Matt Hughes Revives GSP Greasing Talk

(Go ‘head and tell Matt Hughes he don’t know the difference between sweat and grease.  Wish a motherf*cker would.)

As sick as we all are about the Georges St. Pierre greasing allegations (and we are…seriously) Matt Hughes has more to say on the subject.  More accurately, he has the same thing to say about them as he said originally, he just wants you to know that he really meant it and wasn’t simply piling on for the hell of it.

On a post to his blog today Hughes wrote:

I usually don’t do this, but I will this time.  When I talk about a topic one week, it usually doesn’t get brought up again.  I think a lot of people need to go back and reread last week’s blog, including GSP.  At no point did I accuse Georges of putting grease on himself.  All I said was that he felt slick.  I’ve wrestled over a thousand matches, fought 50 opponents, all I’ve ever done in life is wrestle and compete with other people.  With all that experience, do you think I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between sweat and something else?  Last week when I got to Florida, I was in the elevator with Robbie, I said “Robbie did you hear about GSP?”  He said, “No, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”  I then said that BJ accused him of being slippery, Robbie looked right up at me and said, “That’s what you said after Anaheim.”  Also, I’ve had several people close to me around my town who have come up to me and said the same thing.  I’ve nothing against GSP, I even think he’s somewhat a likable guy.  Some people are trying to say that I’m making this personal and that’s just not true at all.  The reason I didn’t bring this up before was because I didn’t know there was anything to him being slick.  With all the other guys coming out and saying the same thing, I just wanted to be true to myself, and to everybody else, and say that there could be some validity there.  –matt

So, things we should take away from this latest missive…

1. Hughes didn’t accuse GSP of putting grease on himself. 

2. He merely said he felt as if he had some grease-like substance on him that wasn’t sweat.

3. Matt Hughes is a guy who knows his sweat.

4. It ain’t personal, baby.

5. Georges St. Pierre is “somewhat a likable guy.”

Yep, that about sums it all up.  Class dismissed.

No. Hughes is just a stupid jackass hick and a total wash-out as a fighter, that's all.

i have lost all respect for bj penn and now i put matt hughes in the same place as a poor loser.

the fact is yes gsp his corner may of f---ed up by not cleaning the hands after greasing his face and then putting the fingers on his back. that is on his corner not gsp.

what is a joke is the fact that never has such been stated publicaly by any fighter prior and what is even more of a joke where would it have made any difference in the penn fight or the last 2 hughes fights.

Matt hughes could not even tap the last time, and the time before he went to sleep, in all 3 fights when was there any time when one if they questioned gsp and grease could say did you see that.

the fact is gsp dominated in ways that embarrased bj and hughes because of their big egoes and even bigger mouths.

i dont see the ufc getting into this crap, nor do i see gsp trying to defend such and thats is because he knows he kicked their asses with the tools he has including his brain ie a strategy.

BJ penn called gsp out, called him a bitch, a quiter much more. At no time did BJ look like he should have even been in there with gsp.

Matt hughes has his titlle of the greatest wealter weight at risk and as bad ass as he was never have i seen one scream they are tapping. I have heard hughes bad mouth gsp too just because gsp is a class act.

I dont even think hughes will fight serra today and bj could not even do a post fight interview because of the beating he took for the first time.

BJ was cut for the first time i remeber, i believe his nose was broke, bj quit as i believe he asked for the doctor and the reality is GSP did it his way at will. Only once when BJ was in the guard which was not for long could he have used the geasing as an excuse and in my mind not once did he have a postion on gsp.

What is interesting is you dont hear John finch crying foul. Finch just and big and strong as gsp admitted to his mistakes and also said it clearly after " he under estimated the strengt of GSP " I dont think BJ or Hughes today could take Finch and in my mind BJ did not deserve that title shot against GSP beyond the hype and his ego. Boo hoo if he had to get a reality check and boo hoo if his talent cant carry him places he should not be.

Anyone who can look at a face, anyone who understands the minds games would know after the prime time show bj showed his weakness in stating he said a lot, he was almost in tears saying he had to win. He did not look confident in the octagon, before the fight or at any time during, gsp did without question. Boo hoo if bj got what he deserved,,,,,,,,,,,carma is a bitch and this shit he is pulling now is going to bight him in the ass again if he under estimates K flo who deserves the shot and is more than ready for it.

BJ penn has no respect for anyone in the ufc and this is his greatest weakness. Its about time that the someone in his camp tells him to shut his big mouth, respect his apponent and train to fight as most do with a strategy.

BJ is going to be hard pressed to keep the belt at 155 if his attitude does not change. I believe k flo will beat BJ and that will be the last of BJ in the ufc.

Well if Hughes is saying that gsp was slippery then maybe he should get another rematch so gsp can kick his pussy ass for a third time!!!

@ Jugger- February 12, 2009 at 8:25 am
You're missing the point. If GSP was caught taking drugs, and Hughes complained about the smell of crack on GSP's breath, people would understand. But if BJ is making bitch ass excuses for a fight he handily lost, and THEN Hughes jumps in to try and ruin GSP's name...then people call Hughes on it. If BJ or Hughes had put GSP in a killer submission, where GSP miraculously got out, then they'd have a case. In reality, they both got their faces punched in, and vasilene had nothing to do with that.

Does it really matter since you can still get his message anyway? You didn't need to go out of your way to point out that he missed a letter. That's what's really moron-ic.

Is Hughes really that hard to spell.
What a moron.
Anonymous- February 12, 2009 at 5:32 am

he's full of shit trying to convince every1 he's objective. All you need to do is him jump for joy w/ a huge smile on his face in the stands after serra koed GSP to know that.

if you read his book it becomes obvious the guy's an egomaniac who holds grudges; he's also a two-face.
Krazy Kracker- February 11, 2009 at 10:23 pm
"I’ve had several people close to me around my town who have come up to me and said the same thing."....Matt had a bunch of people from Backwoods, Midwest USA come up to him and say "GSP felt slick when we fought too!!"?...
RjjR- February 11, 2009 at 9:22 pm
live close to his gym in granite city, ive even went over there to train with him, and guess what? he is still a douche bag, you would think since im coming in there and thinking about possibly throwing down about 155 a month he would be nice...nope.. nope he isnt

If you read Matt Hughes Blog today he has made a change. Originally, Robbie said "Anaheim". Anaheim was BJ Penn. Today the post has been changed to read "Sacramento". This is where the GSP/Hughes actually fight took place. How are we to believe him if he cannot get the details right?

I brought this up on Matt's blog and my comments were erased by the moderators. Very suspicious!!!

Goodbye credibility....

Your Fucking Father- February 11, 2009 at 1:00 pm

Dude are you a complete fucking moron? Dont answer that because I already know the answer. I hate how you stupid fucking liberals will bring politics into anything, John M wanted to close the UFC before he knew anything about it, after it had rules and was sanctioned he was ok with it, he admitted that in an interview.
And as far as new era, what era is that? Where the guy leading the IRS does not have to pay taxes but you do, give me the Republicans anyday. At least you know where those guys stand.

Hey Ben...or Ben, ok so you had to write it, dont mean we have to read it. I didnt read anything that anyone posted about it.
I dont care, so if you are gonna write and others will post on it, then heres mine, NOBODY GIVES A FLYING FUCK ABOUT MATT HUGHES. there ya go, done now.
rampaging- February 11, 2009 at 11:45 am
Matt.... how about admitting the fact that GSP is one of the best fighters and those who can't beat him need to come up with accusations to tarnish his image. He kicked the living sh*t out of some of the best 'has-beens' including you--of the UFC. Acknowledge it.
BuckWild- February 11, 2009 at 8:22 am
Lets face it, there is nothing else no one can do about this. Nothing will happen to GSP. He will go on to defend his title in his next match, the cut man will be the only person allowed to apply the vas and nothing else can be said about it when GSP is still dominating his weight class. Who is he going to fight next ? Maybe a contender in his own class ? If so, he will probably pound him out just like he did BJ and there won't be any excuses.

Now if he fight the Spider he better be taking those baby oil capsules the night before ! ; )
LAS- February 11, 2009 at 8:11 am
You are grossly oversimplifying this lilpoots. The reason this isn't a clear-cut case of "cheating" is that this was a blind-spot in the rules, in addition to the fact that its unclear how much the outcome of the fight was affected. That's why Keith Kizer has noted several times that the NSAC has little recourse beyond giving a stern warning to GSP's cornermen.

Not to mention, BJ Penn is notorious for making excuses when he loses, and more often than not those crying "CHEAT!" in this case have been clear-cut BJ Penn fans.
lilpo0ts- February 11, 2009 at 7:38 am
regardless of how you guys want to take it, gsp cheated. what matt was trying to say was gsp didnt do the greasing his cornerman did. without knowing which one its kind of dumb to say his whole corner. matts an asshole yes..but you guys are being stupid about the cheating thing. cheating is cheating and this wouldnt have drug on as long as it did if the fans were like oh shit, its on video he did cheat he should be punished and we should move on. thats what it should have been like 2 weeks ago. noone said it would have changed the outcome of any fight, but that isnt the point. fuck it why not just have rules for the lesser fighter. anderson silva vs leites, just let the spider come out with a not even tired of these lubrigate articles i think its funny how it doesnt matter what happens GSP is in noway cheating and shouldnt be punished but the opponenet should be punished for stepping forward. matt hughes should have said something during the fight? why so the majority of fans could say it was only because he was losing. turn a blind eye you guys are acting like asses.

Hughes is just trying to get back out there. God knows he can't beat GSP in a fight.

Jugger should change his name to Chugger , because he obviously likes Chugging BJ Penn's Cock and Balls.
Jugger- February 11, 2009 at 7:10 am
BJ Penn comes out directly after his fight and accuses GSP of greasing. Every body pisses on BJ and calls him a whiner.

Matt Hughes admits to his corner during his fight that GSP feels "slippery" but doesn't say a word; doesn't file a complaint, doesn't make a stink. Only gives his opinion after the vasiline hits the fan years later. Every body pisses on Matt and calls him a whiner.

It's lose, lose.

A word to fighters in the future. If you suspect your opponent is cheating ("intentionally" or "unintentionally") don't EVER EVER EVER speak up about it. The fans will piss all over you. Keep your head down and your mouth shut.

The Doug- February 11, 2009 at 7:01 am
"I’ve got nothing against GSP, I even think he’s somewhat a likable guy."

That's as close as Matt Hughes ever gets to saying, "I love you."
