Question about Anderson Silva's fighting style
Please take it easy on me, I'm completely new to MMA. I've always had an interest in learning a martial art so I decided I will take one this summer. I started watching the UFC PPVs lately to watch various styles. I would like to learn something that has excellent stand up defense and something that can greatly come in handy if I'm attacked. I ended up seeing the Silva vs Mia fight and I'm very impressed with Silva's stand up defense and how it's extremely hard to grab him. Is there a certain martial art that he trained in to get such great defensive skills?
Edit: I forgot to add that I would like great defense and the ability to counter so I would like some type of offense as well.
