Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the Enter the Dragon 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition gift set on June 11, 2013.

Enter the Dragon was a theatrical hit 40 years ago, when it grossed $25 million domestically — the equivalent of $180 million today. The title has sold more than 450,000 units on DVD and Blu-ray since 2004. In 2004 Enter the Dragon was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.” On July 20, 1973 — a month before the movie premiered — Bruce Lee died in Hong Kong.

Sean Strickland turned in a solid, workman-like performance to extend his UFC win streak to five defeating Uriah Hall by unanimous decision in the main event of UFC on ESPN 28 Saturday in Las Vegas. The pair had been in the cage as training partners before but, when it counted, Strickland had the edge with the harder punches and the superior clinch and ground games.

Strickland dominated much of the middleweight bout with solid jabs and thudding overhand rights. Whenever his opponent did seek to make something happen, Strickland seemed largely unfazed.
