    I was hoping to compete in BJJ this December and fight MMA next spring, but now that's all on hold. I've completely neglected my finances and my bills are all screwed and in collections, so I need to start cutting back and paying money I owe and stop being a failure... so MMA gets cut first. No more membership to train for a while. :wtc:

    CAD Design. Automotive design for an aftermarket bumper company. My wife works at a bank corporate office as a loan filer. We make enough money to pay our bills, but we're just young and irresponsible with our money and don't pay our bills ontime and it's fucked us. So we need to chill and get our finances straight. It sucks because I was looking foreward to fighting in the Springtime... lesson leared the hard way. Don't fuck up with debt.

    had the same financial situation when i was about 20, tip #1 - On line bill pay makes life easy to track bill payments tip #2 - don't eat out, (don't know your lifestyle so may not apply but it did to me) make your own food, it'll save you a TON of $

    stay in shape man, don't get fat like i did cause it sucks to try to get in shape again and have young guys kick your ass when you're in your 30's lol

    ah that sucks man, but if you still want to train there are cheap/free alternatives: You can wrestle with a high school team
