If you got some natrual talent for the sport then its not. There are such good coaches out there now that what took 3-4 years to learn is now 2-3 years. You train hard and get in great shape then by the time your 22 you would be ready to have a fight in the smaller shows.

i'm 18 now and i just started training when i was 17. i'm gettin pretty good but nothin special yet. but i also did some martial arts when i was a kid so i had a lil experience when i started. but i don't care if someone told me that it would have been too late for me if i had started at 14 because this is my dream. i'm goin to do whatever it takes. i suggest if you feel the same way then you should also do the same. good luck to you bro.

Thumbs up

Im 17 an i have the exact same dream as you. I have minimal experiance im mma ive done a little boxing in school at the age of 15 an a good few weeks of pad an heavy bag work at home. I have been told by other fighters that i was too old to pursue a career in mma an would never be a top class fighter. If you have a dream never give up on it no matter what anyone says only you know if it's too much for you. find yourself a good gym with top coaches an training partners, eat well an most of all train hard an put maximun effort in an you will get somewhere in the sport.

Good Luck.

Luckly mma is very versatile and your not at all too old as long as your dedicated as evidenced by past and current fighters.

yea what is too old? I'm 24, if it took me 4 years of learning to be good, at 28 I feel like I'd have many years of fighting, maybe not a career but to get good at MMA at least.
