Brock Lesnar Signs with the UFC?

According to an interview made to Kurt Angle earlier this week, it seems that Brock Lesnar has signed a 3-4 fight deal with the UFC.  Kurt is a former Olympic amateur wrestler and a WCW World Heavyweight Champion.

During a Fox Sports interview with Kurt Angle, he mentions the fact that Lesnar seems to have signed with the UFC.  Dana White has not yet released such a report to the media, so it may be one of those things that just hasn’t been stated publically.

This is directly from FoxSports:

Angle had tried negotiating with different MMA organizations to work a
match against Brock Lesnar, another former amateur and pro wrestling
star who has branched into legitimate fighting. Angle, though, said
those negotiations fell through when Lesnar signed a contract with the
UFC.

“We figured we would make somebody a hell of a lot of money,” Angle
said. “We were talking about it, but Brock jumped the gun and went to
UFC right away and struck a deal. I don’t blame him. The kid honestly
wants to do three or four fights and retire. He’s going to make that
kind of money. I give him a lot of credit for that.

“I don’t need to do this for the money. I make a lot of money and have
a lot of money, thankfully. I’m doing this because I want to do it. I’m
a big fan and have a big interest in it.”
