First MMA lesson

Hey all.

Had my first MMA class today and loved it. We did wrestling jiu-jitsu rolling the last 15 minutes and i was suprisingly good at it - won most the wrestling and got guys in triangles and armbars (though not learnt the proper technique yet so had trouble finishing the submission).

I'd love to turn pro one day, so just wondered how long it normally takes before one has an amateur fight and then pro fight if good enough. Bearing in mind i have zero background in anything, i'm literally starting from scratch (though i've always done other sports and am quite fit). I'm 22 and weigh 155 pounds (so guessing i would cut to 145 or possibly 135). Plan to train MMA 4 times a week, jiu-jitsu 2 times and submission wrestling 2 times.

Cheers for any advice.



Events Attended: UFC 120, CWFC 45, CWFC 52
