New to MMA

Hi, I'm Tyler I'm 16 years old and I'm fairly new to MMA, well besides watching UFC, PRIDE, Dream, WEC etc. I was wondering if there is anything I should know before or I start at this martial arts gym near where I live. The gym offers an MMA class. I also have a little bit of background in wrestling, I wrestled for 2 years in school, I had a record of 20-2. So any tips for me? Thanks, it will be greatly appreciated.

im fairly new to mma training myself, and the thing i found that helped me when i started was having pretty decent cardio conditioning, and when sparring give it as hard as youre getting it lol, also i found that having a lil basic knowledge when starting bjj helps aswell, only done 3 lessons, but i read up on a few submissions, guards, and escapes before i went, good luck
