    Not likely there will be many if any, and it isn't necessary anyway.

    This. Strength training is just another part of GPP for a fighter. A fighter trying to get to a 3 x body weight Bench makes as much sense as a Powerlifter training BJJ for hours every day in the run up to a Meet.

    Wouldn't a 3x bw bench put one in elite PL'er territory(assuming squat/dead proportional to it)? I seriously doubt anyone in combat sports would even bother to try. Maybe Pudz, if he counts.

    275 is so 2017, it's all about the 315 this year!

    There aren't too many people who have a 3xBW bench, period (especially assuming it's raw). I highly doubt any of this lifters also have the time and energy to be elite MMA fighters.

    I remember hearing marcus Davis could bench into the 400's which I found pretty impressive for a WW MMA fighter, but a 3x BW bench is pretty incredible. Imagine GSP could bench press 600 pounds, that's pretty insane.
