And sometimes curls is on the list of things to do so I want to know whether they're good or I should just stick to Dips/Curls in the spare time I have.

Or maybe do Reverse Curls.
Bench, squats, dips, and pullups > curls any day. Don't substitute any of those lifts for curls, only add curls if you have extra time and have hit your major lifts for the day. Curls also won't do much for MMA, except maybe strengthen your forearms a bit, which could be useful.
