Look for some tps,suggestions.
 
Hi , im new or better say starting mma and look for some advice and tips from other mma fighters :praise01:

So what can i say im not in best shape , but i have started to train hard, but not yet in mma. And just thinking box and bjj is good for mma as basic skills? I chose box becous i have weak uperbody and arms. Bjj i chose becous i think its would be good to know grapling basic before i start MMA. But i thinking maybe Muay Thai would be good to, becous i have good elbows and strong legs, thas would be from footbaal and runnin :thumb02:

Im mously want to learn basic in bjj and more boxing and Muay Thai becous i think im better striker , but who know :D

So i wait for some advice or tips :fight02:

My advice would be if you like striking more then grappling then I would suggest having a wrestling base over a BJJ base since it will allow you to stay on your feet easier and use more standup.

If you have good wrestling you can control where the fight takes place. That's a problem some BJJ guys have in MMA, they aren't able to get the fight to the ground where they have the advantage. Wrestlers can put strikers on their back where they aren't as comfortable and they can also stay standing vs BJJ guys. Guys like Chuck Liddell used wrestling to avoid being taken down so they could work their standup. IMO wrestling is the best base possible for MMA. Another thing that helps is being in grappling shape and running shape are very different.
Look at guys like Cole Konrad and Daniel Cormier for wrestlers with bellies lol. That won't get in the way. Actually wrestlers are the best people to talk to about cutting weight. So if you ever had to cut weight down the line they would be able to help out alot with that.

Ok this was big help :praise01: I look if in my ity is any wrestling trainings :) And yes Chuck Liddell rock :fight02:

I hope it helps, good luck. Wrestling might not be the most exciting to watch but it's very effective. You can even eventually add in some catch wrestling or submission wrestling. Alot of wrestling techniques can easily be translated to submissions. Examples are Hughes choke on Almedia and Lesnar's arm triangle on Carwin.

Granted the odds that you will make it to the big leagues with no kind of martial arts background and starting at age 20 are very, very slim. However that doesn't mean you can't win some fights on the local circuit and then who knows after that? Depends on the individual(you). What are your expectations? First you will need to go through the training and see how you feel. I see guys making their pro debuts every week on Super Fight League. Some of them are very sloppy and others are much more polished.

You can get cage time as an amateur, alot of times they go 2 rounds at 5 minutes a round. You should be able to find something fairly local. Good luck.
