I see threads about how the UG is dying so I thought I’d take it back and ask how everyone got here in the first place.
I found out after I watched an event and was mesmerized by it. I had been competing in boxing since 12 but, mma was a whole new thing. I actually sent a Facebook message to Aljamain Sterling since he lived the closest to where I was (Rochester, NY) training at team bombsquad and asked how he got started. He told me to find a gym and check this place out for amateur events.
