realize that strength, speed, power are all important aspects.
The fact is he created the system, Jeet Kune Do, is actually for real fighting.
Lots of people are forgetting as well, that MMA is a sport. Most of the guys never fought in actual combat, the rules and styles stricts one's ability to full potential. Bruce Lee didn't believe in styles or rules in any competitions of combat like UFC. For more description of why, go to youtube and check this video out....
