Georges St. Pierre's Big Win Brought To You By Vaseline?

Illustration for article titled Georges St. Pierres Big Win Brought To You By Vaseline?

Georges St. Pierre crushed B.J. Penn to become the best pound-for-pound fighter in mixed martial arts—even though a couple of those pounds might have been grease.


Penn, the UFC lightweight champ, failed to answer the bell after getting pounded for four rounds by the welterweight king at UFC 94 in Las Vegas. Penn actually made a trip to the hospital after doctors and his corner men determined that multiple blows to the head and body are hazardous to one's health. However!

After the fight, Penn's people filed a formal complaint with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, because they say that St. Pierre's people rubbed Vaseline on his back between rounds one and two. I don't think that makes knees to the chest any more painful, but that sort of thing is just not done! Plus, it's gross.


But at least it provides good post-game quotes like this:

""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"

Or was that a Stone Temple Pilots lyric?
