I reckon kurt Angle would be in the hall of fame easy if he went to the UFC in his prime. His wrestling credentials are outstanding. Now, I remember him saying he would love to fight at HW in the UFC but he really isn't that tall. Off wrestling and toughness alone I still think he'd have a great record on smaller shows and maybe win a few at the higher levels.

As for the main article, this is one of the fights that as a MMA fan makes me think it's just bad promo for the sport and bills this as a "WWE starts cagefight to settle dispute" sorta thing. Bad publicity for the sport in general i'd say BUT the old WWE fan of me says I'd love to see it//


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

Well as of yet I haven't seen the WWE do a MMA match in their shows. It's not like Japan where that happened alot in New Japan. Of course that happened alot with Antonio Inoki.

I'd rather see Kimbo/Houston II, then Kimbo/Houston III, then see two 50 year old fake-fighters go at it. Hell i'd even rather go watch Quarry/Starnes in it's entirety

Real MMA or Fake MMA? They had a couple of Lions Den and Dungeons matches in the late 90's when Dan Severn and Ken Shamrock were in the WWE



And it looks like Anthony Pettis got the idea for the Pettis kick from watching that match and seeing the Shamrock elbow at the end Those matches were all fake though. But I heard that Shane Mcmahon had tried to get his father to invest in some MMA company or start their own a few years back. Vince didn't want to though so it never happened.

This looks more like Japanese prowrestling compared to fake MMA. Just to answer your question the MMA promotion that the WWE considered in investing in was Pride towards the end. But nothing materialized and Zuffa bought out Pride.

It's honestly pathetic, most of them take steroids, and looking at Nash.. yes, guy definitely took roids a few times in his life.

Just because he's like 7 feet tall doesn't mean his arms need to be that ****in big.
You sir are sounding ignorant. For the few fights Lesnar had look at what he accomplished even though he had poor stand up. And you obviously not aware of the WWE Wellness programme is that right?

Always loving - Brock Lesnar, Frank Mir, Roy Nelson, Lyoto Machida, Dan Henderson, Alexander Gustafsson, Demian Maia, Michael Bisping, Rousimar Palhares, Nick Diaz, Matt Hughes, Urijah Faber.
