    just because you get paid doesn't make you pro. You get paid for am. fights too, just not as much

    I thought it was illegal to get payed a monetary award (money) for amateur fights. Maybe it doesn't apply to amateur MMA?

    If you get paid for a fight, you're a pro forever, no going back. The only difference between amateurs and pros is that pros get paid. It's not like you have to be good or anything, just find a small enough organization willing to let you fight pro and bam, you're a professional fighter.

    Amatuer, by it's very defnition means you don't get paid (maybe expenses but not a purse).

    In the UK the scene is set up around three rule sets which are called amatuer, semi-pro and pro rules.

    In amatuer rules there is no striking to the head at all.

    In Semi-Pro rules it's full MMA during the stand up but once the fight hit's the floor then the head is no longer an available target.

    Pro rules are UFC rules.

    Confusingly some prompters will pay amatuers a purse, which is retarded.

    I don't know if the same distinction is used in Canada at all but it is fairly common throughout Europe.

    I may be incorrect, but i'm fairly certain in the states ams get paid. I'll ask my coach. I think ams only get paid if they win, though.

    I thought that pro meant you were earning enough to make a living off it. As in professionally, the actual meaning of the word.

    i miss your awesomely bad ass g-d armbar avatar :(

    And i'm not sure. I'm no where near ready for my first mma fight. I e-mailed my coach though.

    I think pro, you get more fights, though.

    Or maybe pro means your contracted or something...i don't know man, i just don't know!
