Are kicks important in MMA?

Hey guys, I was just wondering whether kicks are important or not in MMA?

Even though I've been training in thai boxing for 2 years I'm still not a great kicker. I'm good with my hands because I've been boxing since I was 10 years old, and I'm also pretty good at throwing knees, elbows and fighting in the clinch. It's just kicks I suck at. Also I noticed when I did MMA sparring with my muay thai instructor I was able to take him down easily whenever he tried throwing a kick higher than my waist. So yeah, are kicks important?

Also, what's the best way to fight against someone who has decent kicks when you don't?
