    I don't think it's too close to your competition, and its only your right bicep.

    i have heard you just not supposed to get a massage to your legs within 2 weeks of a fight. I have never heard nothing about upper body massages. Sometimes you can see fighters warming up and getting a bit of a massage to their back, shoulders, and arms. So i think it would be fine.

    As long as it doesn't include a "happy ending" it should be fine.

    A massage in no way will affect your perfomance 2 days before. It may actually be benificial in your case since you do have tightening in the right or left bicep since it will free movement up.

    My first thoughts, althought I thought about it and even a happy ending can only help.
