Need advice on my workout schedule

i have been using strength lifts 5x5 and got up to week 7-8 but stopped and started a hybrid workout i made based of SL 5x5. I want to know if theres any workouts i should remove or add to be more effecient and gain more muscle/lose fat. My goal is to tighten up my body.

(i also have a knee injury from the miltary and cant squat over 170 pounds)

heres what i got.

mon/wed/fri

squats - 150 pounds
leg curls - 75
bench press - 150
over head press - 125
arm curl - 100
chin ups - 137.5
pull ups - 137.5
sit ups - 3x12 +25 pounds
dead lift - 220
ab crunch front & sides - 3x12 + 100 pounds

also i could really use some good cardio/conditioning tips or workouts.

thanks in advance for the help.

Are you trying to train strength and conditioning specifically for mma or just to get in shape and look good?

I noticed you said your goal was to build more muscle/lose fat and tighten up your body. If that's the case, the 5x5 is a good system (though it is best used to build strength quickly), but if you are trying to make your strength and conditioning mma specific your going to need to eventually add some power exercises and work on your strength/power endurance.
