When it comes to martial arts, no one should doubt the ability of Bruce Lee in any situation. He may be smaller, but that wouldn't stop him from winning the fight.

Look at Royce Gracie. At around 175 pounds, he took down a 250-pound Remco Pardoel at UFC 2. Facing a similar disadvantage against Jon Jones, Lee has enough to skill to win. With his combinations of styles he learned, Lee would run circles around his opponents, including Jones.

Lee takes this fight hands down.

Bruce Lee is a legend, but there are limits to even what he can do. Jones may fight at 205 pounds, but he walks around a muscular 230—about 100 pounds more than Lee. That's too much ground for the movie star to make up.

Bones has a seemingly limitless bag to reach into in any given fight. Not only can he knock you senseless with his Muay Thai strikes, he can take you on the ground and pummel you into submission. Lee is great at defeating giants in movies, but the Octagon is real life.

Jones would overwhelm Lee.
