So, it turns out that "Fight Church" is a thing:
The first rule of Fight Club is that you do not talk about Fight Club. But Bryan Storkel and Academy Award-winning director Daniel Junge are spreading the gospel about a fascinating new wave of Christianity in which pastors and followers are practicing faith by participating in MMA fights.
The article includes a number of great quotes from the documentary, of which my favorite is definitely:
“We’ll just be a couple of God-fearing men punching each other in the head.”
Here's the trailer. This one will definitely go on my "Must watch (when it eventually finds its way onto Netflix) list."
