Frustrated with his direction in TNA, Kurt Angle made the shocking announcement to resign from the company and terminate his contract. Having had broken bonds with Vince McMahon, it was quite evident a move back to the WWE would be out of the equation, and Angle questioned his future.
A month after his resignation, Angle made it clear of his intent to participate in the UFC. His first opponent couldn't be a better pick, as he was scheduled to face none other than a former rival in the wrestling business, Brock Lesnar, in an highly promoted exhibition bout. The bout attracted the highest audience in the history of UFC, recording a staggering audience of over 100,000 fans in the arena, as fans from the wrestling world joined in to watch. Olympic champion Kurt Angle won his debut match after a grueling match via a 6th round TKO.

, a wrestling promotions who's objective was clear to offer quality wrestling unmatchable by any forms of competition.
