siyar is a ufc fighter. and his quotes are directly about expression of religion. a big part of his story is where he is coming from. meanwhile, the ufc is an org where every second fighter thanks jesus. there is no relevancy issue.

If I ran the UFC, I would ban the fighters from ANY religious speech in the octagon.
I swear religion is the root of all evil in the world. Today, at least 16 Nigerian Christians were killed my Muslims. Why didn't God save his people or why didn't Allah stop his people from killing others. Oh I forgot, God gave us free will...it's all madness!!!
BTW, if I deleted a pdf version of the Koran from my PC, do I deserve to be killed?
lets not get into how many americans have killed innocent muslims in the last ten years...
you point is a bit myopic condsidering you are assuming the stance of a neutral.
but more to the point, this thread will derail fast if it starts being about things outside the octagon.
the reality is that it seems fair to be pro freedom of expression when it comes to all religion or anti. by supporting the propagation of one religion you are turning the ufc into a christian book company.
i know your position is to ban all of it. i am just highlighting the inherent contradiction involved in being pro expression so long as its christian. its kind of like being pro ice cream and then puking at everything other than vanilla.
we have fighters thanking jesus in every second fight. why shouldnt a muslim one thank his god. and if we were to have a visceral reaction to that little spoon full of diversity, then surely we are the barbarians and not them...
