I have no problem with religion either but I'm on the same track as you.

They thank God when they win, never mention his name when they lose. And when they do win, they give God all the credit, it's something THEY did, the fighter (or whoever it is) deserves every bit of credit for winning, I mean sure it's not selfish, but c'mon fighters...take some credit.

I don't think they assume god had chosen them to win or anything. It's just having faith. Alot of people in drug/alcohol treatment turn religious just for the faith they feel

God could have let rich win if it was God's "will" it has to be his "will" because whatever his "will" is will happen, if it is God's "will" for rich to win the next fight against aderson than he will we don't know were only human God doesn't take coffee breaks he's always with us whether or not we realise it

they take alot of credit but the fighters realise it wasn't just them it was God who had a part in it that's why if they believe in God they thank him for it, the fighters get all the credit they need from the fans anyways

I find it very ridiculus that people put so much faith in God when it come to sports. If you put so much faith into God making you win a fight whats the point of even training surely the power of God is much more powerful then conditoning, striking skills, wresteling skills etc. . Im not trying to bag on religon in fact im christian but I find it ridiculus that people see there outcome in a fight in God's hands. The more talented fighter always wins thats just how it goes GOD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT! I think religion is fine but people let it run there lives far too much IMO. For the people who are religous think about it this way... Your praying for God to help you win a game. Dosent that come off as a little selfish? Prey for peace prey for a stop to hunger but dont prey on a foolish game. I know some of you may be annoyed that I made a semi-religous thread but I think its kind of good escape from the average fighting post and I wanted to get my opinion across.
God often uses hard times like a fight loss to test their faith because Christians are tested sometimes by God and every day by life, people, and the world, not saying that's what it is but maybe franklin needed a loss we don't know were not God

When someone dose well, or they are talente in some aspect of life they thank God for the strength, knowledge and ability they have been blessed with. I am sure that after the fight Rich couldn't say much or have much to say for the fact he was crushed mentally and physically! God works through wins and along the way you have to take a lose. I feel that if you take anything for granted and for any instance ignore God (since He is to be first in your life) he will take whatever is drawing your attention from him so that you can refocus your priorities! Just my thoughts hope it kinda makes sense and God Bless.

Romans 14:11-12... 11It is written: " 'As surely as I live, says the Lord ' every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.' " 12So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God. May God Bless us all.www.mmaworld.org
