Micmo, you're not at all too old in my opinion. If you have time to train 4-6 days a week, well then, all I can say is go for it! That's a dream for me. I'm 19 and I wish I could train that often.

Also as for competing, you're not that old. I don't know if you'll be turning pro any time soon unless you really, really train your ass off like you say you will, but I'm sure you'll be alright in amateur fights. Hell, with that much time you'd probably do well. Also at your age, I think the training will do you good. Look at Randy Couture, I think he started fighting MMA at around 30. He's hitting 45 now and he's in top physical form.

Give it a go man, and good luck!

micmo keep doing your thing...keep the fire burning and don't let anyone say you can't do anything...just use it as more fuel to the fire

Yeah, you could do it, Randy was around your age when he did MMA, of course he wrestled before, but YOU CAN DO IT.
