Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Georges St. Pierre Responds to LubeGate Allegations, Explains More of His Detailed Physiological Gameplan


The more Georges St. Pierre talks about his strategy for B.J. Penn, the more I’m struck by how scientific it sounds.  Usually when you hear fighters talk about their gameplan it’s vague classics like ‘push the pace’ or ‘take the fight to him.’  Basically, it’s stuff that is one step up from an inspirational slogan.

But GSP?  He practically steals your medical records in order to figure out how to beat you.  Just look at what he told about Penn’s physical strengths and weaknesses:

B.J. Penn, you were talking about his guard, he has very flexible legs. Another thing is, because he has very flexible hips, it made his thoracic cage more susceptible to being weak. That’s why I was working a lot of elbows to the body. On the ground I was putting my elbow in his stomach to make him tired. And a lot of knees. It was my game plan.
I know a lot of doctors. It’s a fact. When somebody has flexible hips, normally he has a weak thoracic cage. His bones are weaker. It’s science. And with B.J., that’s the case. He has very flexible hips, so his core is weaker than somebody who has normal hips. That’s why I was attacking the body a lot. People, when they fight B.J., they try to hit the head. But B.J. has very thick skin and he moves his head very well and his reaction time is very fast. He can move his head standing up, but his body never moves. I was targeting the body a lot.

As for allegations that he was greased up in the fight, GSP says he “cant’ believe” the Penn camp considered filing a formal complaint (though word now is that they’ve decided against it), that he’s not a cheater and will prove it in court if he has to, and also that it wasn’t any artificial substance that thwarted Penn’s high guard:

I was training that. I was training when his legs come up to posture up. And when he got the position to keep my head always over his head. By staying in a vertical position his leg was naturally going to go down. If I stayed flat, he would have been able to bring his leg up. But I stayed in a vertical position.
To tell you the truth, I think it’s normal to have a winning attitude in life. When I lose, I always try to figure out why I lose. But the problem with B.J., he tries to figure out why he loses, but he doesn’t focus on himself. He focuses on the other person. When I lost the fight I focused on what I did wrong. I didn’t focus on what I cannot change. B.J., instead of focusing on things he can change to make himself better, he tries to focus on things he doesn’t have any control over, and tries to find some excuse that it’s not up to him. It’s really an excuse. He should focus on things that he can change about himself in the fight to make himself better. That would be a better approach for him.

Man, is it me or is GSP the master of the very polite burn?  Lines like, “I was not impressed by your performance,” and then here he manages to say that B.J. Penn would rather make excuses than become a better fighter, but he does so in such a way that it actually sounds like sincere advice.  

If he ever gets tired of fighting he could rent himself out as a professional deliverer of bad news.  If GSP comes in and tells you that you’re fired, or that your girlfriend thinks you guys should just be friends, or that you have cancer, he’ll probably phrase it so that you think your life has just been improved.  That’s a talent, people.  You can’t teach it.

I don't know much about fighting, but I do know that American sucks balls. So whatever an American has said is probabaly wrong.

Oh and I forgot to mention... BJ Penn is very, very flexible. It comes from all the practise sucking his own little dick.

I think that you are the real faggot here. Thin about it, spending your own personal free time to conjuring up gay anal sex stories to explain why your favorite fighter got absolutely DESTROYED!

And if you are an American, your whole retarded country has been getting ass raped for the last 8 years by W. Ohhh yeah, you know you loved it. All you faggot Americans are glad to Barack "Hussien" Obama as your leader, so you can get some black dick in your diet! Choke on that.

If BJ Penn had a huge issue with this "supposed" vasoline infraction, he should have voiced his concern during the fight. He had no problem crying outloud like a little bitch when GSP grabbed his shorts, which he shouldn't have done, I admit. But hey, shit happens in the octagon; eye pokes, rabbit punches, groin shots, grabbing the cage and headbutts are common. When a guy gets poked in the eye or takes a knee to the groin, if the ref doesn't see it it is his job to speak up for himself.

People say BJ Penn's corner warned the commissioners to watch GSP, what they should have said is; " I want him wiped down before every round, he's got Vasoline on his back". But it is alot easier to complain after the fact. I guess Blow Job BJ didn't want that title so bad afterall. And GSP is a quitter? Ha. Who quit this match bitch? When was the last time you saw someone go to their corner and not come back out to fight. It wasn't the doc that stoppped the fight, it was his corner. That shows you the kind of fighter BJ really is, going on vacation, fucking around... basically being a typical lazy american when he really should have been getting ready to beaten down and thrown around like a 90lb girl for five rounds.

You Americans are the real quitters. Oh, George W. committed treason against our country... Boo Hoo. Now let's forget it. That shit would NEVER fly in Canada. If you all fought as hard against the tyranny in your own country as you do against a tiny, insignificant amount of vasoline on a guys back. You would be doing a fuck of a lot better over there.

It's staggering how ignorant and blind fanboys can be.

Your comments are a fine example as to why you have amounted to nothing in this life...and never will. Fukking loser.
Gotta love QUITTERS- February 4, 2009 at 10:37 am
good one ya look at all the damning evidence oh wait BJ can't untill the swelling goes down. Maybe if all you BJ lovers would have let him train instead of having gay sex parties and actually cooked the pigs instead of stuffing them he would have tried to avoid the punches instead of blocking them with his face.

And of course the redneck has to indicate that being a Cdn somehow indicates that he can't possibly beat an American at fighting. Y'know, since we beat your asses back during the Revolutionary War anyways...but that's another story...get with it bro, your only military loss was to Canadians. Sucks eh? Well if you don't count 'Nam which I don't really.

Actually, that was the War of 1812. Which Americans conveniently don't remember, but to be fair Canada didn't actually exist as a nation until 1867, so the Americans really lost to British colonial forces.

I think the entire welterweight division needs to lube up and settle this via Battle Royale.
lilpo0ts- February 4, 2009 at 7:05 am
canda beat US military? or did canada beat an army from 13 colonies consisting of 1100 men? LMFAO! canada couldnt sack build a bear workshop. the fuckin knicks could take canada armed with 2 footballs, a teddy rupskin and a switchblade comb.

You guys just won't let it die will you.
lilpo0ts- February 4, 2009 at 6:47 am
not everyone lies, jason miller was in the fight to lose to GSP, so was serra. why would they lie and in such an abundance. greg jackson camp is full of greasers, and he wants to make that bank roll for having champions. you can clearly see it on video. until the guy from CSI says otherwise gsp is just as much to blame as shaka zulu energy motivator

That made me laugh my ass off.

Good one

I guess GSP isn't all brawn...there's a brain in that body.

I was BJ's fan for this fight, because he's the scrappy underdog. I never thought of GSP as "the front runner", because it's pretty obvious the guy's entire life revolves around being the best at what he does. You can't hate on that...when someone works nonstop to achieve their goal.

I respect both guys...but really (really!) BJ fought a guy he should not have fought. Again, mad props for stepping up...and I don't know what he did to train or prepare, but it wasn't enough. GSP probably has no life other than the gym, eating, sleeping, and preparing for fights. And that's why he's one of the best fighters in the world.

"In the eyes of people who actually know what they are talking about," huh? So, you know for a fact that GSP is a closet homo, right? You know what I think...I think you are just as jealous of GSP as Penn is. You have every right to be, he's a real man and you're just some stick-o-shit sitting at you computer bitching about what you think you know. But, you don't know anything. Do us all a favor, suck some dick and die.
LukeTheDuke- February 4, 2009 at 4:11 am
I definitely like GSP a lot more than Penn. I'm pretty sure Georges would have suaver parties
Martin- February 4, 2009 at 3:16 am
i hate GSP, he is so cocky now, he is a UFC got a cheater..MMA sucks, needs to be more regulated /Martin in Sweden

lol. if you're saying GSP is gay, then i guess your tough guy bj penn just got beat the f*ck down by a memeber of the l.g.b.t community.

The best part is that the person screaming "holy shit queer cause he's built" is probably a fat fuck who can't get out of the door.

And yeah, he's built like the fucking Terminator because for him, that's how he does his fighting. GSP is a striker by original training. They don't teach you to learn how to pretzel yourself cause, y'know, that'd be so useful when you're practicing karate growing up.

And of course the redneck has to indicate that being a Cdn somehow indicates that he can't possibly beat an American at fighting. Y'know, since we beat your asses back during the Revolutionary War anyways...but that's another story...get with it bro, your only military loss was to Canadians. Sucks eh? Well if you don't count 'Nam which I don't really.

Anyways, the point I'm trying to say is you should try to man up and get to the gym so your gf can stop drooling when GSP comes on stage.

Gotta admit I almost laughed when I read that fag comment. Cause y'know, meanwhile the guy's watching a buncha 90% naked men rubbing and slamming themselves against each other and the ground and what not....really need to think about what you're saying....

Dear Astroglide:
I am not impressed with your ability to defend the high guard. I will in the future be trying other brands. I say good day to you sir.
BlowJob Penn- February 3, 2009 at 9:23 pm
Hey bra, after the fight, I went to my hotel room, laid down on my bed, and I fucked myself for about 20-30 minutes using the Vaseline scraped up on my inner thighs.
