    What kind of experience do currently have? About to start training 6 days/week is easier said than done if you've never trained before.

    Not enough at all. My guys who train 5-6 days a week have to be training 6-9 months before I will do a 12 week work up to get them in the ring (9-12 months total) and I am on the shorter side of total prep time. This is ammy MMA, and most decent coaches want 1-2 years of dedicated training before a first fight.

    That's encouraging actually. I'm about to start training myself once I graduate in June (can't now, I'm a varsity athlete), and I was afraid it would take longer than that. If I could be ready for a fight within a year and a half, that would be awesome :) Currently the only experience I have is some limited BJJ, as well as 10+ years of karate which unfortunately doesn't help too much.

    You can definitely be ready in 18 months. Assuming an Amatuer fight. But it wont be at a 2-3 days a week training pace. If you put in 5-6 days a week, unless you are a terrible athlete you should be ready for another first timer easily.
