Rare video footage of Bruce Lee actually fighting (kind of) has gone viral after the uploader purports that it’s the only recording of Bruce Lee in a real MMA fight. First he fights Ted Wong, one of his top Jeet Kune Do students. They are allegedly wearing protective gear because they weren’t allowed to fight without them as per California state regulations.
The second fighter is Taky Kimura, and the matches took place in 1964, at the Long Beach International Karate Championships.
