What jay said.

The only really significant things about the guys that make the big time is their dedication. At least for most of them. You have to train for years and fight on the small circuit for a little while, as well as compete in other combat sports: wrestling, boxing, kickboxing and/or grappling.

The one consistency for the fighter that I consider "good" fighters is the dedication to the sport. It's about the passion.

I've noticed that alot of MA gyms hook up their better students with MMA fights when they ask. This seems particularly true for BJJ schools.

Join a gym.

any mma or BJJ gym should know local fight promoters.
Fight in some small venues, tape them.
YOu can send tapes of yourself and your fights to the UFC.
