You seem to misunderstand Bruce Lee if you think he could have beaten top MMA stars. And MANY people think that.
He was a great Martial Artist, kind of like Ali was a great boxer, but neither man was a serious competitive fighter. there is a difference between those words.
Neither Bruce, nor Ali had conditioned shins, hence a Muay thai champion and k1 champ like Buakau would render both Ali and Bruce unable to stand within seconds, with low kicks.
Neither man had a sprawl, nor did they have a great submission skill, that takes a lifetime to be good at. Hence any bjj black belt would submit them after a lighting fast takedown in several seconds.
Finally, Bruce has said in Art of Jeet Kune Do, that his moves are NOT to be studied because they'll be outdated shortly, now we are 40 years outdated over here...
