first thing you should do is type correctly. Based on your typing skills, i am assuming you also speak that way....

you should hit up dana white on twitter with the same message you left here...you should have a great shot, since you hit da gym almost everyday.

Best way to start: work on the patented steel chair to the back of the opponent.

What?

Oh, MMA?

Never mind.

You can start by punching yourself in the face to make sure you can take a punch. And then try to break a finger or 2 to see if you can deal with the pain.
That's a start.

Fo real how can i get on a ppv?

They usually need guys to clean the place before and afterwards.

Seriously, are you dumb or playing?

OK son, you want us to talk straight? Let's start.
1) clean up your act. Learn to write and talk.
This is a business. No one will look at you until you can talk to the fans. And you can't talk to the fans same as your "pseudo-ghetto" crap.
2) Go to a gym and learn how to fight properly.
Unless you want to follow Kimbo and first get famous for brawls, then you need more than talk.
3) Get noticed.
Contact proper organizations/promotions and try to get a contract.

The rest is just a natural progression.
But in your case, i would first and foremost go for the #1. it might help you not just with MMA, but with the rest of your life.

Get into a BJJ school, learn some Muay Thai, and after about 4 months you will be in the cage impressing the bitches.

Good luck.

Win 5 amateur fights, 10 pro fights, and never lose. You could get on a prelim that way.

It's also a case of getting into the right camp.

Some camps get their fighters quickly on the big stage (AKA, Greg Jackson's; Chute Boxe and BTT in the past, etc).

Agreed. Do all of the above and train full time at Chute Boxe.

Do all of this if you want on a PPV superior2Uson.

Ahh, how I miss the Brazilian Top Team in its prime. Nogs, Sperry, Bustamante, Vitor, and Arona? It must have been a crazy camp.

I always rooted for BTT against Chute Boxe (and against just anyone else, for that matter).

But I think watching a Chute Boxe sparring session back in the day would have been something. Wanderlei, Shogun, Pele, Anderson Silva, Ninja... going at it full steam? Man...
