New Goal

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about doing mma for awhile and recently I was talking to my weight coach and he agrees with me wanting to do it and thinks I would be good at it. But, first things first, I think I need to drop to 185 to be in the right weight class and I am at 200 or 195 right now. Is anyone on here familiar with mma fighting? I did have 8 years of taekwondo and year or 2 of wrestling but I think I need to start from scratch.

First off let me ask you this. Do you want to do this for a living? If so go to school and get a degree. Here is a little info about mma. Its a very very brutal sport. The fighters spend 40 plus hours a week in the gym. They get paid very little money. Yea there are fighters that make a lot. But they have a name in the sport and are or are former champions. There are guys out there that spend there whole life fighting in high school gyms, loges, and other small places. There not fighting for a lot of money. A few hundred dollars a fight. That is just to get them to the next fight.

Also think about your brain in the future. If I recall Muhammad Ali is the way he is because of boxing. I don't know if I would want to be like that for the rest of my life. How about you? If I had kids I would rather have them be in a 100 mph shifter cart then box, Mai Tai, or cage fight.

I had a friend that did it in a few local matches, after he got his *** kicked a few times he found a new hobby.

it is not how good of shape you are in or how good martal arts you are, it boils down to can you FIGHT.

I always say.....never know till you try! I wish you luck and hope you win every match.

If you're the meanest S.O.B. and have a ravenous desire to annihilate every one in your way , go for it. If not don't waste your time. B)

From what I've heard there is a lot to it, skill wise. I have some buddies that do it. Two of them are actually pretty good at it. Not really my cup of tea though. I prefer to brawl, MMA is to technical for my tastes. But hey to each his own.

Na i'm just doing it for fun don't really want to compete in anything but small matches even if I do compete. I don't think age really matters though because my cousin and his friends who are older than me started last year and one of them is competing in few bigger matches.

I just want to try it and see how I like it. I am already used to working out twice day and already keep to strict diet.

idk I guess ill just see how it goes.
