Everyone has imitated Bruce Lee in the confine of their living room and accidentally smacked a friend in the nose while spinning imaginary nunchucks.

I’m sure you’ve developed your own hypothesis as to who would prevail in a theoretical match-up between Bruce Lee vs. [insert fighter name here].

Check out this MMA bout that went down at Yonkers Elite Cage Fighting this past weekend when a Jeet Kune Do fighter gets slammed into the 5th dimension by MMA fighter Greg Styles.
