Bruce Lee died in 1973. Twenty years later, the Ultimate Fighting Championship was founded. And 21 years after that, both are appearing in a video game together, EA Sports UFC.
The team-up is not without some controversy.
Bruce Lee’s brand of fighting, distinct though it is, isn’t what you see in the UFC. Hardcore MMA fans may dispute his background in jiu-jitsu, a core fighting style in modern MMA. Hardcore Bruce Lee fans might point out modern MMA isn’t the kind of street fighting for which Lee was known as a competitor.
