My vague, second/third-hand understanding from talking to a friend who has trained at Chute Boxe is that their biggest problem in S&C is losing muscle mass. The pro fighters are typically doing a 90-minute MMA training session most days of the week, which I have heard described as "like doing Tabata intervals for an hour-and-a-half". They also do a 90-minute hard BJJ session several days a week.

Because they rely on their fight training for conditioning, their time in the weight room is aimed primarily at preserving muscle mass and promoting recovery, and is usually done bodybuilding-style.
