Most organizations I've seen that do kickboxing have rules that have no elbows or knees. Plus, doesn't Cro Cop do Muay Thai, according to his website he started in Muay Thai and moved to grappling.

My goodness. The OP is long gone. Someone should close this thread, lol.
I think everyone agrees, Muay Thai is better than kickboxing, overall. I'm not saying all kickboxer will ger their asses beat by any Thai boxer. Just saying that you'll learn kickboxing out of Muay Thai, and then some.
