First post, first fight
What is going on everybody?. My name is Marco and i am from Costa Rica( pretty far away from the bullshido HQ). I have been a practicioner of martial arts since i was 6 years old, and i am recently contemplating booking my first fight(vale tudo). This fight is gonna be for pure fun, i WILL NOT FIGHT FOR A LIVING!!
I wanted to ask for advice(especially the forerunners and the vets), should i drop lifting weights?, should i practice more grappling, striking?, should i fight at welter weight or at light weight(being 5"9)?, should i be scared?. Thank my fellow bullshidos!!
Welcome to Bullshido.

Better take the fight seriously or you will lose and possibly get injured. What is your training regime now? do you have a good trainer that prepares you to the fight? When is the fight. Better give way more details if you want any answers. Like your training schedule, your MA background where you train etc.
All the best.
