Mma or Pro Wrestling?
 
So i was thinking of getting into pro wrestling but im having 2nd thoughts. I think i may try and get into Mma. I feel it could be better and make me a more rounded fighter as well as better my conditioning.
I know i have the heart of a fighter ive proved it more times then i can count sparring with people that are trained in boxing as well as wrestling. I just lack the training which isnt the issue im dealing with. The issue that im thinking about is, Is 27 to old to start? Im not saying i want to be the next Brock Lesner or Ortiz.I would like to make money doing it but more then anything to get into shape and be a well rounded fighter because these days you never know whats around the corner.
Anyways i would apriciate yalls opinions as they actualy matter to me because you guys actualy know shit about fuck and have been real good to me in the week or so ive been on this forum.
Thanks, Look forward to the responses.

I think getting into MMA is a great decision. And your never too old to push yourself to be your best so don't give your age another thought. To me, fighting is a fun way to work cardio and you never know when you might have to use your skills in the street. So its like a two for one treat!

Thanks Boz. I dot have ay other skills so really my only chance is some type of fighting. If i can get a 10 year run as a pro id be happy i guess.
I been realizing the last year that the path of music wasnt y path even thogh i thought it was.Anyway Thanks agan Boz.

Randy Couture started MMA in his mid 30's.

but he had a background in martial arts. i dont ave any real training except the year i took karate when i was ten. made it to almost green belt. my parens wouldnt pay for it anymore though. i was ten some my incoe wasnt a good amount.lol.

well if you consider greco roman wrestling a martial art, some people think that only asian fighting arts are martial arts, than yes your right. point being if you want to do it and you have the resources to do it then don't let age stop you. I'm going to be 30 and I'm also thinking of fighting.

DeanSinn 01-02-2009 12:13 PM

Good points. i didnt know what kind of martial art he took though. Im just know hitting a stride with mma. learning fighters and stuff like that. i would like to gve it a shot though. Always watched just didnt get into it seriously till now.
Been watching Gina Carano fights to. She is a badass id lke to see her fight that Cyborg chick.
Anyways Thanks Dave. Good to you as well if you do decide to do it.

DeanSinn 01-02-2009 04:13 PM

Hell ya.
The training begins. My gf got me a punching bag so know i can really start working on cardio and stuff so if i do wanna go into mma stuff ill have some conditioning and can increase my speed and shit...haha
I LOVE THIS.

im a pro wrestlers and i have a freind in mma,and he wonders how i do it lol if your thinking about getting into prowrestling look up the facts first cause you might not know what your getting into no matter how hard you have heard it is your not even close dont get me wrong its amazing and the feeling is WOW but you have to train yourself to the limit and then further ,it is by far the most tiring thing you will ever do,and when you go to a school theres a reason the first month is mostly conditioning you gotta be willing to push yourself so hard dude and you can take alot of pain wrestling is far from fake its just staged and sometimes your pretty much fighting cause some guys beat the piss out of ya lol,but like i said most relize it in wrestling school if you got what it takes most dont make it through the first week that havent completly prepared themselves both mentaly and physically unless you have already been though it cause you said you have training,but like i said theres nothing like it and if its really what u want to do ull just know it trust me:weights: and 27 isnt superbad but if your planing on trying to make it big you got many years ahead of you and 27 is kinda up there i went pro at 20
