After hitting the big screen for two special viewings last month, “I Am Bruce Lee” premieres tonight on Spike TV at 9PM ET/PT. UFC president Dana White, reigning UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones, Gina Carano and Cung Le are among several stars that make cameos in the documentary.

Although the legendary martial artist died nearly 40 years ago at the tender age of 32, his philosophies are as prominent today as they have ever been. In fact, many consider Lee as the Godfather of mixed martial arts because he was the first to preach the necessity of having to study as many different disciplines as possible.

Being constrained in the fixed positions of one technique was far too predictable.

“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water,” Lee famously stated. “If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

For your viewing pleasure, Spike TV will bookend the documentary by broadcasting “Enter the Dragon,” one of Lee’s most popular movies.
