    mid-air being thrown for ippon
    in three weeks ive got my first fight against a bjj blue belt ive been training the last 15months in judo cross training once a week in bjj,before that i did bjj for 3months and muay thai for a year.
    my top control is good,i have heavy hands good takedowns,lately ive been doing alot of private training with a boxing coach.

    in mma sparring with the fighters ive had good success with ground and pound.
    ive just taken a fight with a bjj blue belt i know nothing else about him other than its also his first fight.i'm a bit worried about the lack of time and the fact that hes a blue in bjj.
    any body have some tips for me?
    what i should focus on both as far as game plan and preparing physically.
    ive also got to lose bout 11lbs so would appreciate tips on cutting weight.
    i'm going to use this to keep a log of my nutrition and training hopefully i'll get some good advice.

    worked on the clinch both pummeling,and the thai clinch-controlling the oponent making sure to maintain dominant position and using it to set up knees , and elbows(wich i later found out i couldnt use)then worked boxing combinations on the pads.
    ate 8 pcs of sushi
    mma training.
    worked half an hour on boxing various combos off 1,2 slip.
    worked two takedowns off a high shot after firing a 1,2 slipping there jab and driving your shoulder into the arm pit of there lead hand and wrapping up there upper body.
    did 2x6min rounds at high intensity boxing on focus mitts.
    and 1x6min round in the "shark tank"=working thai pads with training partners surrounding the mat every 30-40 secs one of them is called in to jump me and we spar full contact mma.

    Welcome to the logs! Wish I had some better advice to give you but I'll leave that to those more knowledgeable than me.

    Good luck in the fight. Let us know how it goes!

    How many rounds are you doing? Get a solid conditioning routine. If you have 3x3 minute rounds with 45 second breaks, get yourself 9x1 minute stations. do 3 of them, take a 45sec break, another 3, 45 sec, etc. And train for one extra round.

    Or, pretending it was 3x3 rounds, train 3x4minute rounds, or something.



    Most important thing to work could be TDD and getting up off the floor. Is it cage or ring? Practice using a wall to stand up if it's the cage.

    Cutting and making Weight for MMA, BJJ and grappling

    Here's your weight cutting tips you requested.

    Training looks good, however it would be very valuable to get more heavy sparring in. You need to seek out some partners yourself if your gym can't give you any.

    Good luck.
