Include your goals!

Why do you want to train? What type of training do you already have? It seems to me that today's MMA fighter can learn boxing, wrestling, and submission defense and be all set. Doesn't seem to be a real need in anything fancy.

i take Tae Kwon Do. You probley would not be able to use much of that in UFC style fighting, some of the basic kicks you could, but it is designed to strike your opponent in life threating pressure point areas from a distance. It would not do any good up close(ie your back on a mat) and most of the moves, beoynd the basics would be illegal occurding to the UFC rules (as far as where to hit/kick and with what part of the body used). But most TKD schools teach "tournament style" which mine does not, it's more ancient militant style. The only person i can think of off hand that started in UFC with a black belt in TKD is Kimo Leopoldo. But Kimo studied up on a mixture of boxing and grappling techniques. If i were you i'd go in and check out the schools, instructors and what is going on in there class and choose first hand. If intersested in MMA fighting (ie: pride, UFC ect..) i'd look for a MMA Camp somewhere in your area.

Definitely, if you have any kickboxing or Muy thai around, take that.
Also, take any type of Ju-Jitsu. it increases your grappling skill tremendously and it can help you with submissions better. learn some judo as well. it's a type of wrestling.
