My name is Eric from ND. I have been training in mma since November of 09 and love it. I played soccer for 10 years and have not had as hard of a work out as I have with mma. Like many people I was introduced to mma by seeing the UFC events on TV and became interested in the sport. I am hoping to have my first fight in August at the weight of 155 which should be easily done since I am currently 6'1" 167. Look forward to getting to know you all and looks like there is a lot of good info on here.
