I'd start by doing a bit of running maybe but to be honest, the training in the MMA club will 'train' you so really, i'd just say get into it as soon as you can!!

It's hard to prepare for MMA training because (a) if you're not working with the sort of resistance that comes with grappling, that's going to be a huge new experience, and (b) gyms often have very particular training programs that are hard to prepare for, intentionally.

I think just generally working on conditioning is the best idea. Get a good run in. [Don't just jog; there's a lot to be said for the importance of interval training and explosiveness above just sort of general cardio. Run some stairs or something.] Try doing 30 or 40 burpees. Try doing 50 pushups. Depending on how easy that is for you, fluctuate the numbers some, but that's a good minimum for substantive MMA training.

I agree with Killz and Iron man. Conditioning is your best bet. At my first MMA training session, a few years ago, I gassed badly and quickly. I was almost vomiting at one point. Long distance running is almost pointless for MMA. The only use being it will strengthen your lungs somewhat. Running steps is perfect. Interval training, burpees, squats and lunges are all good too. Without a little conditioning your first few weeks are gonna be killer. Do you have any experience in martial arts? Wrestling or anything that might give you a leg up in terms of conditioning? If not, heed the advice given here and check out the training logs and tips on this forum. Everyone here is very helpful and accomodating so if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
