It's hard to prepare for MMA training because (a) if you're not working with the sort of resistance that comes with grappling, that's going to be a huge new experience, and (b) gyms often have very particular training programs that are hard to prepare for, intentionally.

I think just generally working on conditioning is the best idea. Get a good run in. [Don't just jog; there's a lot to be said for the importance of interval training and explosiveness above just sort of general cardio. Run some stairs or something.] Try doing 30 or 40 burpees. Try doing 50 pushups. Depending on how easy that is for you, fluctuate the numbers some, but that's a good minimum for substantive MMA training.
