    Do you guys have people in the gym who are really good but don't fight or compete? It makes me wonder why am I fighting if this guy's better than me?

    Lots of guys like that.

    Edit: There is ALWAYS someone better than you. Unless your A. Silva or Fedor.

    not everybody wants to fight/compete. There's lots ofreaaons people do MMA/bjj/MT that have nothing to do with winning.

    I thought this was going to be a thread on guys who morally won't fight, period.

    Expecting alot of hard gym talk and plenty of gay insults. I'll leave now.

    Those are the ones I'm talking about. They're really good, but don't want to fight for some reason. I know not everyone has a competitive nature, but I also get the sense that some guys are too modest about their abilities. I'm in between. I will fight but I won't pay to do it.

    There's nothing wrong with a good fighter who doesn't fight and just trains because he has no interest in actually fighting. Now if it's a dude who wants to fight but doesn't think he's good enough yet then you can't really push the dude into it.

    Just fight and compete for the love of it. Some guys cant fight because they cant afford to get hurt or they just practice for exercise and fun....Its all about having fun, everyone loses

    That's me. I am a fan of MMA and MT/BJJ so I do it as a hobby. There are people that are better than me, and there are people I can beat. I do however plan to compete sometime I am just very negative on myself though. I want to beat the crap outta Phazel for fun though, I don't care how I look after I'll make sure he looks 3 times worse. He's gotta get close enough to hit me, which will be close enough for me to hit him.

    Im a competitor I like to compete. I can understand why some dont want to as competing in combat sports are a bit of a headfuck for some people.

    I was supposed to fight in an amateur american kickboxing tournament 2 years ago. It was an honor that my coach felt that I was ready to compete.

    I trained hard everyday, but in the end decided not to compete because my mother pretty much begged me not to fight. This also lead me to stopping training all together out of frustration. Came back after 6 months.

    I'm back at the gym and I'm better than ever, but I don't have the heart to compete within the next 2 years in either kickboxing or mma. I have too much shit going on and I can't risk an injury at all. However, I'm preparing to join the no-gi pan ams next year...
