Muay Thai vs BJJ: Pros and Cons

Muay Thai and BJJ classes are offered near where I live, and my friend and I are interested to begin training in one of them.

Background: 18, work out daily, took Karate (not sure what style) a few years ago and got up to blue belt two stripe.

What are the pros and cons of muay thai and BJJ in a 1v1 fight? i understand there are nuances to each, and a fight between two well-trained fighters is hard to predict. i also know that BJJ specializes in ground work while muay thai is more stand-up fighting.

im talking about a 1v1 fight against someone who most likely has no formal training in either field (like some punk who wants to fight).

thanks
