    I haven't been training in MMA for very long and I'm wondering how soon i would be able to start an amateur fight career? I know i gotta ways to go and theres a lot i gotta learn, but I wanna fight, period. I won't mind losing any amateur fights because i just want ring and actual fight experience. Also, do you guys know how many amateurs fights u can have before u go pro, or is it just ur decision to turn pro when offered?

    I say its better to go in overprepared than anything. How long have you been training and whats your background?
