Not new to lifting but am having trouble creating a routine.Can I get some help?

First off here's a little information about me:

I'm a 27 year old Paramedic who's 5'8" and 235lbs and am roughly 25.2% bodyfat. Even though i've always been on the husky side i've always managed to stay active and participate in sports.

I just started training in MMA (BJJ, Judo, Kickboxing and Muay Thai) for about 3 weeks now. I train twice a week on average 3-4 hours each session.

My physical goal is to drop down to roughly around 180lbs of lean muscle mass.

My training goal is to increase my overall conditioning and endurance.

I am fine tuning my diet currently as I was on a Primal/Paleo diet but am thinking I need to increase my carb intake due to the training session. I plan to stick to fruits and veggies as my primary source of carbohydrates.

My training schedule looks like this:

Mon - ??
Tue - MMA
Wed - REST
Thur -??
Fri -??
Sat - MMA
Sun - Rest

I work 24 hour shifts so on wed/sun I do not train at all as I am working. Tuesdays and wednesdays I train MMA.

My question is what kind of training routine should I look into for Mon, Thur, Fri?

I'm accustomed to a "bodybuilding" type of training program but i'm looking for a routine that is more in line with my goals.

Can anyone out there help me? I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks!

thank you Rauno... i'm really wanting to make sure that i'm training right. I'm still brand new but i'm a decent quick learner and it's definitely fun. I'm looking to compete in 6 months.
