I carnt wait to watch chuck lidell fight rampage in ufc who will win?

No. They didn't.

Bruce Lee offered demonstrations at some of the Karate tournaments, but he did not compete. Chuck Norris was a world karate champion who did compete, but according to his own biography and books has never physically used his skills outside a ring or off screen. (In other words, he's never used his skills in a real self-defense situation.)

They did, however, informally train together and exchange ideas on at least one occassion according to Chuck Norris. In an interview Norris gave in one bio-pic on Bruce Lee, Norris said they had an occassion to train in -of all places - the hallway of a hotel. Norris also states that he was one of those who influenced Bruce Lee to use kicks higher than the waist. Bruce Lee coming from a primarily Wing Chun background did not think using high kicks in a real fight was a sound strategy. However, Norris stated he essentially offered to Lee that though practically speaking a fighter might not choose to use kick higher than the waist, the ability to do so offers the fighter greater choices/resources to draw from in a fight.

However, as far as on screen fights, the finale of "Return of the Dragon" between the two is a classic.

Where can I train Muay Thai in the metro detroit area?

There might be some urban legends out there on that, but not much documentation. Norris was a serious competitor in karate tournaments, and Lee was not into sanctioned tournaments let alone karate. As well, Lee was busy with his film career around same time Norris was busy with his tournament career. They definitely knew each other as early as '67, but it's not as if they were rivals of any kind-one had his movies, the other tournaments. So I don't see what kind of context they would have a fight in. It's not as if either one was into dojo busting or bar fights. If someone had some acutal evidence I would be willing to accept that such a fight took place-so far I haven't seen it.

What means by lawan?

I seem to remember reading in one of Chuck Norris's books (maybe "Zen and the Martial Arts") that he and Bruce Lee would train together, but it wasn't clear if that included sparing. I know that Bruce Lee showed Chuck Norris his famous punching bags... Bruce Lee had three punching bags, one filled with feathers, the next with sawdust, and the last with iorn filings. He'd have people punch the first, they'd be tenitive at first, and then the second, where they'd be a little stronger, then when they hit the third they'd be suprised. I also remember Chuck saying that he and Bruce had debated on the effectiveness of high kicks in a real fight.
