He'd be in the lowest weight class probably, maybe second lowest.

Edit: He was not 160, more like 135 lol

Bruce Lee was 5'9... at 160lbs with his body and speed... nobody would stand a chance. I think he was around 140-145lbs.

at his very peak he was 160 so he probably would be featherweight.

The mytg of Bruce Lee lives on. Great actor, mind, choreographer and demonstrations. Absolutely zero confirmed combat experience that isn't heresay. Laughable technique in the vids of him out there throwing punches and kicks. Hilarious neckbeards getting hype over an unimpressive one inch punch that is pure marketting for nikkas that never trained a day in they life. Any top feather like Aldo, Mendez, Frankie, conor, Holloway would RIP him a new asshole

McGregor would destroy him.

Given training, I'm sure he could have become a fighter, and I guess possible champ. There really isn't a whole lot of competition when you are that light in general. 135lbs? They didn't even have that as a weight division for a long time.

Cracks me up when people talk about Bruce. Clearly get caught up in all the hysteria. Cracks me up even more when people discuss Lee vs Tyson or Ali as if it would be a fight.

It is a shame we only get hypotheticals. I wish we could perfect cloning, bring Lee back, let him train a bit, then put him in the UFC.
