    Thinking of becoming a MMA Fighter (srs)

    There are a few guys at my gym who see a lot of potential in me in my first 8 months fighting. I'm taking down 3-4 year guys at my MMA class... my easiest martial art to learn is my jujitsu I goto a Gracie bjj gym, home of the best team in our entire state.. I want to fight atleast 30 amateur fights for fun. I wanna go out fighting!!!

    I'm thinking of earning respect like donald cerrone and fighting 4-5 matches a year once I'm ready.. my standup is pretty decent. I'm very fast but I sorta lack enough punching power to put those guys to sleep. I'm too old (33 next month) to take this thing too seriously so my goals arent making it or becoming the next big star. I'm really looking to earn the respect from my peers and teammates.. you never know I might share a fight with a huge upcoming prospect one day and that'll feel good to me!

    Nice, got any videos of your stand-up?

    Taking 30 ammy fights is taking it serious though... why not get 5 fights under your belt and turn pro?

    Sorry I dont like sharing pictures or video of me on bodybuilding.com forums... been a miscr since 2008 and I've seen a lot of hateful stuff go down here.

    Thinking about it & you're right, its definitely easier to just try and go Pro... i think I'll split my career down to 4 fights instead.. if I wanna go 30 or more my body might not handle going into camp 4-5 times a year which is why cowboy is someone I have so much respect for... I need to atleast make the decision to get in there first and find out if this is something I'll ever do again.

    The biggest part stopping me from doing this is losing a fight. Do you remember Aldos crying after McGregor knocked him out? It's always bothered me tremendously when I've ever lost a fight.. it's hard to handle.. jeremy Stephen's made it to the #4 rank in the world featherweight then lost to Aldo and his hopes to become champion were gone - he's admitted in an interview to feeling suicidal after that happened to him.... I have no clue how I'd handle losing that spot either. Just think of your mental state when letting your dreams slip away after losing your first championship fight. It's all brutal!!

    I should have been a cage fighter myself

    I retire undefeated underground street fighting champion. Could have turned that into a UFC career worth millions. Some of the guys you know in the UFC did underground fights with me back in the day and lets just say they got spanked. Not naming names because of street code.

    But then i gave up my prime of my life for my country in spec ops, thats about all I can say on that, the rest is highly classified

    Yea 4 or 5 fights as an amature sounds good. I had a striking coach mention even sparring sessions where you're trying to go for knock outs counts as a fight and should be included in your record.

    Yea those guys put a lot on the line to fight for the title. Kinda sucks to see them lose but that's why I respect them even more as a fan.

    Have you calculated how much years that takes, if you fight let's say every 4 months?

    Naw but when I thought about it I didnt care how long I have to do it. Just keep fighting. I dont think my body can handle that life because I'd be a very busy man through all that. There are quite a few guys out there with many fights like that who've never made the professional level. I seen one of them get a shot against dave Bautista but he took a dive I think lol. going to make the decision on if and when to step in for the first time after I get a blue belt in bjj.

    Do a few amateur fights, see how you do and how you like it. If you do well and like it, take some pro fights and see what happens. Just know it's really, really, really hard to make it to the UFC. You pretty much gotta be in a gym with UFC connections (Jackson-Winkeljohn, AKA, etc...) and do very well, or a gym without UFC connections and do exceptionally well.

    I've trained with guys who were very good on the local circuit and they then fought the next tier of competition and got destroyed. One guy was 8-0 on the locals all first or second round finishes, then he fought a WEC reject (this was like a decade ago) and got destroyed.

    Unless you really have a clear opportunity to make good money and are absolutely destroying people and are in freakish health and with great genetics where nothing hurts you and you don’t ever get injured, you should NOT become an MMA fighter. All you will have later in life is arthritis, injuries, headaches, and a poster on a wall with your name on it (whoop dee doo)

    It’s a difficult life. In most cases it’s not worth it. You can be a sheit doctor or an average lawyer and pull in 200k easily and without getting kicked in the head.

    You definitely gotta try to do what you love, but at least try to think of something where you don’t get broken bones, that stuff hurts later in life when you suddenly will realize it was not worth it.

    In fairness, doing work one doesn’t enjoy is actually fine if it’s worth it, like if the pay is great, that’s why there are weekends and holidays. I happened to do what I like, so for me I never understood a concept of friday nights or holidays or vacations, since I never actually worked, I just did my hobby for a living, but some of my friends do what they do not like but they are happy, since there is great pay and lots of time off anyway.


    If you are Randy Couture or something, then yeah, it was worth it, you got rich, as long as you are ok with a lifetime of pain.

    Imagine wanting to get your head punched and kicked in for a living.

    Someone like Dana must be laughing his head off at his fighters. They take all the hits and body and brain damage and he rakes in the hundreds of million, gets to shag all the octagon girls AND his fighters call him "sir."

    Fighters are cucks.

    Getting fkked up for no money has got to be one of the dumbest ideas ever. Due to your age, if you ever fought professionally, you'd get set up to get OJ Simpson'd into next week as part of a highlight reel for an up and comer.

    Fighting "professionally" for you means on some reservation or chitty bar with effectively no drug testing? For some "respect"?

    Have you ever seen someone get their jaw or orbital broken?

    Do you know what happens to guys that have lots of fights?

    Agreed if it's no money. But i'd rather be a fighter and make low 6 figures than work a desk job dead srs

    Also that's not the norm... That guy was a punching bag brah, he said himself he fought 3 times a night without rest

    Bro how can you compare the top 1% of professional athletes in MMA to being a well paid office worker?

    The number of guys truly making low 6 figures in the MMA fight game is LAUGHABLY low, and blink of an eye for longevity.

    Barely anyone in the UFC breaks 6 figures. Any of the good trades will make more than 90% of fighters in the UFC.

    As for not being the norm, here are fighters I can think of off the top of my head:
    Chuck Liddell
    Jens Pulver
    Forrest Griffin
    Leonard Garcia
    Both Diaz brothers
    Wanderlei Silva

    Lots of fighters that never make it off of an undercard or into a big promo also suffer the same consequences. You just don't hear about them because they never made any money or a name for themselves.

I want to fight atleast 30 amateur fights for fun. I wanna go out fighting!!!

    I'm thinking of earning respect like donald cerrone and fighting 4-5 matches a year once I'm ready.. my standup is pretty decent. I'm very fast but I sorta lack enough punching power to put those guys to sleep. I'm too old (33 next month) to take this thing too seriously so my goals arent making it or becoming the next big star. I'm really looking to earn the respect from my peers and teammates.. you never know I might share a fight with a huge upcoming prospect one day and that'll feel good to me!
    Where do you train? What city ? I trained at a Carlson gracie school in chicago
    my info is GOLD

    There are many benefits to fighting. Even if for fun or just seeing where it goes. Straight up as a profession it’s rough though. People who train don’t realize that there is a difference between the competitors and the guys who just simply train, doesn’t matter how dedicated they are to training.
