Muay Thai is overrated.

The Thread is self explanatory.

Agreed, while MT is generally the most effective striking art, it tends to be a bit rudimentary. Weak boxing and 1 dimensional kicking does not an expert striker make.

I totally agree with you and the ts, traditional muay thai is not nearly as effective as a more kickboxing style.

most fighters in the UFC don't use a traditional muay thai, it's more of a muay thai base that has been adjusted to work in modern combat

Dutch-style muay thai is neither weak boxing nor 1 dimensional kicking.

hmm, I wouldn't categorize Dutch kick boxing as having weak boxing, but I can't think of a particularly devastating boxer from Holland. I can't really think of a Dutchman that throws more than roundkicks either. Dutch kickers tend to throw their roundkicks awfully straight-legged too, not necessarily always the best technique.
