Why not? What you're really asking is 'is fighting a sin?' Personally I do not believe that it is sinful when two willing participants agree to fight each other in a controlled and regulated environment. Street fighting is another story.

i'm just disgusted when a fighter thanks god for all the work the fighter did. anyone that thinks that God had anything to do with the hard work and preparation for the fight is batty! i mean, it's just another example of delegating the good onto god while ignoring the bad completely, or taking credit for that... either god helped you both win and/or lose, or not. can't have one or the other!

The better question is why not?

The fact is christians believe that talents are bestowed by God. Fighting is their talent therefore they credit God. Pretty simple equation. If it helps them in their lives I really don't care.

I totally agree. I think they are saying "I thank God I was able to do this in my life." Not, "God gave me this victory." Think about it, God is Righteous and just, if he helped johnny fighter win, that would be like cheating.
