well guys i appreciate your tips to not take the fight yet and i agree i may not be ready but this fight will help me learn and you only learn from realtime experience imo, my dads friend that used to fight 2 years ago ( they work together ) is coming over twice a week to help me with my submissions and escaping them hes a black belt in bjj so far ive learned a pretty good armbar as well as the kimura ( sp? ) also the " triangle " and ive been practicing those with my brother that is also fighting ( its his 2nd fight, won his first )

so i hope i can pull out a win but even if i dont it wont effect my goals

I do not think you are ready at all. Let me know if you are versed in submissions and if you have boxed with some good stand-up guys up to this point.

You should not turn to an online forum for training-diet and fighting advice. YOU NEED A COACH!

You could still win but it's best to be fully prepared.

Where do you live and where is this fight?
i live near wheeling, WV and the fight is in pittsburgh, pa

It should be a law that BJJBoy isn't allowed to give advice, lol. Usually when I read his posts, he has no clue on what he's doing.

You know what man? You seriously need some respect for doing what you're doing. Win or lose, you got there by yourself. That's serious work ethic. Keep at it man, you'll get there one day...it all comes down to how you train...you can do that without a coach, as long as you know what you're doing and can push yourself (most people need someone there to push them).

Good luck bro, and hats off to you. You're what I call a born fighter.

CARDIO!!! everyone needs it no matter what your style. You should really get your miles up with the running. I normally run no less than 3.5 miles and I still think i need to improve my cardio before i get into a cage. Eat tuna, high protein low calories and the fat in it is the type of fat your body needs. (unlike the fat in twinkies) Do some hill work, sprints, and squats.
