I think Hamemring Max strength/power and then leaving MOST metcon for sport specific training provides the most benefits. Now this is for a professionsal fighter. For someone rolling 2-3 dyas per week for an hour per session some outside CrossFit/Ross style metcon (1-2 days) in addition to strength work I think is highly appropriate and beneficial.

In the case of the SSP for the fighters you will need to alter those drills frequently to prevent adaptation. The name of the game is learning to be relaxed and movement efficiency. This may become at odds with increasing levels of conditioning which is where a weekly fight gone bad or similar time indexed circuit may be VERY beneficial.
