Noobie - Cofident I can go Pro - Qustions - Toronto

Hello, First i would like to tell you my name is Mark, right now i am sitting at 295 LBS 6'8 Height - Looking to eventualy be Pro heavyweight within ONE year or around there i have a few qustions maybe a few of you can take the time and answer

1. Starting with 0 experiance other then street fight, out of shape, but very highly motivated with positive attitude, should i look for a partner to train with, or start alone?

2. I have been told by 2 former UFC fighters, that Dana is ALWAYS open to new heavyweight especialy this yeat, information on this would be great how likly it is.

3. Should i start off with classes? Or pay the money for PERSONAL PRIVATE seasons?

4. Should i post back-yard fights, organized basement fights and other such on youtube and other website to make a new for myself?

5. Anyone recomend MMA Gyms to start off with? or even stick to? I'm not lookin to mess around time to get serious!

just because you can street fight doesnt mean you can cage fight theres a HUGE difference. gl going pro on zero experience, i look forward to seeing you downed faster than kimbo soon

1. Training with a partner can keep you motivated but there is n huge difference, just find a good gym to train at.

2. Don't mean to sound like a dream killer, but not too likely, only because you have 0 experience, train hard, fight some amateur fights, then go pro fighting for smaller organizations, work your way up to the big show, dont start there

3. This is up to you, if you have the money to blow, go with the private lessons, only because you will have all attention directed to you.

4. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO, do NOT do this AT ALL

5. Well if your in Toronto, look at Toronto BJJ.

Also just a side note, The Ultimate fighter is a great way to get your name out there, the tryouts are open to anyone and you could really go far from there

It's ok he diden't crush my dreams lol.... I honestly think i have what it takes mentally, and also my SIZE helps a great deal. i wasen't talking about going pro NOW, i am speaking in long term, 1-2 years max, Full time training. and i don't think just because i can street fight i can go pro, i only put that because that is the only experiance i have of fighting, and right now its looking fine, cant wait to see what i can do with training.

thanks for the info man, to the other guy that posted he should actually read what i posted lol

Either way.

You're not going to be ready in one year. No matter what your size, physique, attitude... you just can't learn enough in one year.

Both. Regular classes will probably be the bulk of your training - they're a cheap way to learn and practice skills. When you feel like you have the need, get some private sessions to help round things out or get personal attention. But it would cost at least six figures per year to do entirely personal sessions.

Nope. Wait until you can get into legit smaller organizations, and send THOSE fights to the UFC.

During the next UFC, listen to which teams they guys are training with. You don't HAVE to start out in those training teams... but it wouldn't hurt.
