I would keep my fights in the gym and have my fun that way unless I had years of experience in martial arts and grappling and was in the best condition of my life while still being in my prime. otherwise I'd stay out.

I don't know if there's any BJJ in the UK, but I would suggest that with some boxing. If you think you're going to just be able to dive right in you have the wrong idea.

I've been training MMA since I was 14 and even though I have a good MMA record, it's because I waited 4 years before I took my first fight. You got to think about how old you are and whether or not you're going to be able to get into this and compete with guys who have been doing this since childhood.

Good luck.

Sure. Look around town for promoters who work with any kind of fighting. Ask them about where to look for MMA. I can't give you any help outside of that other than never turn your back on another fighter, even outside of the ring.

Usually if you find a gym, your trainer will have an idea.

By the way, 20 is old to be starting your training. Most guys start with their martial arts training in middle school or high school. Some start as you as 8.

Good luck.
