Kurt Angle vs. Randy Couture Update: Mark Cuban Confirms They're Negotiating
Submitted by Michael Bluth on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at 5:33 PM EST

TNA Champion Kurt Angle has said for years that he would like to get involved with Mixed Martial Arts. In a recent radio interview, Angle said he is currently training for a MMA fight with UFC Heavyweight champion Randy "The Natural" Couture. While Angle is known for making some outlandish statements, billionaire Mark Cuban has shed some new light on what would be one of the biggest MMA fights of the year.

If this fight would happen (praying to god it wont) I'd like to see randy actually carry out all 3 rounds just making fun and dominating angle, just cause he can. It would be quite funny I think to get to see 3 rounds of the natural pounding away and dragging kurt all over the cage...

Grappling match I believe could happen. I don't see how any SAC could allow a multitime world champion to fight a guy with zero MMA fights. Though I guess Lesnar vs. Mir wasn't much diffenent. I say Randy by anaconda or gullitione the first time Angle does the only thing he can, shoot for a double leg. No way I would pay for this fight it would have to be free.

Hopefully this is an early April Fools joke.

Angle would be dominated/humiliated. Plain and simple.

Yeah, for sure Angle would have a shot at a strict wrestling submission match but if he thinks he can walk into his first actually MMA bout against Randy Couture....

Wow.... This would be sad to watch....

I don't see Angle making this decision though... he made the smart call in taking some time and training with an IFL team before considering an MMA match.... I'm glad he didn't take the Lesnar road (which was offered to him). But if he were to now jump in the ring with Randy.... Horrible move....

This really shows the class of Randy......

I thought the only thing that mattered was going against the best (Fedor)

I guess that idea is down the drain

Cuban will ruin everthing he get his hands on in MMA (MY OPINION)
