    Default Age limit for mma?...

    Hows it goin all..

    I'l keep this short an sweet.

    at 29, am I 'too old' to consider training for an mma fight,
    be it amateur/semi pro rules or whatever.

    (iv got a feeling the name randy couture will be mentioned a couple times )

    Skills wise im not starting from complete scratch, ( 'in and out' of martial arts such as kick/thai boxing, boxing, over the years.
    although no competitive fights ......

    what options are open to me?

    All opinions appreciated!
    Cheers

    You're not too old. Get into it.
    Some people who train regular can fight pro within 2 years if they're smart enough. By that age you'll be 31.

    ive got a fighter who last year won the heavyweight uk MMA league amateur title and the welsh grapple and strike heavyweight title at the age of 45.

    none of his opponents thought he was too old

    get stuck in and enjoy yourself.

    Im 31, started training 8 months ago with no previous sporting or martial arts experience, i have now had 4 mma fights (2-1-1) and taken part in a couple of grappling comps.

    Do it

    Its actually a good time to do it. I think with maturity you can apply yourself better. I spent my twenties without any real focus or goals to my training so I ended up not really achieving anything.

    Hit my thirties realised something had to change and set some goals and I am now fighting Gunnar Nelson in one of the biggest shows in Britain aired on Bravo. 29 is a good age.
