Take it for what you will, Kurt Angle opening his mouth, but that’s the word according to Rajah.com, citing an interview with Angle on KHTK 1140 in Sacramento.

Angle states he’s doing different things from tv shows to movies to an upcoming “MMA fight” with Randy Couture:

These guys need to just meet up in one of Couture's gyms...

Throwdown a quick wrestling match get this BS over with so Couture can work on getting a real fight set up and Angle can go back to practicing for his impending MMA debut, whenever it may be....

The UFC should sign Angle.... have him fight lesner.... the winner stays in the UFC, the loser goes back to the WWF.... thats right! The WWF.... retro-style.... not one of these new "cool" promotions....

My two cent....

Kurt is almost 40 if he is going to make an MMA debut he better do it soon he has had alot of injuries between his olympic wrestling career and his WWE career so I don't think he could stay active in MMA for more than a few yrs tops he is better off sticking to what he does best and thats hitting people with chairs and doing moonsault's off of cages

But Angle probably doesn't know any better and thinks it is an MMA match for the Heavyweight title.

Sorry no respect for Pro wrestlers until they prove themselves in MMA.
