You can call me FighterX. I am 17. I have just started my journey into the world of MMA. I live in the Midwest, where fighting is not only accepted, but those who have the courage to trod that path find themselves somewhat of local celebrities. At the beginning of my junior year of high school, I was just a casual fan watching the UFC every once in a while, and going to local fights when they rolled through. I wrestled from the time I could walk, until my seventh grade year. I had a wrestling dad, one that pushed and pushed, and I got burned out. I took two years off, and have finally made my way back, without the urging of my father this time. Now that I am back on the mat, I can't face a life without it. Training is my heroin. It is what keeps me moving. It is why I live. I'm up before the sun, and in bed well after. Just so that I can find the time to sweat, bleed, and puke for this sport. I see MMA as the materialization of everything I've ever wanted. It gives me a reason to push myself, to make myself better. I have decided that I will do whatever it takes to get there. One day you will know me as one of the greatest fighters to ever live. I know that for sure. I have started this thread to record what I will go through every day as I make my way there. I hope for your feedback, support, and help as I make my journey.

Thank you,
Peace and love,

Your lack of confidence saddens me.

Wins and losses.
Had a wrestling tournament today. Took second. I lost twice today. Once I lost 5-1 to the kid who got first. That didn't bother me. The kid was an excellent wrestler, and I made no mistakes, he just happened to be the better wrestler. My first match of the day was the one that really got my attention. I lost to a kid I shouldn't have lost to. Coming off the mat I couldn't shake the mental anguish. An hour later it still wasn't gone. Sitting here typing this post it still isn't gone. I can't turn back time. I can't go back and decide that I finally want to work hard this time around. You get six minutes on that mat, fifteen minutes in the cage, whatever it be. You need to give it your all while you've got the chance. Do not underestimate your opponent, ever. Maybe that's why Spinks beat Ali. How long do you think that defeat stuck with Ali? How much did that torture him? You've got plenty of time rest when your dead. While competing, you need to bring your all, and never back down. Never leave yourself wishing that you could go back and try harder. There is only one shot. Make it happen.

Thank you,
Peace and Love,
