How would Kurt Angle have fared in the UFC in his prime?

Jeff Jarrett wishes we could have found out.

The WWE Hall Of Fame legend recently spoke about how bad he wanted to see the Olympic gold medalist compete inside the Octagon when he was younger and healthy.

Featured below is an excerpt from his "My World" podcast where Double J sounds off on this topic with his thoughts.

"Kurt doing MMA, I was very attracted to that concept and idea. A cross over, I thought it would’ve been a win-win-win. I thought it would’ve been a win for Kurt even if he got beat, I think it would’ve been a win for Olympic Gold Medalists. I think Dana would’ve with their promotional machine made a lot of money. I think it would’ve given our top talent even more notoriety."
