The hottest new thing to hit the sports world also gets asses in the seats at the local church: Christian MMA. If you win the fight, it's because God wanted it. I guess "God" can be a little vindictive too.

Christian MMA or, as in this case, Muay Thai is a great way to get more people to praise god in church. You might ask, "How is a simultaneous, double-pants-pounding knockout possible? In the fighters' eyes, it’s all in the name of spreading the Good Word.
The folks who believe they are going to win with the help of god and not by training, skill and a little luck probably won't suffer too much more mental impairment at Church MMA.

“The whole reason we’re having the fights [at the church] is so we can bring people in and tell them about God,” one fighter says. “The hope is that through the fight I can create a relationship with the person I’m fighting and extend Christ to him.”

What better way to honor the Lord thy God than kneeing another fellow worshipper in the cojones? WWJKITB?
