2. Hall of Mirrors – Enter The Dragon
The last fight of Enter The Dragon sees Lee come up against Mr Han. The fight includes the scene where Bruce Lee picks up his trademark scratches.
1. Bruce vs Chuck – Way of the Dragon
Was there ever any doubt this would be number one? The two come up against each other in the Colosseum in Rome and while Lee emerges the victor he shows the respect his opponent has earned covering his body.
