At the gym a normal workout is:
-Bench press- 45lb-60lb 3-5sets of 10
-Curl- 65(not individual weights) 3-5sets of 10
-some other random machines
-and run for 15minutes

I am wondering what fighting technique and work outs I can do to make me stronger. and remember i am a Newb so im not familiar with alot of terms. Thanks in advance.
Smokelaw gave you some great advice.

Lean protein, complex carbs, try not to drink your calories unless it's milk b/c you're probably still growing.

MORE CARDIO.

If you have trouble going for long period of sustained cardio, interval cardio will burn fat but you have to be conscientious about your diet, as it's so much easier to consume than expend.

You may be overweight, but that does not stop you from learning.

"IF" Money is an issue, youtube video's of BJJ moves, etc, etc. If not, take a class. (Class will help you lose weight also due to exercises)

Go to the gym as much as you can, I recomend you do a controlled cycle. (Cardio one day, Upper body, Lower body, etc)

Also, School wrestling is a pretty effective technique. but it does have bad habits. (Like rolling to your stomach) so you'll have to learn what to kick out.

Try a few different things, see what you like.

Weight-drop and fight cardio can come from taking a martial arts class. Definitely work the muscles more, whether through isometric body training or through weight-lifting, whichever you prefer.

Once you have some skills built up, sparring is absolutely key. It gives you a real-life use for the mess of crap you learn in class and it feels really good the first time you slug a friend in the face with an upward elbow!

Nutrition is crazy important. Protein is absolutely the most important, Complex protein because it actually produces more protein molecules in the muscles over time. Just cuz a McDonalds doube cheese has 50grams of protein doesn't mean a damn thing because there's so much fat in it you're wasting your time. Compex-carbs are a big help as well and depending on the variety of protein intake are key to activating the complex proteins.

Remember MAD CARDIO!
At all times perform cardio. If you have to walk to the store, run there. If your school is only a few miles from home, run there. Even if you can't do it all at once, run in spurts. It burns fat and builds endurance.
Anyone with the motivation and drive can fight. Hell when I was in high school I weighed 300lbs. Now Im 202 and lean. It takes time and effort but is more than possible.
