mma beginner's help

hey guys, i just started pad drills for the first time last week and i seem to have difficulty throwing in my combos because im getting hit first then i gotta back off and start over. I did hit my opponent a couple of times but mostly i was getting hit. I haven't learnt any combos besides one, so my question is Is there a list of combos i could throw to my opponent the moment i cross the line?

thanks guys

I think after plenty of sparring sessions you'll become more fluent with combos. If you're getting hit, work on slipping punches. Stand up and MMA in general is very dynamic. I'll throw a certain combo when I feel it's the right time it's executed. It's what makes the best fighters in the world the best fighters, precise timing and perfect execution.

Keep working the pads, focus mitts, and sparring. It'll come together. It doesn't make sense to say to yourself before you fight/spar, "well I'm going to do a jab, cross, hook" just like you don't roll in jiu jitsu telling yourself, "I'm going to triangle this guy." You just have to flow with it.
