My only advice would be to stick with what you know. Dont try and go out there and swing if youre not really confident in your standup. If wrestling is what you know then get in close, take his ass down and control him best you can.

Just don't strike with him. That's most important.

You don't need a super fancy sub either. It's sorta a kimura, but like, (you should know what I'm talking about), grab the person's wrist and with the other hand, grab sorta around the ball of the elbow and push/pull inward towards the body. it's an easy, solid shoulder lock that might be worth using if you know how to do it.

If you're a wrestler, then get his ass on the ground, especially if he's got MT experience.

ya thats exactly the kind of stuff i know. nothing real fancy but basic arm manipulation i used in wrestling (not for submission but just to get the opponent where u want them) and a lot of it can easily be turned into a submission move. thanks!

If you want the almighty guide to submission,

let me let you in on a secret!

If you want to sub with w/e limb, just bend it the way it shouldn't be bent... nice 'n slow... for that sweet tappage!

That's great for burning fat too.

Distance running-
I know alot of people bash this, but the folks who do their running just don't gas. (wonder why) how to- fast jog/light run a good distance, start simple and work up to say, 5-7 miles

Wind sprints- take a say 40 yard distance, sprint as fast as you can, do like 3 sets of 10 sprints
Bring your knees to your chest for brownie points


Hill running-
Pretty obvious, run, jog up and down a hill for X minutes and Y distance

Stair climbing - how to- tear up and (be careful) down a few flights of stairs. Just be careful and don't fall or twist something

Jump rope- say 5 rounds, 3 minutes each or w/e you can do
Take something outta that.

Cardio won't due much if you can't last the duration of the fight.
Work on your fighting skills.

Yeah, you need to find someone to spar with. Get used to seeing punches come at you and get used to executing takedowns when he's punching. If you can spar that works as a good cardio boost at the same time. Wrestling will help you but you need to remember that some things that we (wrestlers) do get us into trouble in MMA ie, extending arms to grab opponent, leaving neck exposed while shooting, turning back to opponent, fear of turning back to the mat....
I'm not trying to bust on ya, I just want you to realize that even a guy with a few months BJJ and MT will have an advantage. So get on the mat and fight, thats how you train for a fight. Hope that helps!
