TNA star Kurt Angle spoke to MMAWeekly.com this week to discuss his training for the United States Olympic Wrestling team and hype his new MMA movie, “Warrior.” During the interview, Angle stated that he came very close to signing with the UFC – but UFC President Dana White has a different view on how things went down.

Kurt Angle told MMAWeekly:

“I actually contacted Dana White again after the movie. I flew out to meet him once and got a great offer. I contacted him again, I was thinking about dropping out of Impact wrestling, and there were some personal problems with my marriage and I just wanted to get away. I contacted Dana White, I flew out, and he had me take the UFC physical. I passed it, thank God, and he gave me the offer. The terms weren’t good, I mean not for me, and the terms I gave him weren’t good for him. He wanted me ready in four-and-a-half weeks; I wanted three to six months. So I respect Dana White and I love him to death, very good friend. I knew I was capable of winning in four-and-a-half weeks, but I wanted to be at my best.”

Dana White was asked on Twitter about Angle’s claim, to which he responded: “love kurt but not true.”

    This is why it’s hard to take TNA seriously. Their top star lies a lot. I have no respect to liars. Maybe he was drunk during this conversation.

    Kurt Angle needs to retire and just go away.

  • Nicholas G

    Kurt Angle to me has lost his mind. First he talks about going to the next year Olympic now it UFC in which I feel Kurt would get destroy. I mean right now Dana White is the one I will take his word to the bank. While Kurt Angle don’t know what he is on but he needs a lot of help. Man what kind of koo aid are they drinking in WCW I mean ECW no TNA.

    I thought that was just my Bell internet screwing up like usual. When I could get on I noticed it wanted me to do a survey to see the premium content. So either the owner was trying something or was hacked temporarily.
