    To all the real life fighters on here or people who are actually training in North America and are in the know... preferably Canada or close to it


    What are you guys/your gyms doing right now for fights??...Anybody actually getting scraps in?

    I was getting my muay thai training in before covid started locking everything down here in Toronto , trying to prepare with my Japanese Jujitsu background for my first MMA fight but with covid everything has kinda stopped to the best of my knowledge


    So who's offering fights right now?..im getting tired of the waiting...havent competed in so long and im developing a Covid couch body lol...which ive now started a home training camp as of yesterday


    I want to know if i wanted to where could i book a fight?...if anywhere or am i stuck waiting

    Not a fighter, but I just wanna say I respect you and the guys like you who actually train and fight, whether it's your passion or a way to make a living. All the best.

    I'm not a fighter but I do roll a tad and my Lifting Gym and JiuJitsu only closed for a few weeks and its been life as usual. Just like rolling in the past during Flu Season. Everything is going good. Hope you find somewhere to fight and best of luck.

    Covid didn't lock anything down btw but your authoritarian government did. Good luck finding some fights though. I know the UFC are putting on event still so that might be an option. When are we going to see you in there champ?

    Georgia so its a bit far for you. Check out NFC Fighting in Atl fights are going on as usual. One in a couple weeks and another one in April and so on. Along with many grappling tourneys still happening.

    NYC gyms are open, regular gyms as well as martial arts gyms, to my knowledge. Probably New York State the same? Just assuming. Booking fights I'm not sure about, but I think you could definitely train or spar in NY.

    Edit: I think ECF (regional NYC promotion) is already scheduling events for 2021 in NY.

    If you've got a Brock Lesnar phyisque you could get there with a 3-0 record or so.

    Updated my post, this regional promo in NYC is already scheduling events I think. They are also recruiting fighters on Facebook and their website for their next events:

    https://www.extremecagefightingnyc.com/
    https://www.facebook.com/ECFMMA

    About the restrictions, I don't think there's anyone who will make you comply with any restrictions coming in, although you'd have to look into it. You might need a negative test in order to travel or something, but I really don't know. Going back to Canada not sure how that works either, I've heard people have to quarantine for 2 weeks.
