noob help
 
okay well let me say that as my name says i am a major noob when it comes to MMA, i have a few questions, that i am hoping some of the older posters and people that have been in the game for a while could help me out, with.

1) how much training do people need to be good in the MMA business, what types of fighting teqniques are learned? and how many?

2) how do you train for a MMA fight?

3) how long did the average ufc fighter train before they were able to fight?

thank you for all your help and please dont bash the noob to baldy.

MMA fighters train for years in thier chosen techniques. BJJ, JJJ, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Greco- Roman Wrestling, SAMBO, TKD, Judo, and many others. If your going to try and train and if your actually serious about this like most the people here are, then i think you should pick something and join up for a class of a technique, get a gym membership and start to run everyday for cardio. It takes mountains of hard work to become an mma fighter so get ready for what most of us have been doing for years: Working our @sses off!

yup more likely it will be by a guy with no natural talent but just worked his but off for years training every day.

That would either crush you or make you work harder.

Most people train constantly for two or three years before making their MMA debut, that training is usually following some training in another martial art. The fighting techniques depends on you as the individual. I consider myself a grappler, so I study BJJ, JJJ, Aikido and dabble in Sambo and Freestyle wrestling. But on top of that I train in Kempo and Muay Thai to better my striking.

Like I said, most people train with complete dedication for two or three years before taking their first fight.

The average UFC fighter is fighting for something like six years. The younger ones have been established martial artists for a lot longer than that. (Guys like Brandon Vera and BJ Penn are world class kickboxers and/or jiu-jitsu fighters)

If you're jumping into MMA, make sure you're dedicating yourself, otherwise you'll get destroyed.

u reminded me of my trainer....Im kind of a natural for learning fighting....I pick stuff fast....but my trainer is always worried cause I often end up depending on speed rather than doing it flawless....he says he had hell learning but after all the hard work and years of busting his ass he was able to become better than the ones who learned quick and where better athletes...

But now u mix hard work with natural talent and u gots a great fighting machine....


Now noob...go out and find urself a good gym...And read about fighting theory....about how, when, why things are done....

fighting is simple if u understand the principals...

I think I will take that as a compliment which I think is the spirit in which it was given... Thank you.
