I want to be an Amateur MMA Fighter!
We get asked all the time "How do I get some ammy fights in MMA?"
According to an article by Astrid Bidanec, How Can I Fight in Amateur MMA?, "Fighting in amateur mixed martial arts is a great way to test your skills and evaluate if you have what it takes to become a professional MMA fighter. At a minimum, you have to be 18-years-old and train consistently with a reputable MMA coach for six months, according to MMA coach Rafael Garcia. Regulations for amateur MMA vary from state to state, but fight promoters generally choose fighters for their events at their own discretion."
In most states you do need to be at least 18 years of age before you step into the ring, and you should have at least 6 month's of experience in one or more of the martial arts that make up MMA. Don't try to jump on the MMA-bandwagon and jump into the ring before you're ready, as you could get injured!
Like driving a car, you don't want to get behind the wheel on the road until you've gotten some training AND practice time in, right? Same thing applies here.
Bidanec also says to:
"Sign up with a local MMA coach; Train MMA consistently; Contact an amateur MMA promoter; Get blood tests for HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C a few weeks before your upcoming amateur MMA fight; Get a pregnancy test if you're a female fighter; Submit your amateur fighter registration form, pass your physical exam and weigh in; Wear your mouth piece, shin guard and gloves when you enter the ring or cage; and lastly, Score points with punches, kicks and take downs while aiming for a knock out or submission."
Makes sense! Please go read the rest of this great article by Astrid Bidanec. You can go here to read it in its etirety.
