Response to Excellent comment, panttelis!!!
Considering that there are so many variables in determining whether Fighter A is better than Fighter B, it essentially becomes a lesson in futility. For example, it has become fodder for the martial arts masses to compare Bruce Lee to the point fighters of the 60's. The problem is that nobody seems comfortable picking a specific criteria for such comparisons. Examples include...
Would Bruce Lee have been a successful point fighter?
What would be the measure of success in the point fighting world?
Was Bruce Lee a better martial artist than the top point fighters of the 60's?
Was Bruce Lee a better street fighter than the top fighters of that era?
In regards to a no-holds barred fight, should Bruce only be compared to point fighters in or near his weight class?
