Controversial 'Fight Church' video sneek peak featuring UFC's Jon Jones and Ben Henderson mixes Christianity and MMA

"Jesus never tapped out."

"Mainstream Christianity has feminized men," according to the video trailer for "Fight Church."

Oh dear.

Looks like we have ourselves another touchy subject here, mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, so I'm going to ask you to tread lightly when deconstructing this in-depth look at what happens when you cross Christianity with combat sports. As luck would have it, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones is prominently featured.

As is ex-lightweight kingpin Ben Henderson.

Religion and cage fighting have made headlines before, thanks to UFC bantamweight brawler Michael McDonald, who has been known to throw hands against his own pastor. The folks in the above video, however, are taking it one step further by building an MMA gym inside their church.

They may need to pass that collection plate around for a second time to pay for all that equipment.

Naturally, some of this footage may be unsettling to those folks who aren't used to seeing kids beating the snot out of each other inside a cage, or shooting guns out on the range. At the same time, is normal behavior in certain parts of the country.
