Concerning Amateur Reinstatement

Ok, Ive heard rumors and all that so im here to get things straight….

Is one able to get their amateur fight status reinstated? I had mistakenly went pro when I was personally not ready for it….. long story short, i took a fight I thought was an amateur event (HeatXC, i didnt know anything of this organization at the time) and didnt find out it was a professional bout until I got there… and so, i took it, after all, I had traveled there and everything already….

anyway, any light shed on this would help…..

No excuses with Heynen. He was a better fighter.

I'm quite sure there was no amateur mma in Edmonton when you fought in HeatXC. Also HeatXC was an all pro card, you and your team/friends signed contracts to fight on the show. I don't really understand.

I remember you guys being so excited that you had managed to get on a HeatXC show due its affiliation to MFC.


I just see this a a bit of a strange post overall.

^Definitly would have stated on the contract that it was a pro fight…Also, your two pro fights were now over a year ago proper training would mena if weren't ready then, you should be by now. If not, I don't think you should get placed on amateur status, if you need more experience jump into the many amateur options in boxing, kickboxing and grappling tourneys to help round out your game. once you've put in the time, there are plenty of other fighters out there with losing records similar to yours 0-1, 0-2, 0-3 that you can test your game against in a fair match-up.

And like i said, I didnt know it was a Pro fight until I got there. And i didnt sign anything until I got there, i took the fight 3 days notice. But yeah thanks.
