    Corner for MMA: equipment and stuff

    So I have my 1st MMA match on Friday. Problem is none of my coaches will be there. So my corner just became my brother and my friend (who has been involved in MA for a while).

    What I need to know is: what do I need in my corner equipment wise?

    Water, spray bottle, vaseline, ice packs, endswell, anti clot spray, stool, towel, etc...

    Yes I am horribly unprepared(in corner man aspect) but this will be a learning experience.

    Also, any tips on best methods to treat common problems?
    Cold towel to cuts, spray anti clot stuff, put some vaseline on it?
    Cold endswell or ice to mouse/lumps.
    Ice packs to any muscle or rub down if if I have no problems between rounds?

    Yes I am newb.

    Go to CVS or whatever, and get cotton swabs, the long ones with wooden sticks. Rubber gloves. Bandages things like that to patch you up afterwards. I don't know if there's going to be a doctor at the fight. Also Advil for after the fight, so you can drive back.

    All that stuff on combat sports you can get at Eckrd or RiteAid or where ever. I didn't think it would be a good idea to have someone in your corner who just fought, that's why I asked.

    Yes it was Uchi Mata....

    Anyway, thanks for asking LI GUY 1, yes I'll corner for you.

    Im thinking evrything you said but I think the promoter might provide some stuff. Stools, towels, ice and a bucket. Ill call him up and ask.

    Why not?

    What I need to know is: what do I need in my corner equipment wise?
    Water
    surgical rubber gloves
    ice
    icepacks
    endswell
    Athletic commission approved clotter (usually adrenaline, avintine or thromblin)
    sponge
    extra mouthpiece
    extra tape
    extra cup (just in case; I've seen breaks happen.)
    vaseline
    towel
    stool
    Sterile gauze pads, sterile cotton and cotton tipped swabs.

    Also, any tips on best methods to treat common problems?
    Cold towel to cuts, spray anti clot stuff, put some vaseline on it?
    Use the endswell, not a cold towel. Don't spray the anti clot stuff, put it on a cotton swab and press it in firmly.

    Ice packs to any muscle or rub down if if I have no problems between rounds?
    Don't ice a muscle in the middle of a match. Rub it down to get the blood flowing back into it; if you're feeling overheated, get the ice on top of your head and have your corner fan you with the towel.
