Was this before Cejudo retired or after he retired. Also no one can say that Chael isn't a very analytical guy, there's a reason he's done commentary before and why he is now on ESPN.

I wish more MMA fighters would speak their mind on topics the way Chael does. I'm curious to know how Ben Henderson identifies as a christian while flashing the satanic illuminati triangle with his hands before fights.

That isn't satanic in and of itself and it's hard to tell exactly what he means behind that triangle symbol. Only time will tell if I am wrong but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I have more of an issue with Jon Jones having a verse tattooed on his chest and yet continues doing crazy stuff that gets him arrested well into his 30s.

If there were real MMA journalists covering the sport. They might have asked Ben Henderson what his triangle hand symbols meant 8+ years ago.

Maybe one of the clearest indications of how there is no market for real or legit information in this world.

I'll tell you what, as a MMA journalist if I ever get the chance I'll ask him what that triangle gesture means. As a fellow Christian I've been wanting to interview him for a while anyways but have never gotten the opportunity. I guess he just never has been to the same events I have.

Flashing that triangle symbol, normally means someone has ties to freemasons/illuminati/etcetera.

That could be why reporters make a habit of NEVER asking about it.

Well I have never feared asking about it so like I said if I ever get to interview Benson Henderson I will take the opportunity to ask him about it. Also to be fair the freemasons are technically a fraternal organization and not a religious organization. My grandfather was a mason at one point.

AFAIK the triangle symbolism dates back to Pythagoras and his secret society. It may also date back as far as the ancient egyptians and their sacred pyramids although I'm not 100% certain on what the connection is there.

The triangle means different things in different eras. There are famous celebrities like Nietzsche who lived more than 100 years ago who were in conflict with secret societies using the triangle symbolism. We know this due to Nietzsche authoring and publishing pieces where he trash talked groups using the illuminati/freemason triangle symbol.

AFAIK today the triangle illuminati is affiliated with satanism which is something like a relatively new development.

I don't think Benson Henderson would be publicly proclaiming his Christianity only to be a secret satanist considering he's publicly advancing one over the other. If he were an outspoken satanist he'd be saying it. Speaking of which has everyone noticed that there are not active satanists in MMA?

Satanic/illuminati affiliated groups believe people are fools who deserve to be enslaved, treated like trash, and so on. They'd like nothing more than to deceive a christian celebrity into flashing symbols which reinforce those views.

People tend to mock the idea of there being secret societies operating in the world. For anyone that knows basic history, they know secret societies have been a real part of life for the past 2,000 years. Even as far back as 500 BC you had Pythagoras using his secret society to heavily influence politics and daily life in greece. Its been a real thing forever.

Satanists and related affiliations typically do not believe in meritocracy. It makes sense very few would participate in meritocratic sports like MMA. Their goal is to control everything. Every industry. And so I think people could see that influence being manifest in MMA eventually, if that hasn't already happened in several different ways.

I'll say this. Remember when Brian Ortega slapped Korean Zombie's manager when KZ went to pee. That 180 shift in Brian Ortega's behavior could be linked to groups like the illuminati. That could be one indication of their influence on MMA.

Everything I said that turned out to be true over the past 10+ years.

Sounded like a conspiracy theory @ one point in time.

"And those who see will become blind" at the end.

Refers to groups like the illuminati who pride themselves on having vision and clarity "above" who they view to be the ignorant masses.

Movements like flat earth don't gain mainstream adoption unless backed by deep pockets.

Did anyone notice Jon Jones and Diego Sanchez posting on twitter/instagram about George Floyd the day BEFORE the riots. Strange. I don't remember Jon Jones or Diego commenting on current events before.

If your domain expires you can have your site back up in 5 minutes with a new domain.

Actually what happened was that in order to start the process of getting it back up I bought the site from the founder of the site who was the financial backer. As for Jon Jones and Diego Sanchez commenting on current events that is unusual considering they don't normally do that.
