MMA isn't viewed as "another competition" in many U.S states. The politicians were heavily influenced by the Christian Right (political Right) and thus deemed MMA as barbaric. That was over a decade ago and still many politicians don't think that MMA is a legitimate sport. That is why it is illegal in most states, and most states that it is legal in don't allow either professional or amateur fights. So, if you're in the states check to see if your state allows MMA competitions, but I don't think you'd be allowed to fight under 18 (since you aren't a legal adult, the promoter would be liable and insurance would be incredibly high, so it would be better for a promoter to just not allow minors to fight).

Like I've said before (a couple of times), legal MMA promoters will not allow minors to fight in professional fights. Some promoters that do amateur fights may allow a minor into their competition, but liability is high. So you'll probably have to wait. Unless you want to do Muay Thai (or boxing/kickboxing) tournaments or grappling tournaments.
