Mixed Martial Arts Has Jumped the Shark Watch: Easter Edition

New, comments

You ready to go to Heaven? You ready to go to Hell? Let's get it on:

As Easter is approaching, one pastor is preaching that Jesus is entering “the Octagon,” or the fighting venue for mixed martial artists in the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Spirit of St. Louis Church in Arnold, Mo., and its pastor, Tom Skiles, are branding this Sunday’s message as “Easter in the Octagon: The Ultimate Fighter.” The flier posted throughout the church and other areas notes that for so long Christians have been told they should be “nice guys” when in reality they should be ultimate fighters.

For children, there will be an “Easter Smack Down” with an inflatable boxing ring.
