Cardio.

you need shit-tons of stamina. also have you ever fought someone who can really fight? The first time I fought in cage I thought I was the shit fresh out of the Marines with a degree in business. My first fight of the night was against this really ripped construction worker with very little fighting experience and I had a huge reach advantage, needless to say the fight was stopped mid first round. My second fight of the night I was matched for a guy who dropped out so I got a -Pass- come into the cage with unbelievable arrogance this guy I was fighting was in the ring by mistake. He hit me, the first guy to ever really hit me with a rocking punch all of the sudden my cardio meant nothing my fighting experience meant nothing it all went away. He climbed on top and the ref stopped the fight shortly after, or so my friends told me, i dont remember. Keep your head down, your fists up and your arrogance leveled.

A definate case where I hope people don't look at his Rep meter as being an indication of how factual and correct his advice is... its just scary

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.
That is very very very true.

And you don't need to train with a gym to compete. I entered my first submission grappling tournament with four months of experience of rolling around with friends(some of who actually fight) and watching instructionals. I went 4-1 that night.

And bro, if you are basically a wrestler, I'd suggest working on guard passes, avoiding submissions(instead of trying to learn some of your own) and ground and pound. Also work on using striking to set up your shots, but I guess it is too late to get all that in now. Good luck bro. Be calm and collected, breathe easy and look to inflict damage.

you have to figure out why your doing this.

and dont give some BS answer really think about it and be honest.

Your and your friend thing you guys will be cool? your and your wrestling buddies think you can start a new fight team, get all the ladies and all that?

That might not be your reason but what im saying is i would never put myself in a ring to loose, yes anyone CAN loose but you need to make sure that if you do its because the guy was just a all around better fighter OR better that day.

I have been training for awhile now i have coaches and trainers and guess what? they dont decide when i fight, i do because i want to win or at least go out with such a good fight people want me back.

i think personally you COULD win this fight but it will not be impressive more like luck, and why would you want that? You NEED to be ready and you NEED to do it right so you can go in there and look the part. My friend from my gym had his first fight against someone just like, you. They are called "independents" they have no fight team nor gym they just watch it and teach themselves and go for it, and believe me my friend kick his ass, you could tell this guy was just waiting for the fight to end, and after, he put all sorts of images on his website bragging saying oh here im going for an armbar or here i was about to do this, blah blah blah.

See thats all he wanted out of it, but what do you want?

because if you want to fight for a lone time, and do it right then you need to back out of this fight, find yourself a coach and gym and try again it about a year.

Im all for people fighting i love this sport an ill help anyone i can but one thing i canst stand is people that do it half ass just so that can say that they did it. Whats the point?

Good luck and i hope you take some of our advice.

very well said and i agree 100% thats why im doing this to prove something to myself, not anyone else.. not to try and show off nothing but to prove to myself i have what it takes to do anything i set my mind to.

and hell, if i lose ill just go at it harder and harder

Good luck bro, and hats off to you. You're what I call a born fighter.
No, you need coaches so you can continue to get better... Look at the only UFC fighter I can think of that doesn't use a coach; Travis Lutter.
