    Default Brock Lesnar: Kurt Angle & Bobby Lashley Won't Come To UFC (The Wrestling News Page)

    A note to all of the writers that refer to Brock as a PRO wrestler:

    "I am here to represent amateur wrestling and not professional wrestling. Are there other pro wrestlers who can come into UFC like me? Absolutely not. They just don’t have the background that I do. Even top UFC fighters wish they had more wrestling experience in their background."

    Although this article suggests it I don't see Lesnar ever specifically saying Angle couldn't make the transition.

    Oh Sheet, Is Brock saying that his amateur wrestling is superior to Angle??? you gotta be f'n kidding me.

    Looks like a blanket statement to me and not necessarily speaking about Angle. Of course Angle has the pedigree that Lesnar has, and beyond. I'd still favor Brock in an MMA match over Angle, however.
    Lets go Brent!

    I would hope its a blanket statement because Im sure that all Angle has to do is show up at the pre or post 91 press conference wearing his gold medal and ask Brock to clarify.

    I agree that Brock would beat Angle in MMA though.

    Yeah, from the article it would seem the author is trying to call out certain people who Lesnar never actually mentioned.

    Angle is 40- a pretty late start for an MMA guy. Not that he *couldn't* do it, but it would seem odd to start a career when odds are it could only last 3-5 years.

    And lets not forget that Angle has sustained numerous injuries that would make it very difficult to even get cleared for a fight. The wear and trear on him in training alone would be too much IMO.
    Lets go Brent!
