Too Late to Start Training?

I am an 8th grader and I have a lot of interest in MMA and want to become a UFC fighter. I took tae-kwan-do for about 6 months a few years ago, so I would say that I have no experience. I am probably going to start ju ditsu by this summer. Is it too late to start learning to fight if I want to be in the UFC? What else should I do-what other martial arts, etc.? Thanks.

It is perfectly fine man. Your question was "too late to start?" Lets just say the legendary Randy Coture started when he was 36.

it's free, and great experience.

It's never too late to start training. It all depends on what you want to achieve.
