Dana White doesn’t believe in The Jesus

(“This is my God! Nyeah!” – Totally Satirical Dana White)

It’s a generally well known fact on the UFC circuit that Joe Silva is a pretty die hard atheist. He’s the kind of guy that will plant a seed in your brain that will destroy your faith and damn you to hellfire if you give him so much as half the chance. As for Dana White, he’s always stayed quiet on the subject, probably because half the fans and fighters in the sport are on Team Jesus hardcore. But here he is declaring he doesn’t believe in that religion stuff either:

“My kids have asked me just about everything but that. I think my oldest went through a little spell there where he was, like, afraid to die, he thought everything he did he was going to die. I’m like, ‘Relax, son, you’re not going to die, OK? Not now, anyway.’ So he kind of got over that thing and we never really got there. But you know I’m not a religious person at all.”

“I’m not afraid of death and I don’t have to believe we’re going somewhere when we die. But my wife is super (expletive) religious. She handles that business. I think it’s not a bad thing. I don’t believe in religion and I actually think that religion is bad for a lot of reasons. I think it’s the cause of a lot of violence and death and a lot of other things. But I don’t see the problem in telling your children you go to heaven someday. Let them grow up, get older, and figure out what they believe on their own. I don’t cram anything down anybody’s throat.”

“You know what’s going to completely contradict what I just said to you? I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t do this. I can tell you right now, I’ve been in situations in my life where I’m like, ‘Dude, if you get me out of this one … ’ ”

And lo and behold, God did answer Dana White by gifting Chael Sonnen with a bullshit decision over Michael Bisping.

    Immorality is so much easier without Jesus.

    It only gets in the way of being a completely selfish and soulless pimp.

    The Sonnen decision over Bisping was totally legit.  He just didn’t totally own him the way that everyone was expecting. Bisping’s always had great counter-wrestling though, check out his fight with Rashad at 205, when Rashad was still something of a lay and pray artist. Power-punchers are Bisping’s kryptonite.

    Funny line though.

    So I guess Mrs. White is like the Margaret Schroeder to Dana’s Nucky Thompson.

    Did you seriously just call Sonnen a power-puncher?

    Never mind.  This is why God invented edit buttons, goddammit!

    Chael?

  • iamphoenix

    After all these fighters injuries, he she as hell believes in the gypsy lady curse. fuck that bitch.

  • iamphoenix

    *sure

    Nope, not Chael. Just some fool who likes to re-watch controversial decisions. Bisping might or might not have won the 2nd round, the 1st was a clear Sonnen round, and, over the balance of the round, the 3rd was, if nothing else, definitely not Bisping’s. Again, people were expecting Bisping to get gruesomely trucked, and he did just fine. That, plus the fact that Bisping got a takedown (his 1 to Chael’s 4 or 5) right at the end of the 3rd round gives people ideas, I tell ya. It wasn’t the Stann fight, but Sonnen definitely edged Bisping. Again though, all credit to Bisping’s excellent counter-wrestling. To reuse a line, someone should make that guy pee in a cup to prove that he’s actually British (perhaps being born in Cypress was a form of cheating).

    I don’t consider fightmetric to be definitive on close fights, but for what it’s worth, here’s their breakdown: http://hosteddb.fightmetric.com/fights/index/3764

    well now we know dana is a grown man who can think for himself

  • Mor(m)on For Prez

    If Dana can see the light that there is no god, then it is wrong to tell the kids that they go to heaven after they die. Why lie? Lying to kids is wrong. Tell them the truth, there is no personal god and to believe there is, is delusional.
