Im trying to help him with "exactly" what it is he wants, wether that be pro or fun or whatever.
But UFC is not just pro, once you compete in MMA shows even the little ones thats when your mma record starts, and after about 4 or so of these events your conssidered pro because you hve experience, soetimes they do amutuer fights in my area and in order to qualify you have to have less then 3 mma fights.
Personally im dont get into a ring to loose, anyone can loose but dont go into a ring after 3 months of training like "oh this will be fun" because its not fun to be someone punching bag. Go in when you know your ready and when if you loose you know its because the other fighter was the better fighter that night.
However, after about 2 months you would be ready for some jiu jitsu tournaments and stuff thats just the kinda fun and motivating thing anyone should do before going into straight MMA. These tourny's always go by experience, novice, beginner, intermediate, advanced, etc etc
