    I'm not talking in order to compete in MMA. Just like a lifelong sport and self-defense method. No cross training.


    1. BJJ Black Belt, Abu Dhabi competitor level.

    2. Karate Black Belt (not talking about a McDojo, but a legit, great one, like WB or Lyoto).

    3. Wrestler, national team calyber.

    4. Judoka, asian national team calyber.

    5. Boxer, national team level.

    6. Muay thai/Kickboxer, national team level.


    P.S.: Save the "Jeet Kun Do, Bruce Lee level" or "Aikido, Steven Seagal level" replies. Choose from the list.

    A UFC fighter...since this is in UFC discussion. That's my only reasoning, really.

    No cross training makes this complicated.

    Muay Thai has played a very important part of my life and I love it but grappling has always been my best skill. BJJ at a high level would be ok with me.
