Also another quick question the fight is in Feb next year so I feel its a little soon to be starting my preparation camp for it now.
How long before the fight is ideal in your opinion?
As said above if he's pure Sanshou he's probably a wet fish on his back. If you're avatar is any kind of indication, you probably are much more versed on the ground than he. And as you probably know JJ off your back has a whole lot more to do with technique than muscle.
As far as I know about training and general physiology, a camp of between 3 and 4 months is what works the best. Meaning that you'll peak around fight night, or a little after. That means that with a fight night in February, maybe the 2nd or 3rd week of November would be time to start climbing the proverbial stairs to peaking!
