I started boxing way before MMA was popular :P

I naturally played football in high school and was in good shape, when I started taking it seriously I started taking protein suppliments.

Once you decide to train, take 2-3weeks to build your cardio. While looking for a gym for whatever fighting style u want to learn or a "mma gym".

I started trining in american kickboxing ages ago.
Once i saw MMA fights and decided to start training it took me 1 week to find the right gym and I dove right into it.

there is no such thing as a "fat burning supplement". Anything that advertises itself as such is simply out for your money. Ephedra was the closest thing to a fat burner, but to my knowledge it is banned in most plances since it is used in production of methamphetamines.
The only muscle building supplement is protein. If you have trouble putting on weight you can supplement with HMB or Bromelain which aid in protein absorbtion. The majority of supplements arent necessary for people who aren't professional athletes.

If you have a good diet you shouldnt really need any supplements at all. Im going to start training in muay thai first and ive been weight training for months not trying to get bigger or stronger but to gain endurance and lose weight. Im trying to get down to 185-190. Nutritionist told me my lean body weight is about 175. Im naturally pretty strong and an OK boxer, ive got a 73 inch reach, and im only 5' 10. So i figure thats a good base to start on
