Yeah I'd agree and say Anderson Silva. Oh and by the way, Silva is a BLACK BELT AT BJJ so he is clearly no slouch on the ground.

Anderson Silva without a doubt. Wands Muay Thai is actually terrible in the traditional sense. Antoni Hardonk has really good Dutch Muay Thai.

Isn't their actually 3 different styles of Muay Thai. I train in Muay Thai in Korea but I've heard of a Dutch version that is supposed to be badass too. Can't remember what they called the third... Iwas thinking Silva did the Dutch version or something like that. And Kit Cope is an awesome Muay Thai fighter. He's got a cool new show too.

Martin KAmpmann is up there too...!

I'd say Anderson Silva is p4p the best muay thai practitioner in the UFC.

ANd what about Cro Cop, isnt his style Muay THai or is more Kickboxing..??

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

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.
