How Would Kurt Angle Fair in MMA?


Kurt Angle is back to being a regular fixture on WWE programming as the General Manager of Monday Night Raw, but that doesn’t mean he’ll be back in the ring.

Kurt Angle revealed during a Talk is Jericho that he is suffering from some lasting nerve damage due to his lingering injuries and that he doesn’t have nearly the upper body strength he used to.

Angle shared with Chris Jericho that he can now only bench press 185 pounds which is a fraction of what he could normally lift. It is also a minimal amount of weight for someone his size.

Kurt Angle also explained that he actually considered an MMA run, but at this point in his career he decided against it.

Angle said he wouldn’t have been able to adequately defend himself given his current health situation.

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.
