What makes a good champion? One who's willing to take on his or her opponents on the field of their strength, and still win. I don't go in for the trash-talk, either, so if there's a feud, both fighters had better be willing to bury it after an honest day's battle in the cage or octagon. This isn't WWE -- this is a hard, and disciplined, and often immensely rewarding competitive sport.
