Swimming will help a lot. I find it more fun than running and it utilizes more muscles and when you are finished you can just relax in the water.

Good luck at your fight!

iron man drills in wrestling. If you don't know what that is have yourself in the center of a ring and have your partners wrestle you till you pen them or they pin you then have the next person go and have them continually rotate for a set amount of time.

No offense dude, but if your fight is in Dec, it's a little late to start on conditioning...

Nevertheless:

A trainer gave me a really good tip on getting your overall conditioning up especially when it comes to battling fatigue. It involves sprinting.

In the morning and afternoon do this drill:

Sprint your ass off for 20 seconds. Then jog for 30 seconds. Repeat 4 more times.

After at least 4-5 days, increase by 10 second intervals, but keep your jogging at only 30 seconds. After a few weeks you'll be sprinting for a minute and still going as fast on your fifth rep as you did on your first.

I'm a terrible runner and I found it did wonders for me especially when I spar. I got much less tired and felt very little aches the next day after training. The beauty of it? It takes very little time to complete, that's why you can do it twice a day.

Hmm. I've never done those but they do sound helpful and intense. Good advice.

if its a purely cardio workout your going for and you hate running mix it up.aim for say 2km rowing 2km running 2km bike and repeat.like with anything the more you put into it the more you get out of it.try cave man training aswell its insane and will make you wish you had`nt done it but it will turn you into an octagon fighting machine.good luck hit my blog to check some workouts.best to manipulate different aspects and form your own program coz every1s different.http://musclenowfatlater.blogspot.com/
