Oh WOW, Kurt Angle may fight Frank Shamrock?

how do you think Kurt Angle would measure up against frank? Honestly, I think he stands a good fighting chance, kurt is huge, and has a vast olympic wrestling background, and as a despiser of WWE wrestling im kinda glad, cause i was always curious about him, what if Kurt fought this guy in UFC.

If angle got good enough with his hands to just protect himself properly he would beat shamrock. He would take shamrock down at will and he looks like he could put on a decent GnP performance.

If Kurt is gonna' fight Frank, it won't be in the UFC. Dana and Frank don't see eye to eye.

If the fight did happen it would most likely be on Showtime, but I'd rather see Shamrock vs Shamrock.

Angle has trained with couture before and I believe is rather versed in the submission game. If he has had boxing training I think he could very well put up one hell of a fight against frank. If he fights in EliteXC, they might just sell tickets. All prowrestling fans will be all over that plus MMA fans to see just what the dude can do.

My 12 fighter army is as follows:

Dan Henderson
Mac Danzig
Mirko "the man" Filipovic
Anderson Silva
Fedor and Aleks
Mark Hunt
BJ Penn
Q. Rampage Jackson
Karo Parisyan
John Fitch
Frank Shamrock

The UFC really needs to consider signing this guy, just on the simple fact that every prowrestling fan would be glued to the tv and watching his fight.

Even if they put him in against a can they would get mad tv ratings, (just lookin at it from a marketing point)
