Storyline

Academy Award Winning Director, Daniel Junge (Saving Face) and director Bryan Storkel (Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians) team up with producers Eben Kostbar and Joseph McKelheer (The Hammer) for a feature documentary about the confluence of Christianity and mixed martial arts, including ministries which train fighters. The film follows several pastors and popular fighters in their quest to reconcile their faith with a sport that many consider violent and barbaric. Faith is tried and questions are raised. Can you really love your neighbor as yourself and then punch him in the face? Written by Anonymous

Couldn't have picked a worse person to represent Christianity...
11 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Google "Paul Burress" and read the "bloody elbow" article,and the "we have this hope" blog post on sexual abuse.

"Paul Burress and Victory Church, focal points of the Christian MMA documentary Fight Church, have long been at the center of some sordid sex abuse allegations." - BloodyElbow.com

"He (Paul Burress) was livid. He forced me to ride home with him to my parents house where I was still living. On the way we got into an argument and I tried to jump out of the vehicle as it approached a red light. He caught me by the hair and pulled me back into the vehicle and proceeded to choke me out (the rear naked choke hold he used is a blood choke hold he practiced in his Mixed Martial Arts). I wish I could say I wised up and left him after this incident, but I didn't. I broke things off for a while, but he was relentless with his apologies and in pursuing me. I was eventually lured back into the relationship. It took yet another altercation where he knocked me out cold in front of my two year old daughter before I attempted to seek help." - We Have This Hope: Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse
