I've loved watching it, could I do it?
 
After working out with a friend today I weighed myself. I weigh 130lbs it turns out. My friend was quite amazed by this because I'm significantly stronger than him and weigh 25lbs less. He suggested I should look into fighting.
So here are some of my stats:
5'8" 130lbs
Bench: 190lbs
Shoulder press: 110lbs
Dead lift:225lbs
Squat: 250lbs
I swam through highschool and still seem to have alright stamina. No real fighting experience, but I used to box recreationally with friends, we used to pummel eachother so I know I can take a hit.
I only work out recreationally, if i were to set my mind to training for something I know I could achieve greater stats.
Is this a good foundation for building a good fighter? If so where should I start?

I "wrestled" your 300lbs mother, that looks like Oprah... She said she couldn't walk for a week. That was rewarding enough for me.

You only deadlift 35lbs more than you bench? That doesn't make a whole lot of sense:confused02:

My excuse for that is that I'm sorta unbalanced, I deffinately spend more time on the bench press than anything else.

Fighters never spend too much time on the bench press :confused02:

How about you go and get some grappling/striking training under your belt, and make that decision for yourself. See if you enjoy it, if you do - go for it.
