I won't say it's the 'best' but my favourite sport is boxing.
I predict MT will get the most votes, and not without good reason.

There's no best, but Muay Thai is the most adaptable for most athletes. It's uses many of the legal strikes allowed in MMA.

If you just want to learn something for fun or to dick around with your friends then any one will do as well or worse than the other.

If you're planning on fighting as an amateur or a professional then Muay Thai is the only answer. Ask any fighter.

Boxing.

Even Sanda is better for MMA than MT.

The thread title says best stand up not best martial art for MMA.

Take away the throws and takedowns from Sanda and it's not better than MT.

There's takedowns and throws in Muay Thai, but since hip throws made the clinch obsolete they had to ban it in MT. if you're going to allow grappling, then at least it make it fair. Grappling is a part of stand up MMA. Sanda > MT.
