As a staunch atheist, I honestly don't give a crap when fighters thank god.

I hate Hughes way worse than Bendo. I started hating Bendo when he tweeted something about how he automatically assumes people who smoke are stupid.

I don't like Bendo because I just don't. A combination of many many things.

In theory I should dislike Bendo - But I really, really like him as a fighter

I'm indifferent to Henderson as a person and a fighter. I don't actively root against him but I wouldn't by any stretch label myself as a fan.

Also...Matt Hughes gets major, major hate just about everywhere and there is a reason for that. He's just had a hell of a career and has done so much for the UFC, that his personality often goes ignored.
I agree 100% with Ari.

I'm a Bendo fan. I respect his fighting style, work ethic, positive attitude, willingness to stand up for what he believes, and I find his backstory an interesting success story.

I don't like long shaggy hair or big huge tattoos on anybody, and I think fighting with a toothpick in one's mouth is poor judgment. But none of those things would erase the points that I respect about him. Amazing how people are so quick to ignore his admirable traits and hate him for trivial things. What he stands for really bothers some people which is more their problem than it is his really.

Hahahaha! If only I had soojoos way with words...this, this and this again and also thx for once again making my life a few hours longer.

I'm also 100% sure Hughes is more hated than Bendo, the stupid religion thing being part of it.

I dont mind when someone starts spouting off about jesus or xenu, or whatever it is that mormons believe (i think it has something to do with magic plates or some shit), in fact, I prefer it. It lets me know that I do not have to share my drugs with them.
