I must win every thread in GBS. I don't care how much banal semantic quibbling and shitty posts it takes.

I recently saw a poll questioning who would win in a fight. Famed actor, Bruce Lee, and accomplished fighter, Muhammad Ali. Assume a no holds barred fight to the death.

Personally, I think Ali would destroy Lee as he had a ton of weight on him, and a 6 inch reach advantage. For some reason, tons of people love to deify Lee, and actually believe that he could "punch faster than cameras can capture". I mean, who the gently caress believes that sort of poo poo? Or that the one inch punch will send an 80 pound bag flying across the room. Bruce Lee was not involved in competitive fighting in any real capacity. Ali had George Foreman and Joe Frazier beating the gently caress out of him and took it like a man.

Who do you think would win, and why?

First off great work loving up a perfectly good poll.

Secondly; Muhammad would probably win if they were boxing. Bruce lee would probably win in a knife fight.

Also, no weapons.

Mike Tyson would be the poo poo out of both of them. Especially since he's the only one alive right now too.

Sorry guys, I'm just a donut.


Bruce would avoid every strike and collapse Ali's windpipe with a single blow. Ali would be incapacitated and possibly die without immediate medical attention.

Going with Ali because Lee just pretend-fought actors in movies.

Out here, everything hurts

Bruce Lee's philosophy in a real fight was to do everything possible to kick, knee, rip, do whatever it takes to destroy the groin. If the opponent is guarding the groin, gouge the eyes until the groin is exposed. He was probably fast enough to dodge a few punches.

I figure Ali still wins tho
