    You seem a little triggered. Tough subject for you to swallow, huh?

    I'm impressed. As a Christian, I don't believe I could have stated it better.

    ...and I would add, that they got through it alive and hopefully that their opponent was not seriously hurt either. While a death as a result of a match is extremely rare, I believe often the fighter has to go in with the mentality of 'fight to the death' to achieve the most effective mindset.

    Who cares, if you let other people's actions or beliefs bother you that much, maybe it's an issue you need to deal with.

    I’m an atheist and I’m pretty sure if there is a god, he cares a hell of a lot more about the results of an UFC fight than stuff like curing cancer, ending religious wars, ending torture of children, etc.

    Go ahead and pray for anything major that people typically pray for in a dire situation, cure from a terminal cancer, saving a marriage, etc. I’m pretty sure the odds of your prayer being answered is well less than 50%.

    Fighters thanking god for victory likely get their prayers answered about half the time. Or if you are religious choir boy like Jon Jones with a Bible verse tattooed on his body; his prayers for victory is nearly 100%. God surely cares a lot more about UFC fights than say, saving children in North Korea or Syria.

    I'm with ya, I dislike it when fighters say the god shit after their fights. I'm all for freedom of religion and all that happy horeshit sure but that doesn't mean it belongs in a sport where you're being paid to risk your own health trying to knock another man unconscious. I think it's delusional to think god chose one fighter over another and whenever I hear fighters saying that type of shit it's embarrassing to watch.

    The answer to your question is zero. Zero Christians are geniuses. Zero atheists are imbeciles. Care to guess why?
