bruce was a natural, so he could def hang in there if he learned bjj and added some boxing to his game. but as stand his 1960s skillset wouldnt work to well in mma
he would kick butt. there is no difference between how tough fighters are now and then back in Bruces' days.the difference is how much attention the media gives these fighters now.
He said in an old interview on youtube that anybody can be beaten. There is always somebody out there. Hollywood created his image of invincibility just like cowboy sharp shooters. He would be like anybody else, he would win some and lose some.
When Bruce Lee created Jeet Kune Do, I used styles that he had access to. One has to remember his philosophy on the martial arts in which there is no ultimate style. He used Tai Chi Chuan and Wing Chun as the base; then, he added moves and techniques from: Tae Kwon Do, Boxing, Epee Fencing, etc.
Bruce Lee wanted to add Muay Thai moves into JKD; but, the style wasn't available to him. But, he was able to add the hardcore mindset of the Muay Thai fighter. In today's MMA bouts, he'd probably lose matches; but, he'd have access to so many different styles at the same time. MMA would actually motivate him to improve his JKD.
