Creative Director, Brian Hayes, and Art Director Ian Lloyd discuss why they went with Bruce Lee. This information can be viewed here. They have went in detail to bring Bruce Lee to life in UFC. Ian Lloyd had this to say:

This does not just look like Bruce Lee. It is Bruce Lee. The way he carries himself, his fighting stance, his rippling physique, devastating speed, signature strikes and accompanying yells, whoops and shrieks.

We have summoned this pinnacle of human strength, speed and spirit into our world and it has truly been an honor and a career highlight for us to do so.
