Me neither. I don't bother about "fighting" or think in those terms nowadays.

I still love sparring. But I don't like to spar with my own students. My main interest in sparring is to obtain a successful clinch in a fist flying environment. Most of the time I don't even care about the finish move. When I can find opportunity to enter and enter successfully, the amount of joy can make me smile in my dream for many nights. In sparring, there are something that I enjoy very much that even money won't be able to buy for me. Through the sparring process, I try to prove whether "anti-striking" is possible or not. I'll need a huge amount of data in order to prove it or dis-prove it.

You don't need to spar "to prove whether 'anti-striking' is possible or not." There is already "a huge amount of data in order to prove it or dis-prove it."

UFC has featured high level grapplers (e.g., olympic and international champion wrestlers, judoka, BJJ, etc.) against other MAists, since Nov 11, 1993. Fights can be found on the internet.
