Default Re: Is Heart The Single Most Important Attribute If A Fighter Is To Become An ATG?

Mmmmm...good question. I'd say yes.
If we draw up any ATG list, all or virtually all the names on that list will have great heart.
I suppose being an ATG, a fighter will be at the very least good at everything, and have the required intangibles as well, so an ATG fighter almost by qualification in addition to other factors needs an ATG heart too.

So for the most part, yes. There are exceptions to the rule though. JT's example (Jones) and Tyson spring to mind. You could also mention someone like Liston who had possibly the potential of an ATG, but his heart wasn't made of English Oak either.

PS-is there a difference between heart and pride?
