id say bjj
Of the main MMA arts Wrestling, BJJ, Muay Thai, Boxing what one style by itself ofers the best chance for success in a general confrontation.
If we harken back to the early UFC I would suggest that Wrestling dominated more that any other style in a era before crosstraining.
id say bjj
From those arts one on one it is BJJ.
In response to both your points ;
Even today a lot of the wrestlers still struggle to finish fights, despite their often superior positioning.
I also agree with bjj

Being a predominatly BJJ person.... I dont know about all your answers.
Assuming in your hypothetical that its one on one, than yeah I'd have to go with BJJ.
But for your general confrontation, whatever..... depends on your idea of confrontation, school yard fights, bar fights, getting jumped, confrontations as a result of being a LEO, GANG WARFARE.
It all depends... I'd proly have to go with boxing or wrestling for a general sense.
In the perfect one on one situation though, yeah bjj has got it.

Being a BJJer myself I would say you have a good point with that selection.
Let me suggest that in a match with an unskilled opponent that boxing may be the favorable skill as it offers the fastest finishes in the knockout.
I vote boxing.
out of all those choices, I'd go muay thai. In an all round situation, street, sport, health, muay thai seems to excel over the other options simply because you can hit your opponents first in every situation against the other arts, it fights alot dirtier than the other arts presented and has a wider range of attacks.

being good at any of these arts will be useful in confrontations.
however, if you really want us to pick a style i would say mt. mt gives you some skills/attributes that are a little more sd oriented than bjj inmop. for example in mt you learn to take hits, evade strikes, and counter attack people effectively. pure bjj guys can be made to ball up quite fast if you know how to strike. this is actually what destroys a loot of people. when the strikes start coming at them, they freeze or ball up which is exactly what an experienced striker would want, were as an experienced striker would not stop evading/defending/countering the strikes coming at them.
mt also gives you the ability to react and move much faster than most people. grapplers are also fast, but mt would give you footwork to move in and out of ranges while bjj would give you only access to one range. not only that, but mt includes bone conditioning. this can be absolutely devastating in a real confrontation.
