Weight training for MMA

Okay so i have taken a month off from my mma gym. so now i am lifting weights to help increase my strength, not so worried about mass. But during my boxing workouts with my coach we work on endurance, lots of reps. so my question is what is the best balance or combination for mma fights.

My routine changes a lot. I dont do mant weights anymore but when I did it was just the main lifts.
Bench press, squat, deadlift
All low reps from 1-5
I did other things too like over head press, bar curls, tricep pulldowns and so on just to throw in a mix.
I would try to do 2-3 sessions a week of weights.
But despite common oppinions you dont have to weight train all the time. Most of my club dont bother and they are all very sucesful in mma and bjj.

High reps is good for cardio and endurance, but not for building strength. For strength its low reps max being 6 around there. For size its 8-15 any higher its endurance.

Bodyweight is good but you will be limited to the amount of strength increases you can gain.

Things like plyometrics are good for explosive power. Single handed chins, dips, pressups, hand stand pressups are all good for strength up until a certain point.

At some point weight training will be needed though. You cant expect bit gains with pure bodyweight regimes.

I did do the 5x5 a lot. But mainly it was 4 sets. 3 were 5 reps increasing in wieght then the last was one rep max.
