Now you can do all the stuff in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in backalleys and make off with people's purses.
i dont know which style would be best, but look at their adverts, if they mention self defence, then its probably got street fighting
Knife fighting. Or gun fighting.
Or run them over T style.
The real way to win a no holds barred fight against an opponent of equal skill is a choke hold. Ever watch Ultimate Fighting? They always end up choking eachother.
So just practice locking an arm around their neck while your buddy beats them in the face and gut.

FIrst thing to know- there is no "normal" street fighting.
Read this about knife fighting, then read what else is on his website:
As for Ultimate fighting, its all a set up. They end up using chokes because you arent allowed to gouge the other blokes eyes out, in fact, you arent allowed to kill them. Admittedly the fighters in it are indeed very hard, but remember it is still not a real life fight.
The main thing to do when choosing a martial art is try them out. If you like, do a couple of different ones. My main one just now is historical fencing, i medieval swordfighting. I have done karate and aikido, and need to get back into one of them. Nearly half of the sword fighters have done another martial art at some time. Cross training is very useful.
Final words: The best defence as taught by all respectable martial arts schools, is to run away. Your fitness training should keep you fit enough to outrun any gang of neds you come across.
