I think first is to get back in shape. The fundamental of every sport is conditioning so as to prepare the body and mind. I recommend at least a month or two of cardio and strength exercises.

We don't want to push early since it will lead to injury. During that two month span, it would help a lot if you familiarize your muscles to MMA moves again. Just a light practice of throws, grappling and striking for at least 20 mins 2 or three times a week depending on your availability.

If you don't have someone to practice with, try to find submission grappling dummies or punching bags. That's it I think. :)
