Heheheh yeah I do work out the core, I do weighted crunches, bicycles, planks, and the ab roller. Although the ab roller kinda hurts my lower back :\

I got a kettlebell for Christmas but it only weights 10 pounds, so really the only decent workout I can get out of it are shoulder exercises.

Other than that I do (in this order) dumbbell bench press, lat pulldowns, seated rows, tricep pulldowns, that one behind the back dumbbell tricep exercise, hammer curls, seated quad curls, hamstring curls, and of course the little grip strengthener thingy. Throw in the perfect pushup and 3 rounds of bagwork and that's a day for me.

Man, you're in need for a new work out program!

Here are a few things to try.

1) Punch Through the Target. Don't stop at the mitt, go all the way through

2) Do Shadow Boxing with Resistance Tubing

3) Pick up a tire from a junk yard and buy a 15 pound sledgehammer and hit the tire. 4 sets of 20 with each arm

4) Get a Medicine Ball and throw it against a wall until you fatigue. After you throw you can mix it up and do sprawls in between

5) Buy some weighted bag gloves like these

6) and the most obvious, Practice, Practice, Practice

Your workouts seem to be more along the lines of Bodybuilding than MMA. Lifting for MMA is for endurance and cardiovascular rather than size.

Yeah but I'm 128 lbs., I thought I needed size.

Ok numbers 1, 4, and 6 I definitely agree with. But numbers 2 and 5, I hear it isn't good to practice with weighed/slowed down hands because punching is all the fast snapping motion. And I don't necessarily have a problem with number 3, actually I've always wanted to try it, but where the heck am I gonna store a tire and sledgehammer in my dorm with 5 other roommates? I barely have any space as it is. :\

Also strength. I think MMA fighters should be lifting for strength, speed, explosiveness, and endurance.

Thats true to an extent.

For example when I train and I'm sure this is true with a lot of people. When I spar and hit the heavy bag. I don't use 4oz UFC gloves or 8-12 oz boxing gloves. I use 16-18oz gloves.

It builds speed and power. You'd be amazed that after you hit the bag with weighted gloves for 5 minutes and then take them off and put on 4oz gloves how fast you're hands will fly.

Anyway. Do what you like man. I'm just letting you know everything I listed is Tested and True. I still do it myself

Also do you train at home?

Because if you do train at a gym take the tire and hammer there.

Well I'm training at home for 5 weeks, because I'm on winter break. For the majority of the year, I'm at my college apartment. My house has a small gym in it, with dumbbells and the machine that I do my lat pulldowns, rows, etc. That's where I'm working out at now.

Oh, I train Muay Thai here back home with a physical trainer in a small gym, private lessons. At college, I haven't found a gym yet.
