Are fighters born or made?

Fighters are made. There is a predisposition for it in one’s character, but I think you need to become a fighter.

Is there a difference between a fighter who grew up on the street and then came to the gym - and a man from a successful family, who was brought in by his father, and then started training?

It’s tough to say. I do think that children from either family can achieve great results. What’s probably more important is a child’s upbringing. Not in which conditions he lives in, but how he is brought up. The street doesn’t always harden a young guy, girl, or child; sometimes the opposite. We need to take the children away from the streets.
At the same time if a child lives not feeling a need in anything, and doesn’t have goals, interests, doesn’t go to the gym, or anywhere else - his character will rot. But if a child is busy training, that’s a whole other story. I would wish that there was mentoring at home and at the gym.LINK

IMO Fedor is the best kind of fighter. Soft spoken, seems like a nice guy. Seems like the kinda guy you could get a beer with, get p*ss A*s wasted, start Sh*t with EVERY guy in the bar, and he'd still have your back. ;)
