    No one knows the answer to that question better than you do brother. If you're really unsure, try getting advice from coaches/people that have worked with you. If all else fails, it wouldn't hurt to try out some amateur bouts if you think you're up for it.

    If he started eye poking and running over pregnant ladies you’d probably consider him an ATG in the making.

    How skilled is 'skilled' when it comes to boxing & judo? If your boxing is good enough to get you on the podium in a state golden gloves tournament, and you're a competitive black belt in judo, then you could start winning amateur mma fights pretty soon.

    But if you only have a year or two of boxing and a couple years of judo, then it will take longer, although both will still give you an edge over the average palooka walking into an mma gym with no background at all.

    19 is young enough to still get pretty good, assuming you get good coaching and you are extremely devoted.

    If you have to ask this question on an online forum then the answer to your question is no.

    Have you looked at MMA gyms in your area? Boxing and judo are both good, have you trained any wrestling?

    The way i see it, anything you want you can be it. If you heart really believe it and your mind can perceive it then you half way there, and all you gotta do is do it and if you give it all you got there aint really nothing to it.

    You will endure lots of injuries like face cuts, cte, broken bones, eye damages etc etc, ask yourself not can you be an mma fighter, but can you be an mma fighter who wins against a champion level fighter. Otherwise your doing it for the hell of it. and its not worth it if your just gonna be some guy in an undercard getting paid to bleed for drunks.

    Fighters are a lot like strippers. One of the most important criteria is are you willing to do it?
