The hypocrisy of the Bendo hate

I really can't understand why people dislike him, well apart from the whole religion thing, which to me is a stupid reason to dislike a fighter. Even still, there are plenty of fighters out there who are religious and people don't have a grudge against them; matt hughes is deeply religious, no-one as a problem with him. 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?

Actually most people hate Matt Hughes because he is a raging douchebag. He's not a good example.

As for Bendo... the hate is really ****in' stupid. I'm not religious. At all. And I don't have a problem with him being faithful or thanking God after a fight. He's not preaching at me. He's just not hiding his light under the bushel so to speak. I don't mind that. I'm not sure why most do.

Religion isn't why I extremely dislike him.

I think many harbor anger due to showtime kick and his loss a few years ago. Until he faces Pettis a beats him soundly, it will stay. They are angry because their horse stumbled and Bendo has only gotten better. No one like picking the wrong fighter.

I think it's inappropriate to use the UFC (or any other major sports organization) as a platform to share one's religious faith. Religion to me, is a personal thing and should be kept private and out of the public venue. I have no problem with Henderson being religious, I have a problem with him using the UFC as a means to promote it. I don't understand that if he wants to thank "god", why can't he do it privately?

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.

A lot of people hate Hughes.

Bendo is similar to Bones for me. I don't like their personality and the some of the things they say but I enjoy watching them fight.

Love Bendo - Not a fan of Hughes...

I don't mind Bendo "praising the lord" after his fights because he's damn well earned that right. Other than that he should keep it to himself, which he does for the most part.

His controversial win/wins isn't his fault and really shouldn't be held against him since he had nothing to do with it.

Besides he's always in exciting fights so I see no reason to dislike him, he's one of my top three favorite fighters ATM.

I hate his religious rantings but I love his fighting style.

I just hit mute whenever a microphone gets anywhere near his mouth.
