MMA advice for a beginner

Hello, i am new here(first post)

i am 240-245 pounds... not sure BF percent... the online one says 18.5 but i think more like 20-21 i am getting it checked on tuesday...goal is 205 at 8-9 percent

anyways, i started lifting again, i did amateur power lifting years ago and just got back into it recently

i just joined an MMA gym and i would like to lean out at around 200-205 and compete in light heavy weight

when i was younger i was a state level wrestler and placed 1st and 2nd in a few state and county tournaments.(about the only thing that may be of some use to me)

other than that i am pretty much a beginner in everything and would like some advice on what to practice etc...

i would like some advice on what classes to take and what to do on off days from classes

they offer BJJ, Kickboxing, MMA, and Boxing i was considering doing one kick boxing one bjj and one boxing class each week for now or 2 BJJ and one kickboxing or boxing

and what should i do on my off days, at least one of the days i will be working with a professional strength coach if he accepts me into his program

thank you!

you gota have some good knowllege on all styles of fighting, cause even if you do not specialize in some of them , you will need to know what to expect from an opponent who does specialize in that style.
Its good that you have a wrestling base, but i advise that you try and perfect that and make it your primary style as it is a very good one to have, as long as your wrestling is good u dont have to worry too much about ur BJJ but you should go a few times to learn how to avoid getting caught out.

i advise you learn boxing aswell, i would say kickboxing but if ur a weight lifter u may not be very flexible so its best to concentrate on ur punches more
