I don't get this. The roughest most violent sport in the world.......what would seem to be the farthest thing from what Jesus taught us, has many Christian fighters.
Matt Hughes was UFC champion 9 times and is a devout practicing Christian.
Rich Franklin is another successful UFC champion who reads his Bible before fights. He also has a Bible verse written on his fight shorts.
Randy Couture (heavyweight champ) said after his last fight that the Jesus Christ had given him the strength to fight and win the championship.
I don't know how many more are Christians but I just find it interesting that these men would see no contradiction between their fighting and their faith in God. I am not saying I disagree with either. I just find it interesting.
