First, join a club that has pros as members, then you'll probably have to enter some local amatuer grappling/kickboxing/boxing/MMA (if there are any MMA tournies, if not, don't worry) tournaments. You will have to do this for at least a couple of years, and impress some of the people there, and the pros at your club. Then, when those pros hear about an event, or are asked to fight in one, and there happens to be an opening, they'll recommend you, and the promoter might trust them, or if he has seen you at an amatuer tourney and was impressed, you might be able to skip the recommendation from the pro.
Now, you must be as impressive as possible in your first pro match. After fighting in a few smaller shows, you might get an invite to something like KOTC or one of the other shows that are just below the UFC. If you are impressive there multiple times, the UFC or Pride might give you a shot.
Basically, the objective is to be as prepared as possible for each step up, because if you aren't, you'll waste a lot of time and effort, and get knocked down a couple steps on the ladder.
Keep in mind, I'm no professional, but I have watched several other people rise through the lower ranks. Although none of the people I know have ever competed in the UFC, they have competed in some decent smaller shows, and the pattern I described is how they got to the level they're at.

I dunno if he did, but someone else who looked at the thread may have.

I noticed on your profile that you're only 13. You've got a lot of waiting to do. Might as well do it training. Get into wrestling right away. During the offseason, train at a boxing gym - if you have one - and get some golden gloves bouts. Don't streetfight. There's no future in that. TKD's okay as long as you understand which techniques to absorb and which ones to discard.
