Default First MMA Fight Coming Up

Got a question about MMA training. I boxed amateur and still train in boxing several times a week and I also wrestled in High School, but Im facing a guy who is a pretty decent Collegiate wrestler(definitely a better wrestler than me). The fight is 3 months away should I just continue to improve on my striking where I have the advantage or should I try to learn more wrestling to counteract what hes going to try to do? I don't really have a lot of time to learn anything completely new, but I was wanting some advice.

Cardio is most important. Who do you train wrestling with? If you're wrestling is good you should be able to avoid the takedown and stay standing if you want too...

I dont train that much in wrestling anymore except occasionally at the gym Im 25 and havent actually wrestled for real since High school. I havent fought competitively in about 5 years and only train boxing to stay in shape and I spar because I enjoy the contact. My wrestling is decent, but Ive never wrestled anyone with as much experience as the guy Im facing.

If I were you I would get started on BJJ. At least after 3 months you'll have an idea of what to do and not do. And some take down defense.

How long would it take to get really good at BJJ? Im not talking about for this fight, but overall. I was actually in training to enter the Toughman competition later this year, but they offered me $1000 win or lose in an MMA fight. If I do ok I may think about continuing to fight, but Im already 25 and all Im really good at is boxing think it would be too late to consider doing this professionally?

It could take years to get really good at BJJ. Depends on you I would think.
There are a lot of factors to consider. Some moves come natural to some people.

Thats your best bet for this fight. If you do end up on your back, just try to stay calm, dont freak out. Try to think your way back up to your feet.
On your back, wrap your legs around his body, lock ur feet together, dont let him get on top of your waist. Bring one of your legs up, your foot close to your waist. Push down on his knee, roll out and get up. If its your right leg, his right knee roll left and back.

If you train BJJ 4 times a week for 2 months, you could get some good bases and reflexes. I did it and i can survive against some blue belts.

If you boxed as an amateur, you'll have an edge. You should keep the fight standing up. I already fought against a pro MMA fighter too and i found that my boxing was hard to handle for him. The difference in handspeed can work for you.
