    From 15 on I dreamt of being a fighter. I thought it was a romantic lifestyle. One on one, my preparation and will against yours. How many of you young bucks still have the dream alive? Are any of you going to do anything about it or let time and age make the choice for you? What about just dreaming of winning a martial arts tournament someday? Anyone?

    I'm 40. I trained American combat for 16 years and fought amateur. I wanted to be pro. However a car accident and subsequently a bad back ended that.

    I'm 26.

    I've trained striking for a while, just getting more into BJJ. I'm hoping to have one or two amateur fights in the next 5 years. Used to want to be pro but decided against it.

    Yeah ... that's why I went to college. You were talking about what a "Great Man" Conor is. And I stand by my statement. I was too young to understand the real consequences and shady landscape of professional fighting. Look at this salty bitch digging into the archives sniping at me every chance she gets for weeks because I picked on her (her as in some old fat guy with multiple accounts) too much about being a Conor fan. No, he's not a "Great Man." We have wildly, wildly different views about the qualities that constitute a "Great Man." I was admittedly drunk and discounting Connie's achievements. Don't be such a sensitive little bitch.

    i wanted, but i started to train too late.. late in my 24 yo. i trained 3 years mainly boxing, but after that i really had to find a job so i slow down until the point that i couldn't train hard enough anymore due to work.
    i still train, but just to stay in shape.

    Jessica Eye? I think Dana does a little better for himself than Jessica Eye.

    Got punched in a Denny's parking lot once, so I basically am a fighter.

    I'm already the GOAT.

    You see these threads laughing about McGregor, GSP, Jones, Fedor, Silva being the GOAT.

    But not once will you hear my name.

    Fuck that, training is hard enough. Aches, pains, bumps, bruises, broken bones, dislocated joints, pain pills, etc. And I don’t even train with the fight team anymore. Still suffering.
