During an apperance on the MMAWeekly Radio today, Kurt Angle discussed his role in the upcoming film “Warrior” and claimed he almost joined the UFC just a few months ago.

“I contacted (Dana White) again, I was thinking about dropping out of Impact Wrestling, and there were some personal problems with my marriage and I just wanted to get away and I contacted Dana White, I flew out, and he had me take the UFC physical. I passed it thank God, and he gave me the offer.”

UFC President Dana White responded to the claim on Twitter stating, “Love Kurt, but not true.”
