Penn's camp alleges misdeeds with Vaseline by GSP's camp

B.J. Penn's camp has filed a complaint with the Nevada State Athletic Commission because Georges St. Pierre's camp allegedly put Vaseline on his back between the first and second rounds. The alleged Vaseline likely made exactly no difference in the outcome of the fight, and it's not GSP's fault as much it is his corner's. So that begs the question -- why do it? GSP was beyond dominant in beating Penn, and he didn't need to be rubbed down in Vaseline to win.

Dana White was pretty disgusted with the allegations:

"If a guy was intentionally putting Vaseline on a guy's back, he should never corner a mixed martial arts fight again."

The NSAC will now investigate, and White said that it's out of his hands. The fighters could have been covered in Crisco and St. Pierre still would have won by TKO, but if these charges are proven to be true, it will cast a pall over GSP's win.
