HELP! on first fight

I need some advice on how to prepare. I have my first mma fight coming up on the 22nd. which leaves me like a week and a half. very short notice. I dont train, most i have is high school wrestling a year and a half ago. Im around 205 6'. Any advice on what i can do in the next week and a half to get the most out of my fight? thanks

So thats him
I say get a takedown quick dont put him in a clinch since he has good MT. Unless u can use the Ropes/Cage no clinch.
Dont get cocky and standup with him.
Y do u not have a gym

So, no formal jiu jitsu, muy thai, boxing, and no experience in a regulated fight?
I suggested training with a gym.

How'd you get a fight with no gym?

I vote for a takedown, then if you have any, work a sub.

Fav fighters
Tito Ortiz
Frank Shamrock
Aleksander Emelianenko
Fedor Emelianenko
Shogun
Phil Baroni

Rep me + and I will return the favor.
