bruce or mas oyama? Bruce had some incredible speed and power, but oyama was strong like an ox and tough as hell.

Oyama on the basis that his real ife fighting skill is well documented, and not as prone to fanciful 3rd party anecdote.

I prefer Bruce though on the basis that he made some great movies and didnt torture Bulls.

Interesting match up. I'd like to see Bruce win but I think Oyama would come out on top. I know a lot of the stories on him are exaggerated a bit but I think Oyama had more real fight experience.

That's only 'cuz Lee had an alergic reaction to a headache pill someone gave him (don't know if it was diliberate or not) but the severe reaction caused his brain to swell and he died. He'd probably still be living if that hadn't happened. What was weird about Oyama's death is that he died of lung cancer and I don't even think he smoked a day in his life.

They both won. People still talk about them, and they both had significant impact in MA.
