Why place so much importance on something like a belt when it comes to training? If you want to get into MMA, get into that now and pick up your Jitz, Boxing, MT and Wrestling along the way. Check out the pedigree of many of your current and past champions. You'll find that many received their black belts well after they found success within the UFC.

Because if i go into a MMA gym right now, i won't be focusing on grappling alone. When i master Jiu Jitsu or become extreme skilled at it, then i will work on my knees, elbows, kicks, clinches, and transitions. but for now this is all i have access to and i feel like punching and submissions are the crucial part of MMA

If you have good Boxing then TDD and Sub Defense are all you really need to learn.

This is what you need to do though: You don't have the income to support going to more than one gym as it appears, so leave your boxing gym and join an MMA gym, you will still learn punches, kicks, knees, elbows, tds and groundwork. It's just a lot smarter to be a well rounded fighter.

Ask Demian Maia what being a master of BJJ has done for him.

Well to be honest i would like to stay at my boxing gym and also attend the MMA gym at the same time. However, Legends MMA has an abnormal policy to me. You have to make an appointment before you go, you share lockers with pole dancers, and I've heard of people getting charged more money than what they were supposed to do, that's why some left the gym

Man, wrestling is probably the most important skill to have in modern mma. You have to embed that in your skill set, ate least TDD if you wanna to aspire being someone in mma so imo you should start working on that aspect asap.
Besides it's not fair to judge on "hear say".
Give it a try before accusing them of bad policies.

Hmm, i would really like to learn 10th planet jiu jitsu, but after reading 4 negative reviews on yelp, I'm not too positive. I might have to go with the Gracie Barra but not sure if they're as good as Eddie Bravo's....
