    I found doing kickboxing comps or any comps in general are good practice to handle nerves hell i get nervous before a tennis match as much as i do before fighting, its competition wanting win brings out of you, at the start you'll feel nervous but so will your opponent best to just walm(can't believe i forgot how to spell) into the fight with a nice jab few low kicks and relax its all fun from there unless your opponent attacks like a madman which happens often in british fights.

    Although this he isn't talkin about first fight nerves, Frank Mir talking about pre fight nerves is a great watch and reassuring that nerves can get hold of a UFC champ;

    This link doesnt work for me.
    I bought Feal the fear .. and do it anyway (as advised in an earlier reply). Its a bit of an American self help book, but I did find it interesting.
    Feeling good about the fight now that my weight is 188lbs, fighting middle so gotta get to 185lb, nearly a month to go so looking good.

    I had my first fight experience last october in Berlin (you can see the video). I was nervous until the weight-in when I meet my opponent, Jaime Palou. The dude was so friendly that any stress just went out...
    Of course, I still had some apprehension and some weird feelings when it came to appear in front of a motivated crowd, and when I see my opponent in front of me in the ring, with mean eyes )

    Being nervous is normal but you'll see, in the moment you live the event that this is good stress and that you will just love doing what you're doing
