But you have to understand some people don't train to make it "big" (other than the late 20's people who walk into your gym). I know when I first started training it was purely for self-defense. I got into a lot of fights in high school and I was a small kid in 9th grade, only about 5'7 - 130 lbs, (I am now 5'11 - 170 lbs). After training for a while I really got into it though and started wanting to fight as an ameteur, which indeed never happened, reason why mentioned in the above post.
