    Ideally, by finding a good MMA school to train with – they’ll be able to point you in the right direction when it comes to fights. Sponsors are something to look for a few fights down the road, i would think.

    Hi Rosi,

    Thanks for the reply!

    As far as a school goes, I’ve been doing judo for 11 years and have recently added Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu to my training.

    I was hoping someone would have some info on how to get in contact with fight promoters and stuff like that!

    Sounds like you’ve got a good base for your training.

    I would still recommend trying to hook up with an MMA school, however. Firstly, because MMA is more than striking plus takedowns plus groundwork… a lot of the skill comes in combining the elements. But perhaps more importantly, it helps to have someone who knows the MMA scene to point you in the right direction. It’s also easier to find fights if you’re part of an established team that already has links with promotions and can put you forward.

    At the very least, I’d suggest trying to find a manager who can get in touch with promoters and handle the negotiations for you. Fighters are always at a disadvantage in trying to deal with promoters directly, especially when you’re not familiar with the scene.

    I’m sure there are people on here who can suggest contacts for schools and/or managers who could help you out.

    watch a lot of ufc and pride dvds

    then go to home depot, get some supplies, and build a woodshed in your backyard

    then practice your ass off in the woodshed

    that’s how rich franklin became a champion

    Great questions! I cannot tell you how important it is to have a good manager. Most trainers are good for training you but do not understand how to get sponsors or even a good payday! Most managers want a % which is great for you because the more they get the more you make!

    If anyone is interested in being managed e mail me

    Thanks for the replies everyone!

    I live in a condo so… no backyard wood shed for me lol. i do have a garage though. i was thinking about getting a punch bag in there so i can practise at home to supliment my training at the clubs.

    chad… do you have a lot of management experience? do you have a website?

    thanks again for the replies!
