Kurt Angle on Conor McGregor’s Controversial Comments, Challenges Conor To Step In To Wrestling Ring

Sports Illustrated recently spoke with Kurt Angle for SI’s Wrestling Week In Review. Some excerpts from it are available below:

On Conor McGregor’s comments about WWE Superstars being, “Messed up p*ssies”:

“Conor is either the most loved or the most hated fighter in UFC, and that’s a credit to him,” said Angle. “But to cross over into another career, into pro wrestling–something you don’t even know–and call WWE wrestlers “p——”? That’s offensive. Don’t talk about someone you don’t know.”

On what would happen if Kurt stepped in to an octagon with Conor McGregor:

“I’d take him down, then ground and pound him until I knocked him out,” said Angle. “Conor is a polished fighter, but with my size, I would overpower him. It wouldn’t be that difficult for me.”

On Conor McGregor’s lack of respect for pro wrestling:

“I’d like to challenge Conor,” said Angle. “Take five bumps with me in the ring. Just five bumps. When I did that for the first time, I took three and said, ‘F— this, I’m quitting.’ I quit for a couple days and my manager talked me into going back. I know how Dana White and Conor continue to bash the business, but I challenge either of them to get in the ring with me and take five bumps. Once they do, they’ll realize how tough it is–and that’s not even a fraction of what it takes to be a pro wrestler.”
