I completely agree. It really depends on your goals for your workout program. I personally work my legs in two segment workouts (I'm on a 6 day split). I have day 1-3 workouts, then a day 5-7 workouts) all of which focus on differing things.
That's aside from the point...however if you really are looking to be successful in a sport, or MMA for that matter. You need some explosive leg strength, lower body strength. Explosive power translates into stronger take downs, as well as take down defense (in cooperation from a solid core).
At first glance, it definitely is hard to see if you are leaving anything out. I'd say, in addition to this split, Abs and Core exercises should be integrated at least 3x a week, as well as stretching and other mobility exercises.
I do not however agree with doing rows after your spent, but that's my opinion.
Check out the, Mark Rippetoe's program (from the book 'Starting Strength') however much of his routine is located on-line through various websites, forums, etc.
Best of luck to you, and more info would be greatly appreciated.
