Tank Abbot benched a silly amount 700lb or something, and Houston Alexander benched 450lb. Both good punchers. Mikey Burnett was also a power lifter and was strong for MMA. Not all strong people fight well though.
Never did cleans myself. I do 400Lb (180kg) deadlift, 120kg squat (changing technique), weak 80kg bench. I don't do MMA, but if u watch the way Igor Bochanchin punches, its all upper torso vs legs.
I think farm boys and wrestlers are stronger generally.
I do mostly free weights, which builds stabilizing muscles making u bigger than if u did it with a machine.
