Simple, your core. Weak core = weak fighter.

Try http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/drobson263.htm out or go with something like the following...

Monday
1. Crunches
a. 50 x Bodyweight
2. Swiss Ball Hyperextensions
a. 30 x Bodyweight
3. Good Mornings
a. 50 x Bodyweight
4. Russian Twists
a. 50 x Bodyweight
5. Leg Crunches/Bicycle Crunches
a. 50 x Bodyweight
6. Side Bends
a. 30 x 50% 1RM (15 per side)

Wednesday - Complete as a circuit a total of 2-3 times with 90 seconds rest between each circuit
1. Workout Ball/Swiss Ball Crunches
a. 15-20 @ 40% 1RM (Plate)
2. Side Bends
a. 15-20 @ 70% 1RM (Dumbbell)
3. Leg Raises

4. Good Mornings
a. 15-20 @ 70% 1RM (Barbell)
5. Hanging Leg Raises
a. 15-20 @ 50% 1RM (Dumbbell)
6. Workout Ball/Exercise Ball Hyperextensions

This should build your core quickly and you will for sure feel it. Dedicated core days I believe should be done for all fighters as it is by far the most important for more reasons than can be named.

honestly if you are competing or even training with some intensity you are going to be tested in all areas
core is of course important but eveything is going to be taxed and tested

Legs

Legs are the most important muscles in MMA. They are your foundation. Legs generate power both in your ground game and stand up. Power comes from the ground up when you throw a punch. Train your body from your legs upwards. Here's a decent article for leg training.
