The “Great UFC Vaseline Scandal of 2009” rages on. BJ Penn’s people may or may not have filed a formal complain with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) so check in to if Georges St. Pierre was all greased down for their fight a few weeks ago.
GSP ain’t having none of it, and took the airwaves…
“One of my corner men did use an energy technique to help with my breathing that involves rubbing my back. He’s also done this in my previous fights. If there was any Vaseline left on his hand after he put it on my face, it was unintentional, and I do not believe it made the slightest difference in the outcome of the fight. Of course it’s up to the UFC, but I would be happy to offer B.J. a second rematch.”
Penn has accepted the challenge, and while there’s no word as to if my personal savior Dana White would be interested, he knows money when he sees it and I’m sure his pupil’s have turned into dollar signs as we speak.
There’s just that pesky issue of both fighters next opponents, Thiago Alves and Kenny Florian. Alves has said recently that his title shot against GSP is set for July…which just so happens to be UFC 100. I say, put the Penn vs. Florian fight on the show too. If both St. Pierre and Penn are victorious, set the match for December.
And while we’re booking UFC 100, I’d throw on the Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson fight, Forest Griffin vs. Lyoto Machida to determine the next contender for 205, and Anderson Silva defending the middleweight title against whoever is next to lose to him.
Hmmm…if GSP wins and BJ Penn loses, AND the UFC still wants a megafight, AND Anderson Silva is going to be there anyway…St. Pierre vs. Silva in December?
