I know that the recent trend (Diaz, Diego) is to fight on grass but fighing on marijuana can cloud your judgment & cause you to gas early. You may also experience happy, peaceful thoughts at a time when you'll need to focus more on your aggression.
Good Luck- take him down & choke him out.

Crazy

A week and a half?

Theres just no time to get your cardio improved. For that matter your skills cant be improved a whole lot either.

I read alot of lay and pray advice and for once I cringe at myself for agreeing with that technique.

In the future if you plan to fight more you can do it without a gym. You do need to come up with a training regime that will help you. Get a partner to train with you and do rotations of wrestling, grapling, boxing, and submisions. Do 30 minutes of each on your first rotation then cut it to 15, 10 and 5. Only break for 5 minutes between roations and 30 seconds between skills. For cardio do the wind sprints and if you can swim laps in a pool. The cardio will also come from the rotations.

Since you don't have 8 to 12 weeks to prepare, spend the rest of your time in the gym and not on the forums. Take a minimum of a 3 day break before the night of the fight. Other than that, good luck. There really isn't anything I can offer you besides that.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

he'll probably try to stand up and knock you out so your best chance is to take him down and try to get his back. Easiest and one of the most effective submissions = rear naked choke.....good luck bro

This post gets my vote for the most "WTF" expression I've yet had on my face while reading a post on this forum.

Second of all:
To be honest, this sounds like you are going to be in for a rough experience. The guy has been doing MT and boxing for 2 years? And all you have is HS wrestling, so its a pretty uneven match. My advice, be the agressor, measure him for a bit, then explode and go for a takedown and overwhelm him. Gotta say, you're pretty ballsy

avoid the clinch set up a one, two combo and shoot it for a takedown.
On second thought if you have no experience i'd say don't take the fight. You don't want to risk getting seriously injured and look like an idiot in the process.

ya actually i did think about not taking it and waiting. but i already told quite a few people the date ill be fighting and i dont want to have to explain to them that im scared of losing so i backed out. plus i know the guy im fighting and hes just not much of the agressor type. im pretty sure i wont have to work hard to get him down. ive kept my wrestling/grappling pretty sharp. so i have a significant advantage on the ground.
