    First off, good luck in your bout.

    It seems like somewhat short notice for bulking.... I can't really make any suggestions in that regard anyway, as I'm not qualified to do so.

    What are your strengths? you said your cardio isn't great, but what about muscular endurance? how is your striking and takedown defense? Do you have good submission skills?

    If you are wanting advice about a potential gameplan:

    1) Ask your coach.
    2) Be clear about what your strengths and weaknesses are.

    1. Figure out who the **** you're actually fighting (this will be important when we come to #2)
    2. Get a game plan for fighting who you're fighting
    3. Make sure your game plan takes into account your bad cardio and your skills in relation to what you know
    4. If your game plan is working stick with it

    What he said. Make sure you're not getting set up by the other camp, as well. No reason to let pride get you are severe injury- if this guy is a 3 time golden gloves, or all american city college wrestler, and this is his "first MMA fight", you could be the slow ball to be batted out of the park. If he's just some loud mouth who boxed once or twice and wrestled in 9th grade, kick his ass. Not much you can do about the cardio in two weeks. You should go to your local college or junior college and ask the wrestling coach if there is anything you could do in a short time. He can SEE you and evaluate you in person. If he can make a much better judgment than we can, over the internet, and he may be able to help. Plus, he might know who this guy is. Good luck.

    Kinda shifty to have your opponent swapped out at the last second. For what its worth I made my debut against a guy I was told had 2 fights and when we got there we found out he was 5-0. Still whooped his ass but good but man that scared the **** out of me.

    Guess Ill see you there. I still dont think this is a good idea in anyway shape or form but what the heck. As far as I know, these are Shooto rules right?

    Just do your damn thing. Are you better at standup or ground as of now. Pick one and try to make him fight in that area.

    Whos going with you?
