This is an interesting question but perhaps not really useful.
The better question is can you make the strategy work against a trained stranger from a different school or method. Many CMA types find that when really faced with a boxer, BJJ or MT type of trained fighter their strategy fails. This is because they dont practice the strategy under life like conditions but only at their school with fellow students.
Wasn't trying to be useful...just interesting.... in order to get chatter on this somewhat dead news group.
I agree with your assessment, yet its also a failing of most martial art schools in general. My belief in CMA is solid (as are my skills) yet many standing outside see it as non- effectual. I think this is due to the obscene hoarding of forms. And the belief that this is somehow good.

because most do..... I.e most Boxing coaches teach movement by getting up on the balls of your feet and floating or shuffling...hence bouncing. Siting down on your punches is totally another matter.....
For those that claim to know this - how many 'boxers' have you really fought? Kung fu (mainly southern fist styles) can hold their own against MT, boxing, etc... but you gotta train it hard with real applications
Fought? none. But I have boxed some.... and I know...... Northern Quan Fa can more than hold its own also.
Training as hard as possible and training without limitation
is the key.
