However knees, elbows and the ability to at least defend kicks are all a necessary part of mma training. the other thing is muay thai does clinch work so if u prefer clinch take-downs (as apposed to shooting) then muay thai may fit your game easier.

like i said depends wat u like, maybe do both and see for yourself
if possible train in both if you can get it.. you'll have great hands with lots of options in feet knees and elbows
