    Default 1st time fighter looking for possible match up in 6mths

    What would be the best organisations for a heavyweight mma fighter with no cage experience, fight for in terms of evenly matched up and looked after. Looking at october time!

    Naughtygoose. Thanks for the advice. Dont some fighters fight for themselves/not club, yet attend bjj/mma classes whenever they do?

    They do,and that is an option but I wouldn't personally recommend it. You would be putting yourself at the mercy of a promoter who might be more interested in selling tickets than your safety or your development (although a lot of promoters aren't like that).if you put yourself in the hands of a coach and a gym,then they will care more about you than how many tickets are sold.i couldn't think of anything worse than stepping into a cage against someone with 10 times the experience and skillet than me,but it does happen.
    Hope this helps somewhat

    You're not necessarily putting yourself at the mercy of a promoter, if you train at a few gyms as an independent due to work commitments and you have a sound head on your shoulders, you should be able to manage yourself, making sure you get the right fights, anyone who allows themself to be put in there with someone who outmatches them obviously isn't unless their reasoning isn't necessarily to progress into a serious fighter. If you don't want to sell tickets you don't have to, make the promoter aware and take what you have to to get started.

    A local one.get yourself to a credible gym (if your not already at one) and tell your coach your plans,he will find you the right show and matchup.
