Advice for my upcoming fight...?

17th which is 11 days away I have a 4 hour cardio session which involves punching, kicking, falling, throwing, getting up, lying down, - it is grueling. They do not allow rest. I think the most intense is about 2 solid hours.
 
Last time I did this fight, I was ill for a week after. Aches, sore throat, body shut down, diffulty with my asthma condition, not able to work.
 
I am
 
41.
Heavy - 31% body fat
Muscular set
Asthma chronic, does not have problem with breathing, just hits my respiratory system after heavy training, leading to colds and fever.
I currently train - most days, cardio, walking an jogging, resistance and fighting plus one session of heavy yoag per week.
 
What shall I take with me to drink/ eat?
What shall I eat before and after?
Shall I leave a training break 3 days before the fight?

    Do you have to make a weight?

    well it sounds like you're notrecovering very well, whats your diet look like?
     
    i assume this is 4 hours with breaks? how long are the breaks and whats the timings between them?
     
    also your training should gear you up for this, as it's only 11 days away there's not much you can do, however i would be carbing up before as well as making sure i was hydrated and getting all the vits and minerals you need in you.
     
    you should have a decent amount of protein and efa's in your diet too.
     
    if you only train for a couple of hours at a time normally then in future you should build up your output/intensity to mirror the grading so the 4 hours is not a shock to the system. intervals and barbell complexes will bring your conditioning up, walking/jogging wont.
     
    also you need to drop your bodyfat, thats a lot of fat to be carrying around, lose that and the training will becme easier.
     
    as a short term quick fix i would make sure your diet is nailed for this one and get your conditioning up to speed, longer term drop some fat and structure your training better to suit your needs.

    Ok I can do more carbs before and less exercise? or about the same excercise.
     
    I think that I am scared of carbs that might be the issue as everyone says...
     
    Dont eat brown bread, pasta, potato, anything nice... Just a smidge of carbs with bags of protien...
     
    My diet is good if a little carb deficient. I could add more protein shakes.
     
    -
     
    There are NO breaks.!!! These guys are total idiots... I almost want to complain... There's fitness and there is stupidity.
     
    We do say realistically 2 hours solid of punches, kicks, drills, chokes, releases, lay down , get up lay down get up, four attackers, defend against knives, disarm opponent, over power opponent.Although it is not for real. you have to look like you are putting effort in.
     
    Last time I only did 1hr and i was in bed for a week... major sore throat, cold, aches, pain, immune system fully down.
     
    Typical current diet - it doesnt change MUCH see 4 Hour body diet book.
     
    1 - 3/ 4 eggs 2 toast morning
    2 - Chicken breast salad
    3 - Protein shake with banana and oats
    4-  Chicken sandwich, or chicken with jacket potatoe
    5-  Can of tuna - some crisp breads x 5 or 3 wheetabix with no sugar
     
    **** day - or London travel day
     
    1. Eggs x 3 and 2 x toast - Protein shake with milk and banana
    2. Subway turkey ham 6 inch with wheat bread
    3. Breast of chicken and wholegrain rice - 4 small slices of peanut butter with bread and marg
    4. Breast of chicken with salad or in sandwich
    5. Protein shake.
