Kurt Angle caused a stir while proting his new movie Warrior with MMAWeekly.com. Apparently he told the website that he at one point contacted UFC President Dana White after the movie was done taped and flew out to meet him. He claims that he was considering dropping Impact Wrestling in favor of a UFC contract. Dana White took to Twitter and said the the claims are false. “Love Kurt but not true,” White said.

Here is what Angle said: “I actually contacted Dana White again after the movie. I flew out to meet him once and got a great offer. I contacted him 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. 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. The terms weren’t good, I mean not for me, and the terms I gave him weren’t good for him. He wanted me ready in four-and-a-half weeks; I wanted three to six months. So I respect Dana White and I love him to death, very good friend. I knew I was capable of winning in four-and-a-half weeks, but I wanted to be at my best.”
