18 yr old, very athletic + fit, want to get into MMA/UFC style training

I followed the sport for about a year now and I just recently decided that I want to get involved.

Background :

18 yrs old, 160 lbs, 3 yrs weightlifting experience.
I have always trained like a bodybuilder, and in HS I played soccer + baseball (baseball only because of my speed)

I am very quick and athletic, but have NO fighting/MMA experience.

I have ZERO exp. including wrestling.

As for now, I am working on endurance but want to take a few classes learning basics of EVERYTHING, (ground work, stand up work, defense, etc.. EVERYTHING)

If there is a specialty trainers like this or if anyone has any info on how to help me start, PLS respond or Msg me on AIM.. kevimmattix480 .. or direct me where to go to get help

If this is in the wrong section can sum1 pls tell me where to put it

Well I don't really know what to say, find a good MMA gym and train standup and grappling.

Sounds like you have all the qualifications.
1. Soccer experience
2. High school baseball
3. 3 yes 3 years of lifting which would mean you started lifting at 15
4. Didn't wrestle in high school(arguably the most important facet of MMA)

i`d say do something a little different, try judo and then do a good standup style like savate.

Just go to different gyms in your area, talk with the coaches and see which gym clicks with you. They will teach you what you must know grasshopper....

Take wrestling classes first, wrestling is a great foundation for BJJ. And wtf @ savate?

yah, savate. It doesnt focus on power like muai thai but you become twice as quick and much more dynamic in your footwork. Savate will focus on flexibility, conditioning and kicks/punches that flow well together.

Then after learning some savate basics i would move to muai thai, it`l be much easier, ask people who do both and they`ll tell you muai thai seems brutish and clunky after training savate for some time. Although yes there is much to be learned from muai thai in terms of power, knees etc i`d get into that second.
