Kurt Angle recently spoke to DigitalSpy.co.uk about CM Punk’s upcoming UFC debut in which he expected to fight Mickey Gall at UFC 199 in June.
“I wouldn’t say he is a young 37, I think that he’s a beat-up 37, but he has been able to take the year off – that’s going to help,” Angle said. “I just don’t know how good he is. I know he’s training, but I don’t know how good he is as a fighter. He’s a great pro-wrestler, but fighting is a different story.”
Angle himself tried to make the switch from pro-wrestling to UFC but didn’t pass the intense physical exam that is required by all fighters before they can be signed.
