Fighting games for beginners?

I want to take a serious try on fighting games. But the thing is I dont have an experience!!!!!!! I didnt even play fighting games in the 2D era. So what are the best fighters for beginners? Should I get mk9 or umvc3? I played umvc3 before(in my friends house) and IM just button mashing and I can do some combos... show more I want to take a serious try on fighting games.

I played umvc3 before(in my friends house) and IM just button mashing and I can do some combos lol. And well I played mortal kombat(the psp one) and I found that some of the combos are pretty easy to execute. SO which is easier? I just want to play casually/offline to develop my skills..:D
