I was just wondering who on here actually fights competitively in MMA and also if anyone just trains in it?

just, y'know, cos im nosey like that...so :

Do you Train in MMA?
If so, how long have you trained?

Do you compete?
If so, at what level?

If you don't train in MMA or dont compete, what are the reasons for this?

Cool!

Im a relative Newbie to it as i trained boxing for a bout a yeah then moved onto MMA about 6 months ago.

Doubt I'll ever fight competatively though as my wife recently had a baby so i dont have the time to commit to the training required.

i'm noob, been doing it for about a month and at the moment i would get whooped and my boxing co-ordination sucks, if you have done it for 6 months you can fight right now if your coach thinks you are ready.

oh, i know i could fight right now, but i'd want to train 4-5 times a week for the 3 months prior to a fight but that just isnt possible at the minute.

yeah you need good cardio, technique, flexibility the works, but you'll be starting at amateur so if you already have a pretty strong physique then you would probably win atm.

my cardio is already decent and i'd say my standup is good. My Jits is real basic at the minute though and i wouldnt be comfortable going into a fight where i couldn't defend myself on the ground.

i'm in no hurry though, im not in mma to compete, i just enjoy the training and learning new stuff. If the day comes where i feel like i can commit to fighting then i will go for it.

yeah if you ain't ready there is no rush, i have learned that whenever you are on your back and they try to transition that you should always hold onto dear life on one of the legs or back(i know that might be common knowledge) i pretty much need all the skills and fitness you have now and more b4 i'm ready

funny you should say that cos im currently on a rest period having torn my Roatator cuff a couple of weeks ago.
Sucks is not the word. I hate not being able to train.

Im currently at 172ish...if i were to fight i'd probably cut to 155...alternatively i have plans to get back to the gym and hit the weights properly so if i can put on 10-15lb of lean muscle i'd go in at 170. (this is all theoretical though)

I know it...my injury was a freak chance.....I was in a guys guard and got swept....now he was in mount but his heel was under my left side...I bucked and bridged and it felt like I cramped up on my left side....But it didnt go away and I almost wasnt able to stand up.........oh and UFC trust me I have been hittin it hard this week I want to walk around at 195 -200 at anytime ....I think 15 would be my max for a cut
