what good exercises and drills can i do if i do start doing mixed martial arts?

I'm a 17 year old brown belt karateka who wants to try mixed martial arts. I like the look of the fighting system in mma and would like to give it ago. I have found a local mma gym which is like a 15 minute walk from my house and i have checked there website out and looks interesting. Cause i'm already studying karate and do a little bit of boxing, i was hoping to do mma once a week... till i get the money (gonna get a weekend job) then i would go more... but i can get the money but only would do it once a week cause of paying for karate lessons. So i do know some mma exercises and what kind of exercises to do... but i just want some more advise on what other stuff i can do. I have most equipment at home (from where i would train outside the dojo)... so inconclusion, i don't want to make you read to much... i want someone to give me a sample routine that i can do for mma by myself on a tuesday morning... or any other day if possible which can get me mma fit (don't get me wrong... i think my fitness level is good but of course mma is different to traditional karate)... so a good drill to do hopefully 2x a week in the morning... i'm going to go and start mma next week on a saturday... in the afternoon... 1st session is free so like yeah... (they do classes everyday but i want to go saturday cause of my busy schedule during the week). but please someone just give me a good routine that i can do like twice a week :) for mma... (not so much strength cause i have days when i do strength exercises... more around stamina conditioning, power, speed, movement etc... and some strength)... thanks if i get answers And my mum is paying for my karate classes by the way... i want a weekend job to be more independent and pay lessons for myself... there's things i'm selling so that's how i'm gonna get the money... for now till i get the job... plus i'm at college.

practise sprawling, sprawl, sprawl, sprawl, get someone to clap at random intervals and sprawl on every clap as fast as you can. look up an MMA sprawl if you dont know what it is. also you need to practise your groundwork, which im guessing you have done none of considering you only do karate and boxing. you can find...

Don't take my answer for it fully, Running is a good routine to do every day, just run a lap or park to increase cardio/stamina, push ups- increases the biceps/ depending on how strong you are/start with at least 3 sets of 10 daily same with sit ups. Bit of weights might help. Good luck!
