Bruce Lee.

Although they both tragically died within months of each other, Bruce was the younger man and also expanded on Wing Chun with Jeet Kune Do so had the obvious edge.

The Ip Man film looks cool, though. I'm not sure how much historical evidence there is behind it, but as a martial arts blockbuster with some hollywood schmultz it looks entertaining.

The IP Man films are excellent, particularly the first one, and Donnie Yen is magnificent in both. I don't think I've seen him in a better role. If you like martial arts flicks you should get these watched Prof Mango B Coconut.

As for who'd win... I'll go for IP.

Will do. I love a bit of bullshido!

I'll go for Bruce.

The Ip Man films are great though. Fans of them might want to check out Jet Li's Fearless which is also superb. Better than that thought are Jet's Once Upon A Time In China movies, the first three are all excellent, and OUATIC 2 has a fantastic duel between Jet and Donnie Yen. If Ip Man was Donnie Yen's defining role, then I think the folk hero Wong Fei-hung in OUATIC was Jet's.

Oh and fans of Donnie Yen should check out Iron Monkey where he plays Wong Fei-hung's dad. 8)

Bruce all day long. He would beat everyone ever, except Mr T and Godzilla in which case it would be a draw.

Good question - I'm going for Ip Man. Bruce is naturally younger and more athletic, but I think Ip Man's technical attack and defence would eventually find a weak spot.

Love the Ip Man films - anyone seen "The Legend Is Born – Ip Man", which is about his youth and training? Almost as good as the two main films starring Donnie Yen; Dennis To plays the character very well too.

That plus IP man's superior mental toughness. He saw off the Japanese army single handed. Well, almost ;)

@Koops I'd like to see Bruce vs Godzilla cross bred with MrT. T-Zilla? Mr Todzilla? Anyway, he'd look like Godzilla but have darker scales, the Mohawk, wear lots of gold and say 'fool' a lot. Even Bruce would be quaking.

Surely the only answer is Chuck Norris?
