Conditioning for MMA

Hello all, I've been training MMA for a few years now. A couple of years back I slipped discs in my back(which I put down to poor core strength). My previous training regime consisted of
7.00AM 3 mile run(sprints twice a week)
10.00am Boxing
1.00pm weights(body parts each day)
7.00pm MMA

I stuck with this religiously where my running and weights were only to supplement my MMA training. However little effort was put in to save myself for Boxing and MMA.
Since my injury I haven't really been doing MMA so have concentrated more on running and weights.

As I've got back into MMA I've been reading more into sport specific conditioning. Only problem is there's so much out there and not sure how I should split my week. ie. when to do plyo's, kettle's, met-con etc.
I work offshore so when home can train all day, just don't want to overtrain as this was a problem before.

Sorry for the long first post, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Conditioning for MMA

i dont do to much MMA myself but i have some coaches that switch up CF and MMA, their schedule is a little like this

Monday: Run+WOD+MMA
Tuesday: WOD+MMA
Wednesday: light Run+WOD+MMA
friday: Run+Boxing+MMA
Sunday REST / WOD+MMA or boxing

you can mix it up, but something along those lines would work well.
Then you would have a decent bit of energy left for MMA.

give it a try.
