Kurt Angle on past addictions:

“I was going to lose my family, I was going to lose my beautiful wife, Giovanna and my kid. I knew after my fourth DUI in five years. Once you’re addicted to a drug and you pull back on that drug, you start going to other drugs and what I did was I started taking anxiety medication so I wouldn’t take as many painkillers. Then, I started taking both of those and I started drinking alcohol and I was mixing all three. I got very careless, I was in the lowest point of my life in 2010, 11, 12, 13. I had four DUI’s in five years. I called my wife from jail and she said listen, you have to go to rehab, if you don’t go to rehab, I have to leave you, I love you but I can’t stay with you. That was my lowest point, calling my beautiful wife that I just married a year prior and her telling me she’s going to leave me if I don’t go to rehab.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
