Best pure muay thai in mma

I was just wondering what MMA fighter uses the best muay thai. I mean in every reguard from the strikes to the clinch. Someone who if they fought a K1 fight or a traditional muay thai fight would do well.

well silva never fought in k1 i believe
but his muay thai transitions into the octagon better and anyone.
In a way hes kinda doing to muay thai what royce did to bbj in the ufc.

Silva's name was one of the first to jump to mind. Of course I think his muay thai has been transitioned to fit more of a mma style. Im still new to MMA and muay thai so I havnt seen that much of silva just a few fights.

If you want pure Muay Thai but it's not in mma look at Buakaw, John Wayne Parr, Yod, Nathan Corbett (sick elbows) Ramon Dekker, and guys like that.

Ive seen a few of those guys on the contender asia, and am even more excited to see it will now be carried on the versus channel. I like watching muay thai fights, I think they have a lot of action and its great to see talented fighters. When I watch many mma matches and I see a fighter who has a backround in muay thai, they often use a style that has been changed to suit mma. Thats why I wanted to know who has the best pure muay thai. Someone whos style is the least changed from traditional muay thai because there not intimidated by the flash knockout or they have the jits and wrestling to back it up.

No one in mma is going to have a style that is real comparable to traditional muay thai because they have to worry about the takedown. The traditional stance in muay thai would lead to someone being taken down with ease. Anderson Silva and Wanderlei Silva have some of the best muay thai in mma.

do you remember that dorion prive guy from TUf 6?
he was the black guy going crazy at the cameras.
well i went to one of his proffessional muay thai matches
and he got ko'ed so bad by a local guy that they had to bring in a stretcher for him after 20 minutes of him being ko'ed but then he walked out.
my piont being is that nuay thai is ****in rad and dorion price sucks

I guess I would have to vote for Anderson and Wandi Silva for using their muay thai in mma fights, but like was already said its not a good idea to try and be 'pure MT' in mma.
