I was wondering 4 everyone here that fights, how long did you train for b4 your first fight? Also if you feel like typing a little, what styles did you train? I was just wondering because I am about to start training and there's a fight at the end of July. I don't think I would be ready by then to compete but you never know till then. What's your opinion?
Do you mean grappling match or mma fight?

I know someone who has only trained for 6 weeks and they are entering there first grappling tournament this Saturday. I have heard of even less time. I have been training for almost 6 months and will be entering my first tournament this Saturday. Not sure about MMA if that is what you are asking.
ttt. i am interested to hear what people say. but i think this question might be answered better in the ask the fighter section
Yeah, I meant MMA, I wanted to post in the Fighters forum, but for some reason I'm not able to because I don't have permision(Maybe I don't have enough post?). So I put it here, but if people want to say how long they trained before a tourney I would like to hear that also. If you post, post how u did also if you don't mind. Sorry I put it here, but this is pretty much the only forum I read.
I would say a MINIMUM of 2 stripe blue belt in bjj, and then a year of MT and wrestling to supplement it.
