Who Would Win in a Fight Between Bruce Lee and Mike Tyson?

Alright Planeteers, I've been arguing on message boards with people about this off and on for a couple years now and I want to get CP's input on it. The question is this: Who would win in a fight between Bruce Lee and Mike Tyson in his prime? Let's hear it!

Ok, I haven't read one post in this thread.. but if you honestly think 135 lb Bruce Lee would do ANY damage on Mike Tyson (who btw I think is a subpar SHIT boxer) you are delusional. You aren't just delusional, you are a ****ing moron. Jesus kids, learn some ****ing physics. Bruce Lee was an impressive showman, buts lets all try to live in the REAL WORLD here.

Tyson was crap. He was the best of his day.. which isn't saying a lot. Holmes was every bit as strong and fast and actually had something Tyson never could have... skill. Heavyweight boxing was an absolute joke by the time Tyson was a "champion."

But that said, yes, you are right, tyson would have killed Lee in a fight. Not the figurative "killed" but in reality KILLED him. Anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional.

Seriously guys... Bruce Lee was an actor since childhood. He was raised on a soundstage, not a dojo.

I assume one guy would win because one guy was a professional fighter while the other was an actor. There is nothing other than movies and anecdotes for anyone to think a 165 pound actor could beat up a former Heavyweight boxing champion. It's hilariously preposterous. "Lee would win... he trained Kareem and beat up Chuck Norris in a movie once!"
His fighting and teaching led to acting, not the other way around. Same with chuck Norris.

Yes, I honestly believe lee could do a lot of damage to Tyson. Joints are joints, bones are bones, you can't strenghten muscle around your nose, can't add muscle mass to hide nerve bundles.

A straight ruled boxing match would lead to Tyson's strengths . A no rules street fight would led to Lee's. Any doubt about that just shows you're trolling or absurdly ignorant about the topic.

Street Fight Lee would go to the knees and put Mike down unless Mike landed one on him first...

Well, this is an opinion thing that neither of us can prove so I don't feel like drawing it out for no reason.

My reasoning is that Bruce used leg strikes while Tyson didn't- and not only did he not use them himself, he was never trained to effectively defend against them.

A leg strike, which is quicker than a jab when coming from a guy like Lee, has far more reach than a standard punch and doesn't leave you as vulnerable. My thinking is that Lee could get in a couple leg kicks to the thigh/knee region before Tyson could get in close enough to even get a swing off. If Lee is able to land those tactically, it could really change the fight. Good luck trying to throw a powerful punch with a partially torn knee ligament or deep thigh bruise..

Amen, tell 'em coffey.

Just like why are elbow strikes to the back of the head or knees to the face of a downed opponent illegal in MMA? Because they will KILL you... and those are just two of the many things Lee would be capable of in a no rules fight.

Does anyone know if Tyson trained in any other combat sports besides boxing? I've heard he had and have heard that he hadn't. Heard he had a wrestling background, but have also been told that I was ridiculous for thinking that. Not that it matters anyways, Tyson would still BrutaLeeze him.

Not THAT relevant to the topic, but I think this video is awesome...especially if you are able to dig up the pre-fight press conference where Sylvia and Mercer bickered with each other and Sylvia claimed that he would only "box" Ray in their fight...That's why Ray looked all annoyed when Sylvia immediately started off the fight by attempting a kick. Hilarious how this one ended up... keep in mind, while Sylvia was kind of slouchy for a UFC Hwt. champ, he still was a UFC Hwt. champ....slouchy or not slouchy...Can't take that away from him.

He was a boxer and nothing else.

You're just too sold on might over right, Rico... not sure its coming from you, but this talk of Lee being some pansy child actor/Hollywood construct simply isn't based in reality.

Lee was a wholly legit master of kung-fu and many other fighting styles, he had an entire encyclopedia of knowledge to draw from and Tyson was a standup boxer.. if he were allowed to use maiming strikes Iron Mike wouldn't have a chance, he'd smash that leading boxers leg like a twig if nothing else.

Bullshit.

Tyson has knocked out 44 professional fighters with padded gloves on. If he hit those 44 guy without gloves on, half of them might have died or got put in a coma. It's not like the guy was slow, either. He was fast as shit and could throw a power hook and uppercut faster than anyone I've ever seen.

If he caught Lee with a bare knuckle shot, Lee might not be able to get up.

His punching power was tested and was given the equivalent of getting hit by a 16pound sledgehammer at 36 miles an hour.

That's enough to kill a 140 pound man or break whatever bone it hits.

Bruce Lee would literally kill Tyson in less than a minute. It wouldn't be much of a fight.
