Born a fighter?!?!

Do you think you have to be born a fighter, or fight a lot on the streets growin up to succeed in MMA? Or you think its somethine you can learn and adapt to, to someday become good at it?

I didnt get in very many street fights at all growing up and im a very non confrontational person but I have been doing mma, and have gotten decent at it and I think I will have a good career. You cant honestly think guys like Kenflo or Big Nog got in a light of fights growing up. I think you are born a fighter because you have to have a fighter's heart but that doesnt mean you will get into street fights growing up

I wasn't born a fighter, but i have always been a quiet person, and know when to speak up on certain issues. Plus, i pretty much don't put up with anyone's BS which is the attitude i have had my whole life (thanks to my mother) But as i close out my 30's and head into the 40 year old range, i'm more diplomatic and calmer than i used to be, and having two kids has helped the "mellowing out" process as well. But i know that it would have to be a real good reason for me to tangle with someone.

All I'll say is some people who haven't been in any real fights have unrealistic ideas about fights. Sometimes they learn a slightly impractical martial art - then get their ass kicked. But not neacessarily of course. And some people fight a lot but still suck at it.
(I'm not talking from experience just observation)

I think your killer instinct is something that your only born with and you can't really train much. But no, I don't think you need to be in many if any street fights to be good in mma. But you sure need some decent genetics.

The ability to fight is like anything else in life, it is something you have to have natural aptitude at. You don't really have to had been in many street fights, because I never really did. But ive recently jumped into MMA and learned that I had it in me all along. On the other hand, some guys can train their whole life, and never really be good at it. Natural skill and aptitude are a must.

How do you differntiate between a fighter who was born with natural skill and one who has learned it?

thats just it it doesnt matter. As long as you have the ability to apply it I personally dont care if you woke up one day with that skill or if you had to drill it 10,000 times. Its just about fighting.

Say you have two fighters with equal skill sets and abilities. And one fighter got it in half the time and effort. He'd be considered more naturally skilled. Think BJ penn vs everyone else.
