Howdy!
 
What up fellas my name is Chris and I am a kickboxer from Ireland and sort of a new comer to MMA (Fights that is, life long fan).

My story: I went undefeated in all my 16 kickboxing bouts and 4 - 0 in MMA. A few years ago I was to be called up to Cage Wars(UK fighting promotion)but I suffered an awful ankle injury that has left me sidelined and out of shape for over 3 years.

I was competeing in a #1 contender match for the Heavyweight title in a promotion over here. I was performing an axe kick that caught the other fighter directly on top of his head which KO'ed him good right? No! Niether Me or my corner were told that the guy had a metal plate in his head from an accident he had when he was younger. Dont even know how was allowed to fight.

My ankle completely shattered leaving me with a long lasting pain. There where times that I couldnt train so I sat home playing my xbox which got me highly addicted.

I started piling on the pounds! and forgot what my goal was. Now Im struggling to get back into the shape that i use to be!.

So i guess my real reason for being on this forum is to look for other fighters techiniques and tips to try and get motivated once again! and ofcourse to rant and praise about some of my favourite figthers and keep up to date with all MMA info!

Cheers Guys!

Welcome man, the techniques section could help you and use your help too I'm sure. And there are plenty of places to talk about the bigtime fighters in the UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator or what have you around too. I'm sorry to hear about your incident too and hope you get back to it.

Restarting after a longer injury lay off sucks really. Your brain/memory tells you what you could do, but your body tells you you can't. That discrepancy is extremely demotivating. So consciously start it easy and set your training goals real low at first. That way, if you comfortably can achieve those little goals, you get positive feedback to motivate yourself. Increase the goals at a reasonable pace so you stay comfortable. After a few weeks you will have a routine and mindset of training again, then you can lift the training goals at a level where it's getting uncomfortable and you start to have to fight to achieve the goals. At that time you will be in full training and back on track again.
