Muay thai is Great for conditioning. also it is a very effective striking form.
i would try to train some western Boxing for your stand up as well as some Eastern Martial arts so u can learn the best areas to strike for maximum effectiveness in a real fight.
but for martial arts i would recommend a hybrid martial art, because they tend to barrow from all of the worlds Martial arts and have blended them into an effective practical fighting form. i highly suggest you try and find a True Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do school or academy. also dont be afraid to research some other Martial arts like Jui Jitsu and or grappling
you Must READ a book called TAO of Jeet Kune Do, by Bruce Lee
it will change the way you fight and train
