just wanted to post a topic to ask this question: how long will it take for me to become a professional fighter? I just started out mma training, but I was a state runner-up in wrestling in high school in the state of Oregon, and I played football in college, and I am an elite level athlete. I am 6’2” 215 and probably around 12% bodyfat rn, and I have access to an elite level gym here in Phoenix and I train just about every day. I can bench 225 18 times and my max in deadlift currently is in the mid 500s. I have really no mma experience except for wrestling, but I am willing to give this all my effort for 1-2 years and see where it takes me. Does anyone have any guesses how long it would take for me to get signed on professionally? 6’1.5” and 212lbs to be more accurate, with a 76 1/2” reach.
