awh..don't be fouled by all the proganda and advertising around bruce lee. he was very good indeed...but it's hard to say who'se better than who. jet is chinese champion at 5 different styles....you really can;t know.
in my opinion, the ultimate form of combat (which might not even BE considered offensive action at that state, for all i know) was reached by the inventor of aikido, namely morihei ueshiba. he was a true master of the martial arts.
some guy with extensive military combat training is probably the best fighter. these guys learn to fight as though their lives depend on it. I could see some russian soldier ( these people train heavily in death strikes) taking out bas rutten with a crushing blow to his wind pipe, or caving in his temple.

Bruce Lee is the best all-round fighter. He could learn a move that some expert has taken 10 years to perfect, in one go then do it again and be better than the expert. He was a genius, but died so young, and took all that knowledge with. I believe any top fighter, be it Boxing or Martial Arts, would say Bruce Lee would beat them.
there was a guy in the ufc that was said to have that type of background..got his ass completely handed to him..bruce was great but so was frank shamrock...noone could touch frank in his prime, i'd like to see him and bruce sqaure off
Martial Arts is a Self Defence, it was never intended to be a sport. In a real life situation, Bruce Lee would probably do a lightening strike to the throat, nothing fancy but, gets the job done. I also believe the best fighters are ones we dont really know about, not these egotistical maniacs trying to prove how good they are.
lol. wax on wax off young daniel-son you'll win one....now for your first test...grab this stone from my palm...ok try again...ok again..(1,000 tries later)...ok put this 2 pound weight on your wrist. now try....(1,000 tries later and you still don't get it) ok (takes that weight off your wrist) now triy..on three...two..one...*whoosh*. You got it!
In other words it takes practice in order to do anything well.
