Need to Gain 5 -10 LBS Muscle in 2 months Help needed, due to certain circumstances

Alright well I have my first MMA fight 2 months from now and I am wanting to know a few things. First; Eating/calorie intake currently I am eating id say around 1600-2000 I know that is not near the amount needed (Consider I am Training MMA 5 days a week for 2 hours to 3 hours) Eating isnt really a problem I know I need to eat peanut butter(Easy source of Calories +protein + good fats) whole grains veggies beaf, fish. How much calories should I be taking in?My guess is around 3000-4000? (Weight: 155 BF%:16) due to the fact of MMA Training and then I will be needed to Hit the weights. I DO NOT want to gain unneeded weight such as fat trying to eliminate it as much as possible.
I am just not sure what I need to pack on this Muscle, if I cannot do so I will have a huge disadvantage. mainly looking to build up my upper body more than my lower for the fight. I would really appreciate it if I could get some help on this.

First, let me tell you this:

Do not eat any form of fast-food shit. (pardon me for the curse)

If you go on a binge diet to gain weight that way you will be worse off than you started.

I would suggest that you look into making protein-shakes such as:

find a decently priced whey protein take 4-scoops of this, take a pound of strawberries, 6oz of blueberry'raspberry'blackberry and about a half pound of cherries.

this will produce roughly 2,500 calories, in a 48-ounce drink. If you want you can eat what you do normally but drink half of this shake per day.

I cannot tell you this will help you in what you are wanting to achieve. But I believe this may be a plausible solution. If you take half-per day you would be adding about 1,300 extra calories.

Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die
