I need some serious help everyone

Hey everyone,

Its MMAF's best member here asking a serious question

Okay guys so I didn't join a MMA forum for no reason, truth is.. brace yourselves this is a shocker, I am OBSESSED with MMA. I am always thinking about MMA, I dream about MMA, well the list goes on.

Well the thing is, I am 17 years old, 155 lbs and out of shape. Heres where it hurts, I have 0 fight experience, never been in a street fight, and obv most importantly I have 0 martial arts experience. 0 Muay Thai, 0 Wrestling, 0 BJJ, 0 boxing.. well you get the idea. 0 training.

I am EXTREMELY determined to be a fighter. I am no stranger to cardio, I have been playing an elite level of soccer/football since I was 5 and cardio is essential. But I have lost it.

My question is, and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be real, yes or no and don't say yes because you love me (everyone )

Is there a possibility that I could be a successful professional mixed martial artist? I am willing to train all day everyday, I am willing to move to ******* Brazil to learn Jujitsu, I am just dam determined. So please tell me the truth. Because when I look at successful fighters they we these child prodigy's that won BJJ tournies at like 10 years old and stuff.

Oh and on a side note. I can't afford a membership to a Martial arts center right now nor do I have transportation to one.

You're young, and it is entirely possible to train yourself, if you're creative and careful.

I'd post your question in the training/nutrition forum; there are many, many knowledgeable and helpful members who post in there.

I think there is still time for you, and I would move your thread for you if I had that power but alas I am handicapped in this zone since I am only purple

If you want to be succesful you'll have to be more independent - you'll have to make your own way rather than looking for help.

But anyway good luck

Which is why discussion is occurring




The unavoidable fact is that what will determine the op's success is his own degree of activity, he will have to get on with it himself. He won't be a success due to advice he receives here. It's a competitive sport. Rather than asking us if he can make it, he will have to decide himself and he will have to be smarter about his training etc than any of us are.

You're quite right. I should have said constructive, friendly discussion.
