A New Perspective on Amateur Fighting
Hi Everyone!

I need your help. I was an active high school wrestler and have been passively training in Muay Thai and Jiu jitsu for the last two years. I'm about to graduate college and have always had this dream of taking a year off to train for one MMA event before med school.

My dream is to make a video blog that takes viewers through the mind and training regime of the average amateur fighter. I want to be able to discuss nutrition, philosophy, training, and mental health as amateurs prepare to compete.

Is this something people would watch? Any ideas or suggestions? I want this to be a smart and entertaining look into the everyday mental condition of the average (not world class) fighter.

I plan on moving out of the state to do this so all my surroundings will be new.

I would think taking a year off to train for 1 fight, let alone an ameteur fight is a bit excessive. Especially as you already have some relevant skills.

I can't imagine it would be a huge hit, given the amount of insight and "backstage" access we have of top level pro fighters these days. But if you want to do it, then do it.

I just had my first ameteur fight but intend to go as far as I can as a pro. Just doesn't make sense to spend a year training for something that you are only going to do once....
