Your input would be appreciated as anything you think I need to change or
anything i need to add for better progress
there are more equipped to give you advice on here and i'm sure they will, but a quick thought from me is that you might wanna knock the long runs on the head and replace them with some interval training/tabatas that kind of thing which will improve your conditioning more specifically for mma.
also, the 'full body weight workouts' i'd replace with gym sessions that, whilst still utilising some bodyweight work such as dips and pull ups, should include some heavy weights inc. deads/squats etc for your strength.
Cheers for the info mate,do you have any info on my diet or does that look ok

Here's a little tip you might find useful to implement...
One of the simple tips that I give that is immediately useful to most people is a recommendation to implement high/low programming in their training.
The basic idea behind this is that if you have a day on which you have a stressful/draining session (high intensity), the next day should be an easier day (low intensity). This will enable your body to recover more easily, and help to prevent overreaching and overuse injuries.
Here are some sample ideas of what is categorised as high and low:
* Heavy weight training
* Plyometric Drills
* Hard sport practise/Competition
* Easy jogging
* Technique work
* Light weight training
* Massage and other recovery modalities

I think your workout and diet looks pretty solid, except I would lift heavier weights. Keep the runs in

how are your energy levels ??
with regards to strength and putting on functional size i found mike mentzers high intensity training ( book ) to be excellent , although alot of people question his methods , it worked for me , albeit you have to rest for days and days so it might not work for you!!
good luck with your training , hard work will pay off eventually
My energy levels are quite good i will just have to start the programm and see how i feel and how i benefit from it
let us know how you got one , as alex says above if you can go heavy then rest ( active rest ) then you will benefit from the extra weight you are chucking around , even if you can only do smaller sets, and also do at least 5 mins of stretches for each bodypart you are going to cane and 1 warmup set with 1/2 weight.
