I feel your pain man. I don't compete in MMA and dont think i ever will but i boxed for 3 1/2 years and started training BJJ and thai boxing abotu 18 months ago and to be honest with you the first year sucks. You get beat up and get sore as hell and it's only when you really start thinking about it that you realise how much you've actually learnt from it all.

Getting your ass handed to you is such an important part of training though and the only way you learn to improve/ get your body used to the pain. I remember the first few months of throwing leg kicks... it was ******* agony but I've got to the point now where the pain is basically non existent.
The best thing you can do is learn to enjoy the struggle - in my BJJ sessions now i probably prefer being on my back than in top position (No gay jokes pls...) and trust me the pay off is well worth it, i remember subbing my BJJ instructor for the first (and only...) time, it was an incredible feeling.

Anyways keep us informed with how its going and good luck! Chase that yankee dollar!

When you're sore, though, remember that your body is building new muscle in the repairing process.

One thing that wasn't mentioned yet. You need to be REAL careful when you start going 2 hrs 5 days a week. With poor cardio and having not trained in a while, you're much more suceptible to an injury. I admire what you're doing and I'd hate to see your shot derailed because you got hurt. keep us posted and good luck!

mfer has a little shameless behaviour in the past
this is a horrible idea. the money of 3 pro fights could be made in 1 month at a full time minimum wage job. if you are doing this for money you should explore other options.

What does your training schedule look like? Can you give specific details?
