I want Ristie to come to MMA, he's Spong's best student and Tyrone is set to make waves in the cage. Ristie with TDD would be the scariest thing the LW division could ever imagine.

I think Maynard will dethrone Benson.

Budhi made a really good point earlier about he deserves his couple of minutes to say what he wants to say, it's true.

I just turn off the sound.

@Liddelianenko I don't like non religious folks pushing their beliefs just as much as I don't like relgious folks pushing their beliefs aswell. I have my beliefs (or lack thereof, really), others can have theirs. I'd prefer it if was kept personal but that's just me.

@Bresko - I agree, I imagine Maynard is much more likely to tage Benson's belt than people like Pettis or other upcoming LWs.

Then Maynard that fought Edgar in their first rematch would be a VERY interesting match-up for Bendo

If pettis somehow loses to bendo 2nd time around I cant see maynard winning with his average 5 rounder gas tank bendo will gas him and could guillotine him like nate diaz did in the tuf house

I dont see why I cant take the piss out of Bendo because of his Jesus nuthugging. I've got no problem with religion. I do have a problem with stupidity.

This thread is questioning Bendos marketability. I think his Jesus thing is a big part of why he is unpopular. At the end of the Diaz fight when he belched out "Through Christ all things are possible... can I get an amen?!"... Did he get an Amen? F*uck no. He got tumble weeds.

I'm gonna stick me neck out here and say, the majority of the UFC fan demographic are not the types for this kind of silliness. That's why he'll never be popular.

For the record... I'm a believer. Not in organized religion, but still, I believe in a grander plan. I believe everything is by design. So, Im not one of these atheist types who want to rag on a guy because they believe in something supposedly imaginary. Even considering this, I fecking dislike Ben Henderson a great deal.

You guys are obviously not the type I meant. You have your own beliefs and respect others right to have theirs, no problem with that. You guys are far from the usual militant religion/theism bashing type that flocks to these types of threads though.

FTR I think guys like Benson and Vitor are a bit dogmatic and over the top too, but IMO for the most part marketability has nothing to do with like-ability. People will pay good money to watch a guy they love, hate, or think is a complete looney, as long as he can beat the crap out of everyone he faces ... case in point Jones.

Same rules..
Well I haven't seen any atheist fighter shoving their views on others after a fight so obviously there's no theists complaining.

I'm pretty damn sure that if a fighter would kindly remind people that there's no god or gods after a fight, religious people would be raging all over these forums.

It's kinda funny that we non believers keep our mouths shut about this stuff and when we react to people who don't, we are suddenly the ones who started it all.

Of course you keep your mouths shut. You guys don't have anything to talk about, seeing as you don't believe any of this shit. Who's going to win a fight and then tell everybody they are thankful everyday that they don't believe in god. It makes no sense. You cant brag about something you don't believe in... although it doesn't stop some people.

You know what's funny? The atheist community. They buy books about it. Go to conferences. Watch endless Richard Dawkins youtube clips. All this effort wasted on something none of them believe in. I cant think of any other community where the main attraction is the belief that something *doesn't* exist. What a total waste of time and money.

Really - defining yourself by your faith (or lack thereof) is kinda silly. I still believe fighters who step into the cage and win deserve the right to say whatever they want in the post fight interview, they've earned that

Well I'm quite proud to live a life without superstition and I definitely can brag about it.

I'd say most of the people buying those books are the ones who are religious but have their doubts or just want to hear the counter arguments.

Yes, to connect with like minded people.
Usually in countries where non believers are a minority.

Have you ever watched any Dawkins videos?
They're usually about many things like culture, biology, different religions.

Quote:

None of them believe in.. You don't seem to understand.
We believe in many things like reason and science for example.

Quote:

The community isn't about that. It's about connecting with like minded people and fighting discrimination for example.
There aren't really any atheist communities in my country, since we aren't a minority.

At least we're not funding pedophiles, population growth and spread of AIDS in starving countries, ridicule of science, anti-gay movement etc.
In fact we're funding the prevention of that.
