If someone hammerfists you in the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. This could potentially be an axiom in the somewhat paradoxical world of Christian mixed martial arts—a very real and growing niche of organized fighting with a new documentary ready to launch. Titled Fight Church, the documentary showcases fighters of faith kneeing, punching and strangulating one another in the name of the Lord.

Veteran referee Vic Drakulich earning his pay from the commission. Well, that was...something. As expected, Brandon Rios and Diego Chaves went toe-to-toe in the main event of last night's (Aug. 2, 2014) HBO: "Boxing After Dark" tripleheader. They went a bit above and beyond the call of duty, however, and things went sour in a hurry.
