Why people would hate on him because of his religion is beyond me. I do not by any means support any religious belief, but I also respect the fact that it is his choice and his choice alone.
When he thanks god in his post fight interviews guess what - he's earned that time on the mic and can do whatever he wants to with it. I rather listen to him than McDonald creeping me out with his awkward calling out of Condit.
As for him being a religious fighter, I like it. Those guys seem to fight like possesed people, which is what you want isn't it? Look at his fight with Diaz, he was a machine. Look at Jones' fights, he's very entertaining to watch. Look at Belfort, how entertaining is he?
You can hate on a fighter for a lot of different reasons, just don't make religion one of them. Thank you.
