Any one know how i could get involved in MMA as I live in England.My ultimate goal is to be in the UFC. I do Boxing at the moment but have done kickboxing and am skilled at ground fighting mainly due to learning braz jj. Know a bit of judo to of my cousin who was former british champion. What martial do u think is best to learn for mma.

THere are many MMA schools now so if I were you I would find one of those instead of only training one discipline. You should be able to find one in the phone book or internet.
i got a friend who competes and he travels to England to fight so there are places to learn

I'm sure there are some local promoters in England you can track down somehow. Try to find some local MMA shows and talk to the promoter and see if they can get you some amateur fights at their shows. I think a lot of people think they can just jump into the pros and fight, but it doesn't happen that way. You need to build an amateur career first before you'll get a fight with a pro for some money.
