Better for what? Both are Martial Arts. Both of them require a lot of practice to build up the skills and abilities to do properly. Most people will agree that Muay Thai practitioners are more effective in their ability to destroy an opponent.

The question of one art being better than another art is ALWAYS a matter of opinion based on individual likes, dislikes, and preferences.

What is your favourite style of clothing?

Muay Thai Ziquor: I disagree and say Jiu-Jitsu - without a doubt. In mixed martial arts where hundreds of different fighting styles are used - anywhere from boxing to wrestling to kickboxing - Jiu-Jitsu has by far the highest win percentage. When fights occur that include a Jiu-Jitsu fighter - the Jiu-Jitsu style wins greater than 82% of the time. For reference Muay Thai fighters win 60% of their fights and Judo style fighters win 58% of their fights. I agree with the guy above me Brazilian jiu jitsu is an excellent fighting style that has a great self defence so if you were to work on one Jiu jitsu is the way to go.
