But at 29 without a single MMA fight ammy or pro under your belt - you are never fighting in the UFC.

Just enjoy training and if you want to compete, compete at a level that matches your experience and skill level.
I'm looking at a pro fight at age 27 and with good luck hope injury free and fight 6or more in a year till 29 which should give me 12 pro fights under my belt. My main reason for waiting 12 months is to get my weight down .

Good luck. There are plenty of MMA orgs in Australia these days. Valor, Australian Fighting Championships, Eternal, Brace and Nitro are just some I can remember doing predictions for on Tapology in recent times.

From what I have found this is a very quick jump in belts . I'm aiming to be in UFC within 3years I'll be (29) . Also I'm aiming to drop to 170 (currently at 297 pounds) down from 326pounds 6 weeks ago. Before injury I walked around at 210pounds also I have trained must Thai and kickboxing for 5 years. Just looking for genuine opinions on what level of bjj I should aim for . Would be helpful if there are people who comment have competed in pro mma . And general mma fans as we'll.sorry if I made it a bit long just tried to cover a bit of background to get accurate opinions. Cheers all
Five hours of training to get your Green belt? I got mine in two
