its not about skills man , any man with the right mindset can possess those skills but it takes hard work and dedication. Focus and unrelenting mindset to strive for perfection.

That Bruce Lee did have more than 3/4 of the title holders out there currently.

I will say one thing, Bruce Lee in MMA wouldve been great to see. He was all about that. To me he was the founder of Mixing Martial Arts when it used to be considered unorthodox.

He wasn't just an actor.

"In the tournament consisted of twelve schools the three time champion British boxer Gary Elms was defeated by Lee by way of knockout in the third round in the 1958 Hong Kong Inter-School amateur Boxing Championships by using Wing Chun traps and high/low-level straight punches. Hawkings Cheung, his fellow Wing Chun street fighter, witnessed the event.[1][2][3]"

"Before facing Elms in the finals, Lee defeated Shen Yuen, Lieh Lo, and Yang Huang, all by way of knock out in the first round"

from wikipedia

and he also pretty much invented mixed martial arts as we know it as previous people has said.

Bruce Lee could fight and he had experience in normal boxing. I think he could have become an elite boxer for shure, how great he would have become is hard to say but an elite boxer as a contender or a world champion yes.
