I was wondering how long it takes for someone new to the sport of mma to start competing in amateur mma events. I know that there are several factors that would go into it but just an estimate for when it would be acceptable to try it. I have been training jui jitsu for about 2 months and don't have any prior wrestling experience. I did some martial arts as a teenager for about 2 years. I am 6'5 and weigh 220. My guess is 1-2 years. Anybody have any ideas or know someone that has done it sooner. I want to set some goals for myself and just want to be realistic.
