That's not a prayer- he's doing the end of a 'sun salutation'. Once or twice the film of him backstage has shown him doing the whole thing.

Check out this video- you can see the 'cheesy prayer thing' at the end:

YouTube - Surya Namaskara A - Demo by Russell Case

It's actually a very good warm up, with a mixture of cardio, strength and flexibility work, and it gives you a head rush from the way you breath and the fact that your head is below your heart for a lot of the time.

That being said, from what I've seen, Diego's yoga is very sloppy. I would kick Diego's ass in a yoga fight

I'll give the same reason the Leben haters give, he just rubs me the wrong way. I can't give you a single reason as much as a bunch of little ones. While I give the guy credit for what he has done I really do not think that highly of him and I hope Fitch makes him 19-2. WAR FITCH!!!

He's a douche and a jerk that has beaten some quality opponents and made for some exciting fights.

Who cares if he prays before a fight or gives goofy post fight interviews, isn't it all about what you do between the bells.

I feel the same way, I do have favorites and fighters I donít like as well but not because they represent something I agree/disagree with outside of the ring. Love him or hate him he is a good fighter and still improving his game.

I don't like Diego for alot of tiny little reasons, reasons that will never make me cheer for him ever.

The weigh-ins for 69 is at the very top of that list.

I usually don't care about fighters actions outside of the ring, usually he has exciting fights and that's why I like Sanchez.
