Hopeful Wishing: GSP vs. BJ Penn 3, Summer 2009

BJ Penn


BJ Penn.com

“For the past several days I have been reading statements made by St. Pierre and Greg Jackson about our fight on January 31. St. Pierre claims that he is ‘not a cheater’ and that he and Greg Jackson will have ‘no problem with a rematch in the summer of 2009.’ To the untrained eye the grease might not look like much, but every grappler knows the effect that it has. Being able to apply your submissions and sweeps or just being able to hold on to your opponent to defend yourself from being hit is absolutely critical! There is a reason why you are not allowed to put grease anywhere on your body except for the area around your eyes. Because of the grease applied to St.Pierre’s Body the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s executive director, Keith Kizer has stated that the Penn-St. Pierre fight ‘definitely wasn’t fair.’ I hereby accept George St. Pierre and Greg Jackson’s challenge for a fight in the summer 2009. Lets call Dana now and set it up.”

BJ Penn is serious about lobbying for an instant rematch with Georges St. Pierre after the Nevada State Athletic Commission witnessed GSP’s corner man possibly lubing (likely unintentially) in between rounds. Georges St. Pierre is currently rumored to be fighting Thiago Alves at UFC 100. It is hard to believe the UFC will sideline a Thiago Alves title fight in favor of a BJ Penn rematch, especially since Penn was completely dominated at UFC 94.

    I hope this happens, and I hope BJ actually shows up for this fight and takes his training seriously.

    Never mind alves, what about ken-flo? I think BJ is ducking him and knows threes more money to be made with a gsp rubber match. Tito Ortiz Jr.

    "Georges St. Pierre is currently rumored to be fighting Thiago Alves at UFC 100. It is hard to believe the UFC will sideline a Thiago Alves title fight in favor of a BJ Penn rematch, especially since Penn was completely dominated at UFC 94".

    I wont believe a damn thing about BJ wanting to rematch GSP until its set in stone..i honestly think this is all hype and Bull Shit on BK's part…BJ likes to talk smack and due to the way he was completley dominated by GSP i would think it would be silly to even consider a rematch as again the so called greasing matter its not like GSP had an unfair advantage over BJ seriously BJ didnt slip or have trouble pulling Rubber guard…GSP was just the one that countered BJ and dominated him…this will be a waste of money for the UFC and veiwers to pay money to buy this fight if it does happen again…if it happens it should not be a main event fight as GSP will crush him.

    I don't think people are really going to buy that the small amount of vaseline was the reason BJ got whooped. Noone really wants to see it so unless GSP gets into trouble, it won't happen. Theres no money. BJ should fight Kenflo. I'd like to see that.

    I could see the vaseline making a difference, especially since the fight was completely on the ground, and BJ couldn't reverse shit. I would watch it again. It is hysterical to see all the GSP fans freak out when something is claimed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the most unbiased people watching the fights.

    Penn doesn't deserve a rematch with GSP. He was dominated and was destroyed. He should retire after talking all that shit and being completly destroyed. He is a joke and is trying to make excuses for his failure. BJ Penn has to be ranked #1 on most hated mma fighter right now. Thiago Alves and Kenny Florian have waited long enough for their respective title shots and Penn is a very selfish man for trying to get a rematch. One word association: BJ Penn= LOSER!

    Penn should ashamed of himself and this shows what kind of person he really is. He knows George is a stand up guy and wouldn't cheat, this somebody that called GSP a friend and to now try and smear his reputation like this is unbelievable. Well Penn you know you were beat bad and you never even close to be able to getting any kind of hold on him and this is your pathetic way of trying to get another shot. I know for a fact GSP will fight you again the difference this time will be he's fighting a dishonest opponent and someone who doesn't deserve an ounce of respect so if you thought you got beat last time LOL. Man how do youlook at yourself in the mirror ya spoiled rich punk.

    Penn was completely dominated..Bj jas lost 2 times already to GSP…GSP man handle bj like a little bitch..i hope ken flow beats the fuck out of gsp

  14. tom

    February 7, 2009 at 3:03 am

    this just shows that BJ is a poor sport and not a real champ, liking like a little bitch cryiing about everything because he was talking all that shit about how he was going to kill gsp but GSp mained him eat his words…

    BJ we all watched the PRIMETIME show…GSP worked 6 to 7 dyas aweek and never took a trip and days off..BJ went out of town and party and didnt work half as hard for the fight and we all now GSP won the fight

  15. Steve

    February 7, 2009 at 3:03 am

    I'd pay to see it! If you watch the video's you'll see GSP squeezing out of the guard in some unusual ways. And BJ didn't start this controversy, it was the commissioner, Chuck Lidell, and Dana White that noticed it during the figh.

    Not only that, but BJ is now the 3rd or 4th fighter that has spoken to this. You call GSP an "honest" fighter, but how do you know this? Because a television show cuts some film together showing him as being one? And people say BJ is lazy why? Because someone spliced film to show him as such?

    Lets see a rematch, with no shoulder and back rubs.

    Good fucking call Steve. I agree completely. Why is it still considered BJ crying when the athletic commission is the one that are calling the shenanigans. BJ never said he was lubed, just that he was slippery. The athletic commission said they saw the lubing.

  17. Digger

    February 7, 2009 at 1:01 pm

    That's not how it went at all, it was Penns corner that came out with this we know what happened in the ring when they freaked at the corner man but you plainly see he didn't rub his back with vaseline. As far as anybody else like Huges or who ever else if their only coming out and saying this now it's BULLSHIT!! if this is what they thought after fighting him they would of come out with it then. Also they don't need to splice film of penn to show how lazy he is compared to how other fighters train, look at the shape of the guy who supposed to train so hard now and look at the shape he was in 4-5yrs. ago.

  18. Training03

    February 7, 2009 at 3:21 pm

    I totally agree with Nate Fury. BJ Penn should retire instead of accusing gsp of cheater and talking shit.

  19. STEVEO

    February 7, 2009 at 5:07 pm

    all i really care about is that if bj wants to fuck around and fight in whatever division he feels like he needs to give up the damn belt. there are plenty of guys in line in that division that deserve a shot while he is out trying to settle personal vendettas. GSP had everything to lose and nothing to gain and Penn had everything to gain and nothing to lose. But, you lost BJ. You shouldnt get a rematch, get in the ring with kenflo and stop trying to be the first guy to hold every belt in the ufc at once. Soon he will be calling out lesnar and mir. what a tool

  20. hannah

    February 7, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    bj is totally insane..he might really need to be check-up

    i suspect that he got hit a lot and his brain stopped working like normal person ..well actually i wonder he has one.. i dont know why dana is favoring him . bj is nothing but just trash !!

  21. RELOC

    February 7, 2009 at 9:43 pm

    I do think this match should be a better one, but I think gsp might win again on this one. Why? because bj might not be able to handle his strength. well bj took vacation and gsp used lube. should be another big hit cause it seems unfair for both fighters. i would buy it.

  22. Sean in WI

    If this fight does happen BJ better not take any days off training, because I was really disappointed in him; he is a really good fighter, but needs to work hard as GSP in training.

  23. hitori

    all of you who are talking shit probably aren't even fighters. let's see you guys fight someone greased up. even dana white saw the greasing going on. it was not an excuse on the part of bj. step into a ring and fight before you act like you know what you're talking about.

  24. STEVEO

    February 12, 2009 at 12:10 am

    My favorite part of this website is when everyone who chats here acts like they are fucking chuck liddell cause they got their ass kicked in somebodys basement 13 years ago. You don't have to be a fighter to understand its hard to fight someone when there slippery. Mind Blowing concept. The best part is no one cares bj ran his mouth and maybe he should have been training instead of going on vacation before the biggest fight of his career. But who am I to voice my opinion, I don't fight.

  25. tom

    February 12, 2009 at 12:50 am

    yea stevo… bj was talking mad shit. saying how he was going to kill gsp, BUT gsp walked throw bj

  26. J-Furm!!

    February 12, 2009 at 12:52 am

    I have to agree with Stevezy….how are u goin to pull off a triangle if the guy can slip rite the fuck out…either way i think GSP woulda kicked the shit outa him….Penn isnt on his level…obviously errbody seen how much harder St Pierre was training compared to Penn

  27. sugarshay

    February 13, 2009 at 5:10 am

    All this greasing talk is pretty b.s. If you watch the fight again you will see how gassed BJ is after even the 1st round. On only one occasion did BJ really throw up maybe a small attempt at a triangle, but GSP POSTURED out of if, he didn't slide his neck and back out. The residual vasoline that might have come off of Nurse's hands from GSP brow would be minimal, extremely minimal. The amount of sweat on GSP's back would be more of a problem than the tiny amount of residue from Nurse's fingers. The altheletic commision is dealing with this because they have to deal with complaints and I don't think I've ever heard of someone talking about greasing before in MMA. And if you want to make it more fair have the ref before the round starts check the fighters back and shoulders for grease. In boxing the ref will stop the fight if there's excessive vaso on a fighters face. Face it BJ you got fucking whooped, you talked shit, thought you could beat him on talent, but he's too strong and conditioned. Anyone who would like to disagree please do… Want to talk about cheating how bout Margarito's trainers hardening his hands. That's some real shit… Fuck this BJ bullshit. I used to respect him but he's always had an excuse

    How did BJ & his crew not notice the "vaseline" after each of the rounds? watch the fight & u will C BJs hands all over GSP's back, top of the shoulders and head/face in the 1st round. Trying 2 prevent the take downs up against the cage, yet BJ had no grease on him or his hands/gloves…… on the ground if BJ's legs/feet sliped b/c of the "large amount" of vaseline on GSP's back then Y wasnt BJ covered in vaseline after the rounds of being on his back?!? How did this vaseline that is almost impossible to remove without making a big effort dissapear?!? BJs legs would have been covered & he as well as his corner would have noticed it, seen it, felt it on his legs but they didnt complain…. weird, I wonder y no complaint until only after the fight was doen & BJ was made a fool, & who do u think "noticed" the "greasing incident" BJ's good old buddy Chuck, what a shock the 2 BF's of Dana looking out 4 one another, any xcuse is a good xcuse 4 Y BJ lsot the fight….. all except the truth that is.

    So how did BJ not feel the vaseline on his legs after each round? since it makes u sooo slippery & shit, how did it dissapear after each round? mind blowing isnt it?!? Bjs hands were all over GSPs body especially in the 1st round go back & watch it, BJs hands all over GSP's back, then on the ground for the 2nd, 3rd & 4th rounds his legs would have been covered, yet none was noticed by BJ or his trainers. Also if u read the report GSP sent they had 2 pros who train with MMA & Boxing fighters their whole life "testified" by sending in a report about the allegations BJ made about the grease, one guy whos a black belt BJJ world champ, said that BJ never uses a rubber guard & 2 say that was BJs plan 4 the GSP 2 fight is BS & made up, he also said BJ has never caused any damage from the bottom while attempting to use rubber guard let alone win the fight, he also made it a point to say BJ has never finished of submitted anyone from the bottom, yet this was BJs plan 2 beat a bigger, stronger & better fighter lol, BJ ur plan of making xcuses R starting 2 comeback 2 bite u in the ass hahaha I love it, those straws u keep reaching 4 BJ r sure getting thinner each day. The guy who said all that about BJ & his "rubber guard" plan 4 a fight was BS……… I JUST THOUGHT ABOUT THIS roght now……… b4 BJ was interviewed he stated that BJ had no game plan going into the fight & that BJ was just going to roll with the punches. LOL BUSTED U LAZY F@T ASS Hawaiian loser…… so BJ had no game plan but then after the fight the "gameplan" BJ had was 2 use rubber guard he never uses as his game plan, which one is it BJ?!? Back to what the BJJ "master" said about the "grease" BJs making up 4 y he lost……… says if GSP had the grease on him that GSP would be just as much in a disadvantage as BJ b/c the grease would make GSP slippery & GSP would be sliding all over BJ while on the ground & then GSP would not b able to work his game plan of controlling on the ground, b/c he would be slippery & would be able to stay on top without sliding everywhere……….. ohhhh O BJ, ur plan is falling apart, I guess BJs going 2 cry about GSP over training & training 2 much 4 a fight…….. since GSP was training since sept thats illegal b/c BJ only trains for a few weeks & runs under water with rocks, which is real anaerobic according to the master of all training BJ FAT ASS PENN!!!!

    I dont think the grease made GSP faster & owned BJ on the feet, nor did the vaseline help GSP pass guard time after time, thats all skill & hard work. Also if u watch the last 12 UFC's u will always hear Joe Rogan talking about trying 4 a sub after the 1st few mins of a fight b/c of the major factor sweat causes to make BOTH fighters slippery not just one, he even says that no matter how good u R in BJJ, that sweat is a major reason y people do not submit as aesily as u would think, unless u have knee wraps, ankle…. (something) etc Rogan even said sweat was very likely the reason of Y BJ couldnt keep his "high guard" & the fact GSP practiced & practiced 2 prevent any guard or rubbers lol BJ was going to attempt. Watch the fight & u will C GSP poster everytime BJs legs slide & GSP also said when a fighter is on top, to help the fighter on top not get cought in a sub, u bring ur head right above the head of the guy on the ground…… which makes complete common sence, jsut think about it, if ur face is parallel with the bottom guys head he cant keep u in control let alone a submission attempt.

    BJ PENN has lost all credibility & any respect I had 4 such a pathetic, ignorant, rude & 2 cocky 4 his own good moron. 4 a guy whos suppose 2 b this amazing fighter, he shows very very lil respect towards his oponents & BJ brings a bad rep with his attitude & work ethic.

    4 all of u BJ fans, u dont find it disrespectful that ur fav fighter doesnt give a shit about u, if he did he would train 4 his fans & 4 not letting u all waste ur $$$ 2 C him fight out of shape & especially after all of that trash talk he said he didnt even back up 1 word & now hes using these patheitc xcuses 4 y he lost, when the real reason/problem has always & will always be there in front of BJ……. BJ him-self is his own downfall. Way 2 add all that Xtra pressure on urself BJ, like the fight wasnt hype or big enough right?!? u had 2 put all that xtra pressure on urself to beat & own GSP hahahahah again good plan BJ u idiot!!!! All BJs fans gave him what he has money wise & materialistic things as well……. the fans buy the PPV, buy the tickets 2 see them fight, buys their merchandise with BJ.COM on it and so on etc etc etc

    YET BJ doesnt give a shit, if he did he would train like a normal fighter, let alone champ. BJ's such a good role model, train when u want to & take vacations during training, its what real lazy asses do!!! OHHH ya & if u get owned/embaressed make up Xcuses so it doesnt make u look as bad…… but u have 2 make sure those xcuses R credible, something BJ hasnt matered yet. If u dont win b/c ur lazy, then blame the other guy 4 cheating & pretend u want to fight him again.

    BJ ojnly agreed 2 that GSP vs BJ 3 fight is simply to save face & 2 show BJs not afraid 2 fight GSP again hahahaha eventhough we all know hes terrified 2 get in the ring VS GSP again, I cant blmae him, but 2 pretend u want to fight him again is even pathetic & low, even 4 u BJ!!! I guess BJ wants people 2 think hes not scared & that he lost only bc GSP "cheated" hahahahah BJ u sure are a top class ass hole & idiot, cant wait 2 C Florian own u, since hes working with GSP & Jackson hahaha have fun with that BJ, think about what strategy is Florian going 2 use & hes training with a guy who just owned him big time, lol BJ will only b thinking about what Florian & them R training 4, lol BJs DONE!!!! BJ also said Florian emailed BJ about GSP being "greased up" 4 his fight VS BJ, lol now how in the fuck did Florian find out?!? if noone else has? BJs full of shit & I woulndt believe 1 word that comes out of that lazy fat ass idiot's mouth. Florian also asked BJ 4 the email but BJ cant seem to find it hahahah pathetic all the way BJ, WOW!!!! I'm embaressed 4 U & ur family, especially ur daughter.

    ***If BJ trained half as much as he does trash talking & making an ass out of himself, BJ would B in great shape.

    bj penn is a sore loser and a crybaby. I watched the fight thoroughly and whatever grease was there (if any) had no impact on the fight. bj blowjob penn got his fat out of shape as kicked and he is a baby. HE BROUGHT HIS MOMMY to the commision to try and get gsp arrested to the full extent of the law. he is a loser and no one respects him now. i just hope he doesnt try to avoid fighting ken flo and i hope kenny kicks his ass and gets the belt. he deserves it more then this piece of dog shit.

    alot of you have bs to say about bj penn when he actually worked and trained hard to where he's at right now. i don't really see any fans or big mouths training hard to eve get where they're at. not really a big fan for either fighters but if it's written and marked for regulation rules with vaseline or grease on body. bj penn does deserve a second chance in the fight. although he did get punched around and tossed back and forth. i wonder what the outcome will take. i think bj penn just got a beating but if you compare bj penn to patrick cote then thats a fucking laugh. patrick cote just sucks. kenny florian just a skinny fighter who's never fought good fighters ever. chuck lidell is just another fallen warrior from ufc that needs some time way from the octagon for a change. machinda and evans should be a good fight!! now for the fans with bisping against henderson. I LAUGH TOO HARD. bisping will not stand anywhere close with hendo. that match is already uneven. bisping could not knock out chris leben. not ONCE!! so for anyone that thinks bisping is going to just smash henderson. THINK AGAIN!!
