chalmer79 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
aspiring fighter

I'm a 32 year old male with a strong Tae Kwon Do back ground
I've competed in full contact tournaments in the past as a teen I also dabbled in mma a few years back learning wrestling ( very little) and boxing and wasn't to bad in the boxing aspect I also learned a little grappling in the Army. My question is would I still have a bit of an edge over somebody who was younger with not as much back ground? Or is my age to big of a factor?
I have no health problems and the last 2 years I've been hitting the gym adding muscle and doing low intensity cardio. Also I'm 5 feet 9 inches tall
with a 75 inch reach what would be a good weight class for me? I'm currently 235lbs and wouldn't have a problem getting to 205 could probably go down to 185 with diet and training. What do you guys think?

The heck with it! I'm going for it what's the worst that could happen I get beat up? It wouldn't be the first time. I figure maybe about 6 months to 1 year of training get a few amature fights and see how those go. If they go well I'll go pro and see how that goes. Realistically I don't think I'll make it to the big leagues unless i end up being really good. But still I want to try so even if it doesn't go anywhere maybe I can start training others I love training I have ever since I was 8. So here I go please wish me luck I'm gonna shoot for 205 lbs.
