B.J. Penn’s Camp Files Formal Complaint Over Vaseline on St. Pierre’s Back Between Rounds

B.J. Penn’s camp has filed a formal complaint with the Nevada State Athletic Commission over Vaseline that was allegedly rubbed on Georges St. Pierre‘s back between rounds one and two.  UFC president Dana White said at the post-fight press conference that he was aware of the complaint, and said he personally witnessed members of the commission take the Vaseline away from GSP’s camp and rebuke them in the Octagon between rounds.

"I saw the commission jump up there and flip out," said Dana White.  "They said one of the guys was rubbing Vaseline on Georges’ back in between rounds.  It was one and two, I think."

"The guys from the athletic commission went up there and started screaming at them, knocked the Vaseline and kicked the Vaseline out of the Octagon."

White added that "some Vaseline on a guy’s back didn’t change the outcome of that fight, but you don’t do it," and said the blame should fall on the cornerman responsible and not GSP.

"If a guy was intentionally putting Vaseline on a guy’s back, he should never corner a mixed martial arts fight again."

As for what becomes of the complaint now, White said it’s out of his hands.

"Who knows.  That’s up to the commission."

Update: A member of Penn’s entourage tells Fighters Only that GSP came out for round two "covered in Vaseline," adding that the "“whole [of Penn’s] team is pissed off."

BJ"the Blow Job"Penn was a gr8 fighter once but because he's been always lazy and hates training guys like GSP who has the same level of talent but trains 50 times as hard as BJ handed his ass to him so BJ is acted like a little Bitch and was crying about the Vaseline incident between the 2nd and 3rd round which was caught by the Athletic commission rep.right away and was wiped dry immediately.And it wasn't GSP who did the Vaselineing it was Phil Nurse the Muay Thai Coach.Ring Coaches now all the little tricks and if they can they will get away with it.The Athletes on the other hand can't even feel the Vaseline getting put on them coz the're sweating.GSPwas and is a much better Athlete,fighter and worker then BJ and hands down kicked BJ's little butt.When BJ loses is always someone elses fault what a little bitch he is lol!!!

Did Gsp win , well, technically yes ; but because of his corner it will always be questionable . No matter what's said or done when cheating comes into play you have to question the outcome . The only fair thing to do is have a rematch . In fact a rematch in Hawaii sounds fair. I mean Gsp got his rematch in Canada against Matt Serra .

I bought a can of Mickey's that had Penn on it to keep as a souvenir... Penn's quote on the can was "Never Give Up"... A little ironic don't you think. I use to support Penn... Now I think he's one of the biggest pussies in the sport. GSP should go down to Penn's weight class and take that belt so Penn can be seen as the little bitch that he is.

i'm sick of these excuses from penn, guy could have brought a loaded shotgun into the cage with him and he still would have lost.

this is the gayest comment i have ever seen... whoever wrote this.. um... keep your mouth shut... cuz it only regurgitates SHIT

Penn's never submitted from the bottom, ever. His only subs have come from the mount, where his opponents have given up their backs. Who would claim that Penn would have a chance of taking St. Pierre down?

You guys are just a bunch of GSP Fanboys...
It just shows how confident GSP's corner was on GSP winning the fight..
If you watch the fuckin Fight you would see that GSP see's his corner putting vaseline on him.he even watches as he puts it in his pocket.
Well long story short...He knew that their was a chance of him losing the fight, Thats why he cheated.And no, I'm not a BJ Penn Fanboy, I just Hate Fuckin Cheaters. Grabbing shorts,Strikes to the back of the head, Vaseline...Cheating..

I saw BJ's video... and it was super convincing... it can easily explain what happened and why bj wasn't able to do anything.. BJ needs to stop talking smack.. but if you are going to lose.. lose in a fair fight... GSP was greased.. that was dirty for that canadian to pull crap like that.. and since its something that he has been called for before a handful of times... that is totally lame... sure he looked stronger.. but BJ one of the best grapplers not able to hold onto him that seems fishy to me.. I thought the biggest reason he lost was because he had to gain weight and not muscle so he could go back down in lightweight.. but this seems like a better reason.... plus half of GSPs shots on the ground (4th round) were illegal and he kept getting away with it... that is lame!

Everyone complaining about the wrong people getting the main event fight card should join the petition to start the MMA no weight class division again. Bring it back were a 195lb guy beats a 300lb guy!!! That was some REAL fighting. No one asks what weight you are when you are in the street. You think you're the best...Then fight ANYONE in the ring.....No matter what size!

you have to agree..... it's hard to fight against someone in jiu jit su when they're oiled up..

I'm not saying GSP cheated, but he certainly had an unfair advantage..

this really tarnishes his win... I think BJ might have won if he could get a grip on the dude!!

I am a gsp fan and a bj penn fan. both are very skilled fighters. however i was very dissappointed as a fan when bj penn started his shit talking and smack. to make it worse he couldnt back it up. gsp is the superiour fighter and the vaseline is a done issue. even if there was no vaseline bj penn would still have lost. bj penn did not take the fight seriously and took a vacation when he should have been training. he was very cocky rude and totally unprepared. he has not really matured as a fighter since bj and gsp's first fight 3 yearsago. but gsp is a true fighter who trains very hard, eats right. doesnt fool around and take vacations and he always improves. i was glad gsp finally made penn shut his mouth. but penn now has something he can complain abiout. the vaseline was immediately removed and gsp pummled penn throughout the fight. penn got his ass kicked in every way. if only penn showed some respect and wasnt so cocky and rude and a sore loser then people wouldnt flame him so much as he is getting all around the net. he deserves those flames because of what he said and his conduct. i would look forward to a 3rd fight between them but penn would lose again. i hope next time he wont be such an ass.

vaseline had noting to do with the way the fight turned out to be. if you pay close attention to the whole fight Blow Job penn couldnt even walk straight back to his corner>> the guy was almost dying !!! ... out of air.. i had respect for what penn has done in his career but COME ON ! he talked so much shxt before going to the fight.. and i do understand you gotta hype your fights but come on... one thing tho.. i hope that after Blow job penn was taken out of the ring..walked to the dress room..taken out to the hospital..had the doc. give him some pills to make him feel better..lay down at the hospital bed thinking what the fuck happened ?? i hope you go and fxck yourself penn. :)
