Most, if not, all Brazilian fighters are fiercely religious, that never gets brought up, so I can't see why benson gets so much crap about it. He seems a nice enough guy, so aye someone could enlighten me?
I dislike any fighter who thanks their magic sky daddy when they win. They never give him the finger when they lose. A lot of the other fighters are religious but not all of them thank the magic sky daddy.
For the record I hate Matt Hughes too.
I don't like any religious people because they fuel a culture of ignorance and superstition. I would just ignore them if it wasn't for the fact that some of them actually attack science because it makes their religions look silly.
