    If you were me...


    And you have trained only a handful of times since July, yet have maintained solid cardio, would you take a fight on 3 weeks notice?

    The fighter in me immediately wants to do it, but I have to give it a bit of thought. Would be cool to be on the same card as Rob, though.

    If your cardio is there i say go for it. I think the main question is, do you feel confident in your skills having only trained a few times since july.

    Always. The times I have sparred have been solid and it seems like my BJJ has improved somehow during the time off.

    I would say it depends how you fight. Are you a stamina fighter, or a knock out artist?

    that depends on your opponents record... if they guy is really good and has not lost a fight then you're his next victim...

    else go for it!

    I accepted a fight once 6 hours until weigh-ins. 3 weeks is nothing compared to that, but I haven't been training as regularly as usual.

    i'd say look at the opponent first. If you feel it is a good matchup and you feel confidant in your skills, go for it. If it is a "sacrificial lamb" type feeling, I wouldnt do it then.

    Good luck with whatever you choose though!

    Rodja I thought you were training longer then that. As tatoo said find out more on your opponent. Then make sure you are mentally there bro. I would say go for it, and start hitting the gym asap. And I would not try and learn anything new just work on what you know and prepare for your opponent (which I know you know).

    And Vika808 where do you live and when was your brother fight? :-)

    I have been training for over 2 years, but my MMA training has been inconsistent as of late. This will be my 7th professional fight.
