    I can't believe that he waited this long. Angle turns 40 this year. There is no way that he is going to be anything close to what he could have been, had he done this sooner. I think that it's a bad move. Angle in his prime, was extremely fast and explosive. He still is now, but not nearly the same... and he doesn't have enough time to learn all of the aspects of the game that he will need to be truely successful.

    Also... this has been said so many times. I won't beilieve it until he is actually in training for a scheduled fight.

    His normally around the 220-230 mark. His DEFINITLY a heavy.Theres no way he could make 205 im pretty sure of that.

    yes, DEFINATLY a heavy, making 205 would be almost impossible how Forrest Griffin makes 205 when he walks around at 235-240 is a mystery:roll:

    :lol: Your a clown:lol::lol: Angle won gold in the Olympics in the 100KG category. Thats 198-220lbs. That was over a decade ago. His also near on 40 years of age. But of course he can definitly make 205 because Griffin can make 205:lol: Got any other jokes to tell me stoopid?

    On another interview, he said that he would fight if people just give him his cash up front. Just give the guy his damn cash, and you'd have another great draw to the sport of MMA. All I can say is that it'll really be exciting to see him in a cage for the first time, and I hope he shuts everyone up because the man's a tremendous athlete.
