    :confused: Hey Guys, I know these threads are starting to get really old, but I am 17 and pretty unfit, but I'm looking to get into some amateur MMA. Can I, or is it too late?

    Go to your nearest MMA gym and train. That is all.

    17? Shiiiiit.

    Man, I know guys in their 40's that have started training then fought ammy. And won.

    Well, I actually only really know one. But I do know quite a few in their mid-to-late 30's.

    Try out the gyms, see what fits best for you, and train your ass off. But ease into at first (at least the first few weeks). No sense in injuring yourself.

    If youve got the money, find a good MMA/BJJ place where you can get grappling experience, but also find a nearby boxing gym to train your hands.

    MMA striking being taught at these gyms is getting worse by the day.
