I don't think that CropCop does Muay Thai. I think its Kickboxing. But, a BEASTLY Muay Thai MMA guy is Cyrille "Snake" Diabate. I saw him fight Shogun. While Rua is definitely the better overall fighter, Diabate was TOOLING him in the standup. After barely blocking some lightning-fast high kicks and a flying knee, Shogun was tagged clean with a super-speed cross. In that instant, he saw that he was absolutely SCREWED in the standup, as this all happened within the first twelve seconds of the match. So he took the guy down and eventually stomped him out. But again, his striking was amazing.
