    What is required to be an MMA fighter, assuming you have no martial arts experience?

    Lets assume a complete noob wants to become an MMA fighter. What will they need in order to join the UFC?

    Do they have to learn complicated martial arts or can the just learn kickboxing and wrestling?

    Start Taichi, Aikido or if you can use Kiai attacks. Use the mythic powers those arts instill into you to absolutely demolish every pro-MMA-fighter in your wake.

    Not caring about facial aesthetics is probably the first prerequisite.

    Lol, kickboxing and wrestling aren’t complicated?

    Go to your local bjj gym and roll with anyone not wearing a white belt around their waist. Then know they have all been doing that for at least a few years. Until you can comfortably control them, stick to CrossFit.
