Ill break it down for you and give you the main ones

Major legs-quads butt and calfs...yes calfs are important for takedowns kicks and strait punches
minor- groin
mostly core exercises

shoulders and traps are very important

When it comes to arms most important are forearms and triceps..biceps are important but you'll get a bicep workout with all the pulling you'll be doing from your back workouts because those muscles will always be sore...I find that my back gets way more sore doing mma than basic pull ups bbrows what have you

Dont forget the bit between the ass and the balls... All the great MMA fighters have a specific workout for that bad boy.

You have to modify one of these, it take a lot of research and practice to do it though, I've only ever heard if it being done successfully and then the apparatus was so dangerous it could not be operated without permanent damage to the user.

Core comes first - then the rest... But you really can't be an mma-fighter and NOT work on almost all of your muscles.

Also the heart (Did not see that coming) Cardiovascular exercises is key

Lots of compound movements and bodyweight training whenever you can.

I found that deadlifts really helped with my wrestling. Squats as well are effective. I would say that military pressing seems more functional than benching for upper body strength, too. Get them pull ups in as well.

This. I found a major power and strength difference when I started doing more functional strength workouts like calisthenics, kettlebells, exploding drills etc. over isolated muscle development like the gym pulley machines.

Weights are good too, but I think these types of things are a must for getting that physical edge over someone your own weight. Mixing everything up is probably best.
