First time posting here and looking for some advice on where i need to aiming. I am looking for an MMA weight class to settle on. I am reasonably educated about nutrition and workouts but i am unsure where i want to settle at and maintain.
To start with i will give some background. I am a former MARINE and when i was at my lowest weight i was 176 but was very weak i had little fat but also very little muscle and i hated how weak i felt. I started training with their MMA program they have and really enjoyed but sadly i suffered a bad knee injury and was shoved behind a desk and i regret to say i got VERY fat and lazy. Right now i am focused on dropping weight so that may get back to training as a hobby. I am a larger frame build and am looking for good weight to get to and maintain. I am thinking that i should be no lower than 205 as any lower would be very difficult for me to maintain strength. For my style preference i prefer Muay Thai for my stand up am decided on my ground game. Thank you guys very much for any assistance and advice!
