If anything, learn some basic boxing skills, how to thow a punch and avoid one. All you'll ever need.
To be a ****in badass knowing you can destroy fools if you ever need to. Roger Huerta destroyed that bigass dude that hit a girl. Pro fighters are basically superhuman with their reflexes and skills, they can own 99% of people out there.
If I ever start training seriously, I would probably go for Muai Thai and Judo, love using my elbows and knees more than punches.
