My undereducated opinion is going to say not necessarily. I've gained strength on several long term cuts. One cut, while using strict intermittent fasting, I lost a fair amount of muscle mass while bringing my strength up quite a bit. This took place over a 110 day period in 2007, and I lost about 50 total pounds and about 10 pounds of muscle.

A lot of different variables and possible scenarios here.

Given that none of us cut for years on end, at some point if the strength gains continue I am going to say so will the muscle gains, to some degree.
