The Bruce Lee argument (revisited)

Postby DeceptaCon » Thu May 17, 2018 12:38 am

Does superior style and discipline negate size and strength adavantage? Well does it? This is the reason we all got into martial arts or starting watching MMA. Bruce Lee made us think it and then Royce Gracie made us believe it, at least in the early days of MMA.

Then came the American wrestlers with their weight cutting methods and professional game plans, always doing whatever it takes to be number one. It worked for a while until superior technique and skill returned in the form of BJ Penn and Fedor. Men of renown, cut from the same cloth as the original true masters.

Then it happened again, fighters once again found ways to take shortcuts with weight cutting, TRT and by manipulating the rules with layNpray/wallNstall tatics never intended for MMA.

Now that I have gotten off of my soapbox and made my futile point I would like to ask Linker nation will their ever be any other fighters that can negate the size descrepancy with their supreme skill and martial art technique like BJ FUCKING PENN and MOTHERFUCKING FEDOR?

Broce Lee had other tools such as the eye poke and kick to the groin that made him dangerous to Everyone at any weight. With rules it is not possible for him to beat good fighters who are much larger.
