Nutrition to lose weight and prepare for mma training?

I'm about 240 lbs. and 20 years old. I want to drop down to atleast 210-215 before I start mma training. I want to build strength and lean mass. I've been working out for awhile and am pretty strong. I have a real good muscle build now. But I'd like to have a more lean look then bulky. I plan on training for about a year before fighting and want to fight at a soild 185 or 205. If you guys could give me some pointers on which kinda food I should eat and maybe a few supplements to take it would be helpful.

First...How tall are you? 5'9"-6'0"?

Second, honestly man. Why not go ahead and start training. The best way to condition yourself for MMA is...you guessed it, to train MMA (whether that aspect is Muay Thai, catch wrestling, Jiu Jitsu, Judo, blah blah blah).

A training partner of mine did exactly that, did it every day, did some interval training (about 3 times a week) and dropped about 30-35 pounds in about 6 weeks. He was very strict on his diet so those results aren't typical. But that's my opinion. Just remember, everyone was a 'greenhorn'/beginner at one point. Some guys may not remember that, or be outwardly expressive about such, but many should be able to help out. Diet wise, not sure of your body type other than that basic stats you gave us, but eat a lower carb diet, higher protein and start there. You may want to look up the high-low-low-high-low-low carb/diet scheme on some various sites. I have heard great things about such scheme doing great things.

Eating higher protein food mushed up is supposed to help to lose weight. I'm trying to reduce my insulin to try and push my appetite down as well.
