In episode 6 of Game of Thrones season 1 Tyrion requests a trial by combat and asks for a champion. Some guy that I have no idea who he was volunteered and won. Who was that and where did he come from?

The champion was Bronn, he was in the tavern when Catelyn abducted him on behalf of all the bannerman and he was a mercenary in those troops.

On the ride to the Eyrie, they have a slight bonding moment and Bronn decides that allying himself with Tyrion would be more profitable due to him being a Lannister, and, I belive in secret, respect Tryion's attitude towards life.

would like to point out that Bronn was at the inn, not a mercenary of the troop. He and his fellow were sellswords, who fell in with the troops for rewards. Also, during the journey, the sellsword merely was a companion to the Imp. During his trial, the Imp promised the sellsword wealth should he champion him. –  kicker86 Jun 18 '13 at 14:14

It was Bronn, a sellsword who took up as the Imp's champion for wealth. He met the Imp when Lady Catelyn was at inn and called forth men to sieze the dwarf. He fell in with the other Vale men for rewards, but grew close to the Imp during the journey to Eyrie.
