Could i ever be a UFC fighter?
Looks like i'm heading downhill with this thing called life and i have zero idea what i'm gonna do with myself. I'm a smart kid, with a good heart and lots of motivation but i really don't feel like suffering for 6+ years of my life to go to college and work my ass off. One thing i'm good at is fighting. I'm constantly fighting and i have a street fighting record of 36-2, i randomly tally them up every time i get in a fight. (i don't go around starting shit) and i've lived in some pretty rough neighborhoods. I'm impossible to knock out and have an ungodly temper and take things to the next level. I'm not a real big dude. only 5'8" and 145 lbs, but i'll straight rip somebodies eyes out and choke them til they die. I don't care. People tell me i'd be good at the sport, and i have an interest in it, i've got some wrestling and muay thai experience. I don't exactly expect to be fighting brock lesnar, cuz i'll probably never be above lightweight. So i wouldn't say i'd get smashed opinions? Let's keep sarcasm to a minimum if there is any.

you never know till you try. find your local gym and start learning and sparring without letting your temper get in the way cause that will make you lose technique and get tossed around and beat by trained guys

Take as many martial arts classes you can, through instructors at a ju-jitsu school you could easily enter tournaments where recruiters for sport fighting hang out.. get in the gym and work out hard and take ju-jitsu and kickboxing and you might have a chance. Sounds like your probably already a good striker with... More

Like someone else said, you will never know until you try in a competition. Just remember there are rules and you need to keep your temper under control.

If you don't have the discipline needed to go to college what makes you think you have the discipline needed to train and compete in MMA? Street fighting means nothing. Look at Kimbo he beat just about every bum on the street. But when he had to face even a mediocre trained fighter, get got his ass kicked.

I am going to say no. You have the wrong attitude, you fight on the streets, you dont seem to understand the weight classes or have any real training, you fight using your temper which will leave you unconscious against any decent mma fighter and you asked if you could be a "UFC Fighter" like when you compete in mma...
