Four decades after Enter the Dragon was released, Warner Bros. has created a special edition of the Bruce Lee classic that has been remastered and will include plenty of bonus features.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the Enter the Dragon 40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition gift set on June 11, 2013. The best-known of Bruce Lee’s films has been remastered and will be packaged with bonus materials, including a featurette titled No Way as Way and commentary from a variety of luminaries. The set also will include collectible art cards and an embroidered patch. 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. He was 32.

The UFC returned to American network television for the first time in more than two years Saturday on ABC while former featherweight champion Max Holloway returned to his winning ways following two straight losses, earning a unanimous decision over Calvin Kattar in Abu Dhabi. Holloway showed he still has plenty left as a fighter dominating Kattar from the opening bell of the main event with a mix of punches and low kicks.

It appeared as if the former champion might stop his opponent in the fourth round landing a series of vicious body blows followed by hard elbows to the head as a bloodied Kattar sagged against the fence. But Kattar somehow survived managing to keep himself upright through the fifth stanza as well, only to lose a lopsided decision. After dropping his title to Alexander Volkanovski and then losing a controversial rematch, Holloway may have put himself in position for one more crack at the championship following Saturday's impressive performance.

These three simple ways will make you more flexible instantly!

Fighters need to have an optimal amount of flexibility to kick, punch, takedown their opponent and even to escape submission holds. Your body has to be able to move through ranges of motion effectively, and that requires your muscles to stretch and contract functionally. In order to create flexibility, you have to wrap your mind around that it is more than just stretching a muscle.
