UFC Champion Comments On His Toughest Opponent

When the UFC champion Brock Lesnar was asked recently who he  felt would be his toughest challenger in the future, he gave a surprising answer. Many would have anticipated that his answer would be the winner of the Antonio “Minotauro” Rodrigo Noguera vs. Frank Mir bout scheduled for December 27 at UFC 92 . Lesnar in a interview on ESPN radio stated that the man  he feels would give him the hardest time is Olympic Gold Medalist and current TNA wrestler Kurt Angle.Lesnar went on to explain

“Even though Kurt has not fought in a Mixed Martial Arts match yet, I know from experience that he has all the tools to make it big in MMA”.

Lesnar went on to tell a now famous story about himself and Angle engaging in a sparring session in which Angle was allegedly the superior wrestler.

“I have to tip my hat off to Kurt, he is a better wrestler than I am and that would come into play in MMA”.

Lesnar feels that if Kurt would devote himself to working on his striking and submission defense that within 6 months he could be near the top of the food chain and the most dangerous opponent for his UFC belt.
