MMA as self-defense

I'm a guy who is 5'10 and 170. I've been interested in learning some self-defense, I am really into mma but I have never stepped into an mma gym. My question is if you join a gym will you get to train purely for self-defense reasons or will the trainers pressure you into fighting? I'm extremely physically fit but I have had problems with people inciting physical violence towards me and I figured it's time to learn to defend myself. My worry is I'm fit and strong enough that they will pressure me to compete if I have any potential.
