Much of it is extremely inefficient and counter productive to the economy of motion that combat requires. The one aspect in which it can succeed is the element of surprise. When you train for hours every day, you develop subconscious reactions to movements you drill. Deliver an unusual strike that a guy doesn't have time to mentally process, and you have a strong chance of landing it at least once (Silva v Belfort, Henderson v Pettis, etc).
