Left handed or right handed??

Hi everyone!!
I have been doing MMA for a month and now that I am starting with Muay Thai I find I have a problem: I am left-handed, but right-footed and I'm not sure what stance to adopt. In orthodox I can kick properly, but I punch much better southpaw. What do you think I should do when fighting Muay Thai?? Thank you!!!

I'm pretty much the same; right handed yet left legged. I just punch in the orthodox stance and strengthen my weaker foot. Handy to have a pretty solid switch kick

This is one of the weird situations but very very illusion to opponents.

You can strike from odd positions which makes predictions hard for the opponents.

I think Semmy Schilt was the same way. He stood orthodox and had an improved jab because of it. Whatevers most comfortable is what I'd go with. Good luck

From your recomendations and what I have tried I think I'll mainly use the southpaw stance and change quickly if I need to use my right leg. I'll update you in a bit and give you my own opinion in case anyone else is in the same situation.
Thank you!!

Dude use both stances but develop them both in fights you might come across a really strong orthadox fighter but cant handle southpaws and you can pick him apart just use both stances to be honest i believe being strong in both stance is so helpful if you get your front leg hurt change stance and be just as deadly

Whichever stance gives you better defense and movement since offensively your about even with one good arm/leg and one weaker arm/leg. I'd stand the way that was most comfortable for moving.
