Muay-thai teaches power from the inside, and I can fight there to but I choose to not to.

In my mind as a "very general" idea of the differences, I would look at cro-cop and wanderlei silva. Cro-cop and myself fight almost exactly alike. He is obviously a kick-boxer, wanderlei silva is more muay-thai. Cro-cop fights from the outside, wanderlei fights a lot on the inside and uses knees etc.
uh....crocop is kinda a dutch style muay thai...and your still way off on everything else too
