When it comes to weight lifting, I think "cross fit esque" combine style lifts (clean/front squat/push press/front squat) have more crossover than isolation lifts. YMMV.

...but isolation lifting certainly has its place too.

While strength is a great attribute, I think the gas tank is the largest weakness in the average person training to fight....

Strength can and does influence endurance, particularly local muscular endurance, which is a huge part of grappling.
