Thumbs up

whoever said stick with what you're comfortable with

No time to learn new things. Keep your cardio UP and stay on the ground if this is what you're used to. Tire him to death by keeping him on the mat, its very draining, physically and mentally if the guy cant get off his back. Win a decision, it might be a boring fight but a win is a win.

Train hard and GOOD LUCK! let us know how it goes.

Yep, sticl with what you know, and don't give up. Keep pushing for a take down, be relentless. And don't be defensive... Be aggressive.

Do you know anything about your opponent? What's his experience and skill level? You're most likely going to get mauled but who cares, how bad can it be...I say you're a ballsy sonuvabitch for taking a fight without any training.

If all else fails speed-bag his nuts and take the DQ.

Good luck.

Honestly it sounds like your in over your head BUT since this is MMA you always have a chance. I'd hurry up and find someone to teach you some sub's before you get in the ring. Im sure you could find some sort of Dojo near you? You said you did wrestlng...if you did high school wrestling I suggest you try to get in contact with your coach.

If you feel you can stand up with him... TEST THE WATERS. Don't go in and throw with him if you can't handle what he is throwing back. Since you have wrestling backround, take him down. Pound him out, body and head (elbows can end fights quickly if they are delivered correctly). Don't even bother kicking. This is your first fight, so use anything you KNOW. Footstomps are annoying and painful... anyone can do them. Body shots take your wind, and can slow him down.

Just stay tough, and if you're in a submission, and feel you might tap... just tap, no sense in injuring yourself for the future since you don't know what you're doing.

Good luck man, that kid looks lame. I hope you win.

So let me get this straight, you got no mma experience what so ever? So, I'm guessing this fight wont be in an octagon nor will it be in a ring but on grass?
