First Amateur Fight

Alright so my first amateur fight is in 10 days. I have no experience whatsoever except training at my home and studying ufc fight videos.

I've never been to a gym, never sparred with anyone i've only been in 1 street fight. So im not very experienced. Im gonna be fighting at 155 and im 5'11 and 19 years old...I have real heavy hands but im not that great at striking..I wrestled in highschool for about a year and I know most submissions in the game....my cardio isn't where I want it to be because i took the fight on 20 days notice....so i'll probably gas at the end of the first round.

Anyone have any advice for me?? =] thanks

Yeah. Get out of the fight now. You're clearly not prepared and you know it.

If you have no training, you really have no business fighting. If you feel like you're out of shape, then you need to fix that before you start talking about taking a fight.

If you take the fight, good luck. But, really, don't.

Also, I'm moving this thread to the training forums.

You asked a question about fight prep, so I moved it to the forum where all of the guys who fight hang out.

In that case, stay in the fight. I have a feeling you being punched in the head a bunch of times won't really affect you much.

Also, make sure to get completely trashed before you go in.

Because there's a chance you could be seriously and irreparably injured, and most of us don't want that.

Without training, MMA become exponentially more dangerous. (do does boxing, football, hockey, and any other sport with a certain degree of contact) This is especially true if your opponent has training.

I did a grappling tournament hung over once. Bad times.

Thanks man, but against another amateur with 0-0 record it can't be that dangerous? Hopefully its a good ref so I dont

Some of the toughest guys I've fought have been making their debuts.

Just because he's not active doesn't mean he's not good, and doesn't mean he's not experienced with the mat time.

Does he have a boxing record? Jiu-jitsu background? Wrestling championships? Muay thai or TKD skills?

If you don't know, then there's reason to be worried.
