    When I was in high school, i was a huge fan of Bruce Lee and read a few of the books written by him as well as the movies of course and though the idea could be argued to have been present, him being promoted to have any relation to MMAs development like Dana seemingly wants to promote it as feels like bullshit.

    Also, nor Shooto of UFC wasnt first of anything. More than 2000 years ago, Greeks were already doing this.

    Bruce Lee invented MMA in 1972. Deal with it.

    bruce lee made martial arts popular and influenced people to get into it which then evolve into modern mma

    also since greeks had such a head start why are they so trash at mma or combat sports in general

    Bruce Lee was a 145 pound actor who would get fucked up by Cyborg.

    MMA is just realistic h2h fighting, that shit has been around since the stone age, as Dana himself would tell you. When ranged weaponry and gunpowder became the de facto standard in warfare they rendered h2h fighting obsolete, and the art itself was lost over hundreds of years. MMA wasn't invented in the 20th century so much as it was "rediscovered".

    Yawn. Everyone knows Bruce was a bullshiter otherwise he would have a real record instead of fourth hand accounts.

    Dude was an actor, used certain gloves to look cool and was a philosophy major so he had a few neat ideas.

    He’s dead, let the man rest.
