you peeps need to recongize this.

1st. There has been wide speculation that Kurt is involved with the most recent online steriod ring, so first the man needs to pass that little test.

2nd and however, Kurt Angle is a freak. The man would prolly be 205lber. He walks at like 225 right now so its no stretch to think he would go to that class with the most exciting peeps anyway. Also take into account what was already said. Angle has a great threshold for pain after all the man did win a gold medal with a broken freakin neck ;p.

3rd Wrestlers dominate MMA, when it comes to wrestling, Kurt is the best he is sickly strong, and very fit, Kurt is someone who even without good BJJ skills can come right in, and win with simply picking someone up, putting them on the mat, and either sitting there to run out the clock or doing some ground and pound.

Kurt has the tools to at least be descent while learning. Kinda like Kos

IMHO I think Angle looks like he is on the verge of a full blown heart failure. He looks like a tomato when he wrestles! He would get tortured in MMA and be in a whole new world of hurt and doctors bills. I can't image Angle taking a punch. I just can't!

I can't really hate on kurt cuz He's a really nice guy, but I think the man has taken a few to many chair shots. He IS a great wrestler and they usually do good in pride but kurt is almost 40, has a bad neck, and I seriously question his health. The guy looks sick compared to how he used to look. But if the man thinks he'd be the best in mma then Give him a fight agianst the best.

Debut both on the same night. Kurt Angle vs. Fedor Emelianko!

Angle is a much better wrestler then Couture. Couture's striking is not the best, but it's enough to make it by. Angle has been talking about MMA for a while, if he's actually been training for it as well all this time, some of you guys might be in for a rude awakening, and show the Olympian some respect. What fraction of the human population has the dedication to train all day every day, to not only make it to the Olympics but win a gold medal? And how many have done that with a broken neck? Angle is an incredible athlete that is truly unique.

His neck wasn't broken, it was just in severe danger of re-breaking.

Kurt's a great athlete who claims he would own Brock backstage when they would grapple, which personally I doubt. I think Brock Lesnar is a freak, and much stronger then Kurt, however Kurt is much more accomplished. As long as he knew submission and GNP he would do better then good, the guy is tough as nails and has an uncanny threshold for pain, not to mention crazy intensity. Don't forget the Ankle Lock!!! lol



Their was a radio talk show I used to listen to called the wrestling guys when I was in school.One thing that was talked about one night was an apparent "real" wrestling match between Angle and Broc Lesner back stage at an event.From what the talk show host said,Angle apparently put Lesner to shame.

I'm not sure how true this was.But they were pretty accurate on quiet a few of these backstage stories they spoke of.That being said,I couldn't count Kurt completley out.That was also probably 8 years ago too,so a lot can change between then and now.
