Default Christian Fighters

You may list them in this thread, its nice to know who our Brothers in Christ are.

I start with a strange one...I always thought that Diego Sanchez was a Budhist or something like that...but I read a blog of His recently...that made me wonder...is he Christian??

In his blog thanking people for support in Londons UFC he says I feel so blessed by the Lord.

Also, Matt Lindland is a Christian, even though I was kind of shocked to learn that.

Randy Couture is supposed to be a Christian, but he's not really showing the fruits of it in his life right now (married to a woman that he cheated on his first wife with).

I would only say that we dont know everything that went on there with Randy. I think overall Randy always acts in a Christian way but i dont really know.

We know that he cheated on his wife and eventually divorced her and married the woman that he had an affair with and is unrepentant about the whole situation. What else is there to know?

We all make mistakes. Randy may be say he is a Christian but I don't think he is really saved.

Well how far do you hold him it against him, yes he has committed a sin but how do we know that in every other action he is desperatly trying to live in a good Christian way?

I am not saying what he has done is correct but that doesnt stain him a christian person for his entire life.

From what i recall as well, i know Matt in his book says that afterwards he had judged Randy without knowing the full facts and felt he should have been there more as a friend.

All i am saying is that we dont know what was happening in that marriage and what problems were there and how much Randy agonised over some of his actions. Furthermore, do we know for certain he had sex with her?

I only plead caution because i believe you more than anyone knows how people judge Matt Hughes without knowing the real him and the real story behind it. I would dare to say the same about Randy and yourself before judging him.

The point being, perhaps there is more to know......................?

Wrong, actually (never thought I'd be able to say that to Nate!). On Thanksgiving break his first semester in college, Randy knocked up an ex-girlfriend. He then married her. After a while, he got bored with that & cheated on his wife with Tammy, a fellow coahc at OK St. Then that started to get old, so during TUF 1, he met Kim & started cheating with her. Tammy found out & got pissed, so Randy divorced her & married Kim. So here's Randy's record:

1) Pre-marital sex
2) Extra-marital sex
3) Divorce
4) Marries mistress
5) Extra-marital sex
6) Marries mistress
