Question fellas, i'm fighting on friday and i wanted to get a massage today because my bicep has been extremely tight, there's a huge difference between my left and my right one...and its my jab hand to so i need that arm a lot, i was wondering do u think it would be alright to get one, or do u think its to close to competition, thanks guys.

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.
