Workout help

i need to change my routine up a bit. i powerlifted for years and then switched to bodybuilding, then back to power lifting. the advantage is that i am much much stronger than just about everyone in my weight class. it's hard to submit me (in fights where i can slam and whatnot) and i can force a lot of subs that shouldn't fly. i've also got a lot of power in my strikes (particularly in my right hand). the disadvantage is piss poor cardio and i am somewhat stiff in my stand-up. also i'll never get below 185 and i'm only 5'10

what i need help on here is switching my workout up. with weights, what do i need to start doing more of and what do i need to drop? do i need to do more reps and fewer heavy sets? don't get me wrong, if they were all one round fights i'd be fine. but they aren't. i was thinking about maybe doing sets of 15 with 225 on bench 2 or 3 times and things like that, but i don't really know how to do this type of training.

what's some other stuff, besides jogging and swimming, i can do to build up my cardio?

i want some of that cardio you see from gsp and the like. whatever you got, i'll listen.

Are you doing any plyometric/explosive training as well. Another thing is Id suggest is to lighten up the weights and rest less, especially when a fight is coming up. By resting your increasing your cardio as well as taxing your muscles like they would in a fight by them not resting properly. Also do more fight friendly training.
