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

Video: BJ Penn Denies Calling Koscheck to Tell Him GSP’s On the Juice, But Says Josh Must Have Read His Mind

(Which was it, BJ, the grease or the steroids?)

Well, it didn’t take long for BJ Penn to expound on Josh Koscheck‘s revelations made this week that the former UFC lightweight champ called him up to give him the 411 about Georges St-Pierre’s secret to his muscular physique. 

Penn denies contacting Koscheck, but says if he had, he would have said exactly what he allegedly did, anyway.

"A lot of people have been writing into [] and asking me if I called Josh Koscheck about the GSP situation. And no, the answer is I have not talked to Josh Koscheck, but he must have been reading my mind. He must have mental telepathy," Penn said. "Koscheck is doing some great mental warfare, trying to get inside GSP’s head and as for how that goes, who cares? It’s none of my business; I could care less."

Really, BJ? It seems that you cared enough to make a video about it proving that your earlier apology for making allegations about GSP was as transparent as warm petroleum jelly.

Koscheck told MMAJunkie on Monday that "Penn and his camp" gave him a courtesy call to inform him that the UFC welterweight kingpin was on performance enhancing drugs such as steroids or human growth hormone. He also said in the interview that several other sources corroborated Penn’s story.

Reminds me of a guy who alleged that Kenny Florian called him up to say the same thing. My god, this UFC telephone game.

The oft loathed American Kickboxing Academy fighter went so far as to
request that there be Olympic-style drug tests implemented as part of the contract for the bout, similar to Floyd Mayweather’s stipulations for Manny Pacquiao

What a difference a couple days (and possibly a stern talking to by the boss) can make. Maybe the can of worms that setting an Olympic drug testing in MMA precedent would open up made him change his opinion, or at least suppress it publicly or maybe it really was a case of mental warfare, but for whatever reason Kos rescinded his allegations today in a media day for TUF 13. His apology was first posted by MMAFighting.

"Media stories on comments I made about rumors of GSP are in no way factual," Koscheck said. "I’m known for polarizing comments, and I got caught up in hyping TUF and our fight. I was wrong, and apologize to GSP for trying to invalidate his hard work and talent."

I’m not sure how requesting more stringent drug testing as a contract stipulation is polarizing. Seems pretty cut and dry to me what was meant by the statement.

True dat. Although to be fair, those two do seem to love Canada a lot. In fact they drop jokes in South park that only Canadians would get. Not sure where it comes from. 14 seasons later and those 2 still crack me up.

GSP's grammar and sentence structure suck but he is fluent in English (speaks with little hesitation) as well as fluent in kicking ass. Yo gotta give em Yanks credit. Despite being patriotic they are willing to support a fighter no matter here he's from if he has the right stuff. Koshchek would get more boos in his home town than GSP.

And that is just another reason among many, why as a Canadian, I do not tolerate much Yank bashing in my presence.

You beleive? It's a known fact. Look at the footage.

GSP was hitting the back of the head because BJ turned his head while GSP was punching...that's a good very defense technique for a BJJ master like BJ.

The short grab was cleary unintentional. Everyone should have stretchy shorts anyway, it's gay but it remove the whole "grab short" problem.

Look the fight again, BJ was knocked at the end of 4th round by that big forearm right before the bell. Lights were out for a few seconds.

If GSP is on drug, which is possible, then everyone is also. GSP is cut all year long and doesnt have the roid/hgh look at all.

I wouldn't be surprised that BJ is on juice himself...the guy hates to train.

^ Once again, amen to that!and yeah, GSP shows up likes he's been in a gym, BJ shows up looking like he's been at dunkin' donut's

BJ Penn apparently needed to come up with something new to say about GSP, because, "I can't beat him; he's too good" is getting closer to the tip of his tongue.

One, GSP doesn't even look like he juices. Sure, he's ripped as fuck, but that doesn't mean he juices, that means he controls his diet so the weight he cuts is pure water. You should try it sometime, BJ, instead of showing up for fights like you dunlopped over the front of your shorts.

Secondly, of all the people to talk shit about in the UFC, why pick the guy who gets the Wayne Newton award for hardest working MM-Artist year after year? In every fight I've GSP in, he has simply outworked his opponent every second of every round. If you're really in the mood to talk shit about someone, talk about Frankie Edgar. Since I doubt BJ is moving back up to 170 any time soon, he might as well keep his nose, and his mouth, out of the Welterweight ranks.

BJ must have filmed this segment in Stockton. Looks like there's a bag o' weed on the desk behind him.

Henhouse bullshit. OMGLOLWTF.

GSP ftw.

@MRuss - GSP can't even impersonate an english speaker, but when I read that I laughed so hard I pooped right in my pants. The mental image of a tv screen, split diagonally, with an intently listening Fraggle holding a phone in one corner, and a giggling GSP and his cronies in the other... Oh geez. I really hope someone can create an animated gif for that.

Dragno/I mean Drano. I never said I didn't like Pierre and I believe my exact comment was "beat the living S*&T out of BJ". I respect the guys game plan as of late as I do Rashad's but I have been watching the UFC since #1 and this shit gets expensive so I tend to enjoy watching the fighters who deliver my preferred entertainment. Watch the fight and watch george hit BJ in the back of his head over and over after being warned. Try not to focus on his body and watch the fight. He does it. REALLY. Anyways, I actually do like Pierre and do consider him one of the pound for pound greats. I still think BJ ranks above him until Pierre steps out of his weight class.
The best part (entertaining part) of the Rampage/Rashad fight was Rampage getting so close to what 99% of viewers wanted. The last GSP fights have all been a dominating ground game but I want to see some fucking fist/feet/knees fly. He knows he didn't perform the way he wanted in the Hardy fight and my opinion why is "getting knocked the fuckout syndrome". I know they are the ones in there, but were the ones buying their product/talent. This does not mean I don't like watching a technical ground war, but Pierre's so dominate in the take-down that it's really a one sided fight.
Just wanted to make sure you know I think Pierre's a great champion so you don't have to defend your man. I'm just hatin on Pierre with the spandax talk cause you all see when he walks in the ring, every female in the room gets rubbernecked. The same way most men (not sure about you) do when Arianny's name is mentioned.
Ya I'm somewhat biased towards BJ but I can accept his failures and faults. I'm a BJ fan cause I can relate to his style somewhat. Hawaii relaxin, beach life is good and his talent is undeniable when he comes through. I want to be a Pierre groupie cause he is a great champion but the fuckers a damn robot.

@ wifey

Your coworkers and my coworkers should have coffee some time.
dranokills- June 9, 2010 at 9:36 pm
hey whynot did you see the fight where GSP destroyed your boy BJ? did you see where he took him down, and pounded his head like a coconut? did you see where on the feet he out punched and outclassed BJ in every aspect of the fight?
Did you see BJ penn QUIT in the corner?
More talented my left nut!
BJ couldn't hold GSP's jock strap.
you can say he hit him in the back of the head all you want, the fact is after the fight BJ's back of the head looked ok, but his face was fucked up. the whole time GSP had him down he put that elbow up side his face and rubbed it all over his head, BJ couldn't stop him.
I'm glad he didn't try to ko BJ, the beating and continued abuse was so much better......and again BJ crying and quitting was classic for me.
What you call shady I call a damn good game plan.
I can't stand rashad, but his game plan to fight a boring defensive girly fight was the best thing he could do to get a W. GSP dominates people, and they can't stop him from doing his thing. If he's so much of a cheater why hasn't anyone proved it, all I have heard was talk, and mouth and crying like a bitch, but professionals have watched it, watched him, and no board or group of officials have ever said he personally cheated in any fight. It's just bitter fucking grapes to try and call GSP a cheat.
If you don't like him that's cool but find something based in reality to hate about him, like his accent or his bald head, but just cause he is head and shoulders above everyone in his weight class doesn't make him a cheater.
It's like the hate for Anderson Silva, hes a pompous, dancing fuck monkey but when he really fights nobody touches him, it don't make him a cheater, it makes him a beater.

BJ will forever be the more talented fighter than GSP. GSP just has more of an athletic drive to train. From what I remember from GSP's latest fights after getting knocked sideways by little Serra, the fear of getting hit has gotten to him. I know Serra may have got a lucky punch and it might have even hit Georges in the back of the head but only one time. Now for you BJ haters, go rewatch the beating that Pierre put on BJ again but this time count how many times he hit BJ in the back of the head. Not only was he warned multiple times but he kept doing it. Also watch how he grabs BJ's shorts when he can't take him down at first. I'm not saying he didn't beat the living S*&T out of BJ, I'm just pointing out the obvious video recorded cheating that your spandex champion needed and still couldn't knock BJ out. Then again, BJ has never been knocked out and has never been afraid of standing with anyone. Talk your talk but you can't erase Pierre's shady fight.

"These guys are a bunch of gossips, just like the crew of bitches I work with."

Exactly. Fighters should be seen and not heard.

I truly feel sorry for Dana White. He's no angel, but he's trying hard to legitimize MMA and expand the UFC while his employees do all they can to make the entire sport look like a goddamned circus. Talk about working at cross purposes . . .

@fatbelly, i was thinking more like One-eyed Willie from Goonies but in midget form.

@ rearnaked, I'd suspect something very similar to Gollum from Lord of the rings

i never liked Kos-Ross and im reallllly starting to hate BJ, maybe Kos and BJ are lovers? can somebody photo-shop a pic of what their "love child" would look like?
Shatski- June 9, 2010 at 6:46 pm
Wasn't there talk of GSP wrestling in the Olympics for Canada a while back? I mean, GSP himself said that, right? Gee, Kos, wonder if he'd have to submit to Olympic style testing there. Fucktard.
fatbellyfrank- June 9, 2010 at 6:32 pm
@ Keyser Soze, tell your son he's bang on the money, and he's earnt every cent of that raise
Keyser Soze- June 9, 2010 at 6:19 pm
Koscheck... mental warfare... seriously? I guess neither BJ or Koscheck give GSP any kind of credit for anything. The only two people dumb enough to believe or perpetuate these rumours are Penn and Koscheck themselves. Everyone else pretty much sees it for what it really is, hot air from sore losers.

If GSP himself put vaseline on his shoulders/back etc... then yes, you could call him a deliberate greaser. Having watched the fights again, he appeared to focused on his coach and trainers, not so much Phil Nurse. In the end, it had no effect on the outcome of the fight, GSP didn't hit him with his back or shoulders. Now if Phil Nurse put vaseline on his fists and elbows...

In any case, I think GSP will school Bob Ross like a 100lb pedo sentenced to general population.

My 12 year old son saw Koscheck and called him a flaming closet queer. My wife ragged on him for what he said. I gave him a raise in his allowance.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone may not be Canadian, but they wish they were.

I'ma reserve my commentary and wait for GSP to do his talking in the ocatagon with his skills.
