A cage fighter is another term for a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. To get started, gain proficiency in at least one martial arts field, and familiarize yourself with others. Train regularly and adopt a healthy diet to strengthen your body. After at least six months of regular training, sign up for a cage fighting tournament. Becoming an MMA fighter takes a significant investment of time and energy, but there are few victories more exciting and well-earned than those in the cage.
