Chuck Norris
Game of Death

March, 2011,

When martial arts legend and political juggernaut Chuck Norris shares his thoughts on Bruce Lee, you listen. On his WorldNetDaily column, Chuck Norris discusses Bruce Lee’s charm, adaptability, and whether the jeet kune do master would have stood a chance against the karate champ.

Bruce Lee’s Strengths

Chuck Norris: "The truth is Lee was a formidable opponent with a chiseled physique and technique. I totally enjoyed sparring and just spending time with him. He was as charismatic and friendly in the ring and at home as he was on film. His confidence and wit were dazzling, and sometimes even debilitating to others. […] Lee was lightning fast, very agile and incredibly strong for his size."

Bruce Lee’s Adaptability

Chuck Norris: "Bruce Lee learned from everybody. He had a very open mind. He never believed in only one martial arts style or that one was superior. He believed that everything had strengths and weaknesses and that we should find the strengths in each method."

Bruce Lee’s Chances Against Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris: "Would I have beaten Bruce Lee in a real competition, or not? You'll forgive me for answering with another Bruceism: ‘Showing off is the fool's idea of glory.' " While their dream fight never became a reality in the ring, the epic battle can be seen in the 1972 Bruce Lee film The Way of the Dragon (also released as Return of the Dragon).

I remember that the two men fought in a sanctioned match. Full contact! As I remember Bruce Lee won. Watched Really GRAINY FOOTAGE ON T.V.. WAS ON THE INTER-NET 10 YRS BACK. THE FIGHT WAS IN SEATTLE, I THINK. Locaton is not as IMPORTANT AS THE FACTS THAT IT WAS A SANCTIONED MATCH. AND NOW IT NEVER HAPPENED. MR. NORRIS IS A BAD-ASS. But MR. LEE HANDED CHUCK HIS ASS. AND NOW IT NEVER HAPPENED?????? BULLSHIT.

According to a internet, Chuck Norris is unstoppable and terrifying. So who would win in a quarrel between Lee and Norris? Well, Chuck Norris was a crony of Bruce Lee and talks about him in many interviews where that same doubt mostly arises. Usually, Norris is rather evasive, branch philosophical and refusing to presumably answer a question. In a past, he’s responded with such gems as, “Would we have beaten Bruce Lee in a genuine competition, or not? You’ll pardon me for responding with another Bruceism: ‘Showing off is a fool’s suspicion of glory.’ ”

Chuck Norris is better

I like facts and not just conjecture. Chuck Norris was a professional fighter long before he was an actor. He had an estimated tournament record of: 183-10-2. He won at least 30 tournaments. He held the World Professional Middleweight Karate Champion for six years. Bruce Lee has nothing similar to compare or contrast this with. If Bruce would have competed in the various Karate circuits, competitions and tournaments during the 60s. We might have something better to compare. We simply don’t. Just movies and stories told by admires and fans.

Agree with Damon. Fact is Lee and Norris while great actors are even better fighters and martial artists. Probably best of our time. Who would win is speculative and saying 'yrs ago i saw a grainy footage in the internet' as proof is ridiculous. Real question is either one against a mma champ of our time. Who wins...mma rules
