Flash Fiction: All He Wanted

He was a mixed martial artist. 

When he’d lock himself in a cage opposite a foe, fans called him a warrior.

When he’d travel around the world for training or accept a short-notice fight, his family called him a nomad.

When he’d meet people who didn’t understand, or even disagreed with, the sport, he was called a brute. 

He only wanted to be known as a champion.
