well ben, i would do a little of everything.

1) jump rope, very much needed and is good for endurance.
2) swimming, there is no other cardio that works you like swimming. it is a known fact.
3) running, build up your speed and distance. it is good for a normal cardio workout. it is very good to get repetetive and build/ use good breathing techniques.
4) roll/ fight/ spar, this is very good too.just messing around, going light with a partner. Working submissions only and grappling is very good for a cardio workout. Work subs, and go light. it is not a fight so you can also work on perfecting moves and teqhniques.

just a few i would try bro ;)

What me and a friend did when i was working on getting in fighting shape was, I would have him stand at the top of a hill or stairs, depending on where we were, I would run up the hill as fast as i possibly could right into him and then grapple for a couple minutes, then I would run back down and up the hill and repeated, I would do this til exhaustion.

As far as i know it is a head sized ball that hangs from the ceiling from a rope and it has a bungee chord that goes to the floor.

Vulgar you are thinking of a Thai bag. Get the Bas Rutten MMA audio tapes and get a bag. then train. thats all you need
