    Mixed martial arts fighter and former UFC bantamweight champion Cody “No Love” Garbrandt reveals in a new video how Christ saved him when he was in a “very dark place” in his life.

    “I always knew that He was with me,” Garbrandt says in the video for the non-profit I Am Second organization.

    The 27-year-old Garbrandt, who has a record of 11-2, said he grew up in Ohio in a family of fighters and that he and his older brother, Zach, fought for fun. It was a way of life, even if some of the fights resulted in bloody injuries.

    Garbrandt said, “My brother was always bigger, faster, stronger, meaner than me growing up.” He continued saying, he felt he had “something to prove.”

    Garbrandt wrestled in high school but then started doing drugs and partying. It “consumed” his life.

    “I was in a dark place – very, very dark place,” he said.

    Eventually, Garbrandt tried hanging himself. He would have died if his brother had not walked in and stopped him. They hugged, and Zach told him everything was going to be okay. It brought Garbrandt closer to his brother but, more importantly, closer to God.

    “It was a changing point for me in my life,” Garbrandt said. “That moment, that bond and that thing that we went through really, you know, brought us even closer. [We began] attending church services together. It was nice to be there with my big brother, worshipping God and growing towards Him. So that was a start of a growing relationship with the Lord through going to the church, through reading different books about the Lord and just kind of growing my relationship with Him on a spiritual level of speaking to Him daily

    There was also the cancer kid. I think Cody has a heart of gold underneath his juvenile attidude and little man complex.

    Though he should stay the fuck away from his big brother TJ.

    I agree with you to a point, but most Christians (myself included) do not consider Old testament laws to be binding in light of the new testament.

    Before you twist my words, i didn't say every law in the old testament is now ok to break (murder, cheating, etc).

    For the record though, i refuse to get tattoos myself, though not because i consider it a binding law. Im also not one to defend cody, just giving my opinion

    The conventional attitude is that those rules (like the one about tattoos) were rules given to the jews specifically, not humanity in general. Just like kosher food rules don't apply to Christians despite being in the bible.
