My suggestion would be to talk to some of the guys where you train, and see who is already competing. They should be able to tell you how to get involved in local competitions.

Aren't you near Renzo Gracie or Matt Serra's camp? Train at their gyms and talk to some of the guys there. They can more than likely help you out.

No, Syracuse is pretty far from Serra's. Syracuse is far north.

You can find fight events online in your area at MMA FIGHT GUIDE Sometimes with the listings they advertise that they need fighters for the events. Try that.
