Like everyone else said - Cardio! It's key.

Really you need a coach, someone who has fought before. A good coach can really keep your head in the right place even when it doesn't want to be there.

If you have a good ground game just try and get enough striking/boxing to keep yourself from getting knocked out. Learn how to hold you shoulder, head and the right way to move and keep good angles.

As much as people like ground game there is nothing like the feel of someones jaw breaking on your fist. Get that striking game up!

Train hard and you should do well. Also just running isn't enough for cardio. When I started BJJ I ran 1/2 marathons from time to time but got gased within 5 minutes of rolling/striking.

Lastly make sure you don't kill yourself cutting weight. Chart your progress everyday and tailor your diet accordingly. Try and eat as much whole natural foods as possible. A good nutritionist can go a long way.


Report back on your progress I am curious to see how you do. I got a fight comming up in 4 months - I still need to drop 35LBS for... ugh...

dude i hate to break it to you but my guess is your going to get submitted...let me put it to you this way...i am a fighter. i fight for Team Lloyd Irvin in Camp Springs MD. i was also a great wrestler...place 6th in the state. i too have been fighting pretty much all my life and had the same attitude as you..that changed real quick once i rolled with a bjj purple belt...aka RYAN HALL! i pretty much got my ass kicked. so my guess is this is going to happen to you. I have been training in bjj/muay thai for a year and wrestling for 6 years now and i still have not had my first fight. i plan to in september but i think you should really get someone to coach you for at least 1 year before you get in the cage. IN FACT Lloyd Irvin wont let me fight yet, not cause i am not in shape or anything in fact i would say i am in perfect shape, but you really have to get your mindset in gear. Please film this fight so i can watch your mistake! Good luck though!

You can't compare Ryan Hall to a first amateur MMA fight. Ryan Hall has like 146 triangle wins in competition, and is an experienced bjj artist. Tthe majority of competition in amateur MMA is worse than anywhere else, because anyone can basically fight.




What a stud

No offence but that's a horrible diet. I hope you are joking around here.

You need to eat many times a day (5-8 usually works) and get your metabolism high. This will give you more energy, strength and general higher level of fitness. Also include about 150-200oz of ice water into that.

I am 6'1" 205 and eat about 3500 calories a day spread throughout the day. I just had a huge drop in weight 10 pounds in a week doing this and my strength/cardio is rediculously good right now.

If I ate two meals a day I might lose some weight at first but I would stall soon and have no energy.

Please please do not eat like that.

You get a big mixed bag of skill on low ranked MMA fighters. My first fight was litterally someone pulled out of the audience (yes he was a fighter) but he was not ready for the fight. He gased within a few minutes and not long after the fight was over.

But then again I train with people who still have not had their first fight who I know I couldn't hold my own against.

It's all a crap shoot.

I told him what i do... My way works..

How can it be a horrible diet if it works.

Of course youll be allot weaker, but you still lose allot of weight.
