Don’t Believe the Hype: Kurt Angle Will Never Do MMA

218 0

Every now and then you need to call BS on someone. Today it’s Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle.

Angle floated the idea recently that he would step inside the cage to fight — wait for it — Kimbo Slice, Ken Shamrock, Dan Severn or Royce Gracie. Check out the painful interview here.

Bellator, don’t even think about it. You might as well book Kanye West vs. Ray J, Kim Kardashian vs. Amber Rose or King Mo vs. Eddie Murphy with Arsenio Hall as special guest referee. It would be about as credible.

Let’s get this clear: KURT ANGLE WILL NEVER STEP INSIDE THE CAGE. He’s been talking about doing it for a decade, and it’s never going to happen. Angle is a great athlete and one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time, but he’s 47 years old and would probably have trouble tapping out Warwick Davis. Angle is a tremendous athlete, but he has had a career full of injuries, including ones involving his neck. He does not belong in the cage.

Anyone who recalls the first season of the WWE’s Tough Enough (the show the UFC ripped off and called “The Ultimate Fighter”) knows that Angle got his backside handed to him by one Daniel Puder. Tough Enough was a pseudo-reality show and Angle challenged guys to wrestle him for real. Puder, who had MMA experience, got angle in a kimura and literally could have snapped his arm all the way back to the Gold Medal podium in Atlanta.

The pin wouldn’t happen in the cage, Kurt.
