    let it go BJ. you are looking like a bigger loser everyday with this BS. you got beat bad and made to look a fool so now you try to ruin a real great fighters rep. if you fought him again he would retire you for good. you quit so you would not suffer the embarrassment of a 5th round KO. BJ is a good lightweight but i hope so bad that Kenflo helps shut this guy up for good.

    See I think Nurse came out as the bad guy on this one. He's stumbling over his words and it sounds like BJ is trying to make it so this never happens again. You can hate him as a person, but he is a great fighter and I hope he proves that once again with his next fight. All he has to do is work harder and he's one of the best, if doesn't want to do that your right just retire, because we don't want to see a half-assed BJ fighting in the cage.

    I agree this should never happen again but lets be fair this has gone on long enough, you made your point let it go. all the lube in the world wasn't gonna stop GSPs fist from pummeling your face til you quit. This makes you look even worse than the loss did. If he lubed against you then chances r he did it against Matt Serra too, oh wait Serra won the first fight. Stop making excuses as you have done your whole career and start eating you wheaties cause Kenflo is coming for your belt.

    bj is such a little bitch. i saw his mom is making statements about this also. dude you got your ass whooped, deal with it. i hope kenny takes his belt whenever they do fight.

    i predict ken-flow will submit the little rich spoiled brat mammas boy. can you believe his mom is making statements on his behalf how embarrassing, what a loser. i even watched the first fight between them a couple times and it was in fact a good decision call by the judges in favour GSP. he just cant take losing. BJ will probably get his own reality show one day every other loser out there has one.

    i agree with al on this one, i don't blame people for hating bj but that dosn't mean he is going to lose to kenny.

    Everyone acts like BJ is some massive bitch and he should shut up because he got laid out like one through the fight. Do any of you know anything about grappling? If GSP was lubed, it's not wonder BJ had no chance and got pummelled, he couldn't hold onto the guy. Half that fight was on the ground, everyone should be happy BJ is taking it this far, because if GSP is a greaser, then the only person who will beat him is someone who gets lucky like Serra and hits him with a good shot, because no one will be able to hold onto him and submit him on the ground, and the sport should not be like that.

    OKAY THIS JUST PROVES HOW MUCH OF A LITTLE BITCH AND PUSSY BJ IS HE GOT HIS MOMMY INVOLVED…HERE IS A EXERT FROM YAHOO SPORTS ON HIS MOMS COMMENTS…

    "During the rounds that followed, I was shocked to see that B.J. appeared to be helpless, as well as defenseless in his attempts to grasp and hold Georges St. Pierre while on the ground. I silently kept screaming and asking myself, 'What is wrong? Why can't B.J. defend himself?'

    "I was horrified with fear. My son was going to be seriously hurt because he could not defend himself.

    "The match ended in the fourth round, and B.J. Penn lost by TKO when his corner stopped the fight. After the fight was over, I was led immediately to B.J.'s locker room. And knowing that B.J. was seriously hurt, when I reached the locker I heard loud voices yelling that GSP and his cornermen were caught by the Nevada (State) Athletic Commission for applying Vaseline on his body during the rounds and in violation of the rules.

    WORD TO BJ'S MOM YOUR SON SUCKS AND GOT HIS ASS HANDED TO HIM BY THE BETTER FIGHTER, THE AMOUNT OF VASELINE WAS SO MINIMAL THAT WAS INENTIONALLY APPLIED THAT IT COULD NOT HAVE POSSIBLY HINDERED BJ FROM PULLING RUBBER GUARD, GSP WAS SIMPLY TO MUCH FOR BJ TO HANDLE THE STAND UP HE LOOKED WEAK AND THE GRAPPLING WAS POOR HE GASSED EARLY AND THAT WAS THE PROBLEM WILE GSP TRAINED HIS CONDITIONING BJ TOOK VACATIONS AND THUS THE STRONGER AND BETTER FIGHTER PREVAILED. END OF STORY.

    I don't think Phil Nurse helped his case with that testimony.

    tim did you hear about tim sylvia starting a fight with glen jacobs i guess he goes by the name kane in the wwe, well kane took tim down and beat his ass broke his nose and sent tim to the hospital.from what i have heard this is true and not a story.

  11. Tim

    Huh? Really hwere did you hear this, shit a WWE guy kicked the shit out of Sylvia….damn that doesnt go very well for everyone who either lost or beat him.

    Tim, thats the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Why would the athletic commission get involved if that amount of vaseline was minimal and did nothing? Seriously, I don't understand why some of you people who were not there seem to think you know more than the professionals. CYRYUS is absolutely right. IF GSP is lubing, and I say IF, is it really going to be entertaining to watch him fight, and would his wins be credible? IF he is lubing, I wouldn't want to even see him fight. But seriously, how does this make BJ a shitty fighter? He is still at the top of his division.

    actually tim is 100% right. it was a small amout of lube if any, aanyone watching the ppv can see that, and the only reason the atheltic commision is making a big deal is because bj is. if there was any lube it was only the first round cuz even the athletic commision guys said they wiped him off after the rest of the rounds. bj is a shitty fighter, and everyone saw it. gsp wont get in any trouble cuz they all know it wasnt a big deal, just going through the motions to please bj and his mommy

    $1,000 says bj only said he wanted to spend time with his daughter so he could focus 100% on his bitching. i WAS a bj supporter b4 this now i only respect his skills but not him as a person/fighter, but i bet he couldn't care less how many fans he loses over this.

    since when does losing to gsp make u a shitty fighter? penn may be a whiner and lost hard to gsp but hes still the lightweight champ and one of the best in the world.

    It's not that losing to George makes him a bad fighter it's the fact he shoots his mouth off big time before the fight then obviously didn't train hard enough to beat or even come close to beating GSP and now because of how bad he was made to look he's crying about it. Now the fact that he's got his mommy in there just makes him look worse then he already did. I'm sure she was sitting there thinking "what's wrong, why can't my little bj defend himself". Gimmie a fuckin break.

    Ok, first, The athletic commission was the first to make a big deal about it. They are the ones that entered the cage to yell at Phil Nurse. Thats not something they do all the time. And again I ask, of everyone commenting, who the fuck was actually there? No one? Who was in the cage and actually saw how much vaseline was on his hand? No one? In the video you can't actually see how much vaseline was on his hand. I have seen it. And the athletic commission wouldn't go through all this bullshit just because one fighter is bitching. They think there is something wrong too, otherwise they would basically tell him to fuck off. The fighters don't govern the commission, its the other way around. And I'm sorry DUDE, but if GSP was to slip out once because he was lubing (and I still say IF he was lubing) then the win was bullshit, because the outcome would have been effected by an illegal variable. I am a fan of both fighters, but if either was lubing, I say fuck them. It just irritates me that people are so quick to judge when the investigation isn't even over. If it comes out that GSP wasn't lubing, then BJ was an idiot. But how is everyone going to react if they sayu GSP was lubing and the win didn't count? Would BJ still be wrong and a bitch?

    He did lube its obvious Ryan but I think the point most of us are trying to make is we don't care. They r not going to reverse the decision and likely they will what fine GSP? If spending time with his daughter (bullshit) is his motivation then he should be doing that instead of ducking florain for another 2 or 3 months. The thing that bugs most people about BJ is his mouth. Hes the Terrell Owens of MMA you either love him or want to see him get killed in the ring, I vote for the later or the two. Just shut your mouth and fight. And getting his mother involved was pretty weak….

    Look i wasnt there but i was watching the paperview fight which gives you a closer glance than most seats there live, Now what i saw like the Atletic commision did is Phil wipe GSP face with Vaseline and then instead of wiping off his hands with what minimal amount he had left which you could see NOTHING really, its not like he had a big glob of shit on his hands its called excess a thin line on the hands which Yes is still vaseline but the minimal amount didnt impact the fight, BJ took this fight lightly took vacations while GSP was training hard and it showed in this fight who the better fighter was, BJ is simply trying to cover his ass in some way to cover up his weak preformance like a little bitch, The athletic Commision dropped the case cause there wasnt anything to it, Phil shouldnt of touched GSP after re applying vaseline end of story the minimal amount did not impact the fight whats so ever and BJ is just a crying bitch who has to get his mommy involved in his ordeal and have her fight his battles. BJ is pursuing this to cover his ass and try to distract the MMA fans and tarnish GSP dominating win over him.

    The Athletic Commision ruled that No action taken against GSP or his corner men.

    Aw sucks for BJ but we all new this.

  21. Ryan S

    March 19, 2009 at 7:08 am

    If the Athletic commission says no action it is good enough for me. BJ wasted his time. NOW I agree with you guys. I still don't think this makes him a shitty fighter though.

  22. Tim

    March 19, 2009 at 7:22 am

    He was a shitty fighter in this fight…end of story he got his ass kicked royaly.

    This is such bullshit. BJ u got fu**ed up and even without lube/no lube whatever – you would still lie there and bleed. Im sorry but this shit is making you look like a crybaby. no fighter in my eyes.

    Penn will get what he has coming to him by way of Florian. I cant believe this guy who clearly lost the first GSP fight and got destroyed in the second and he still does not stop. He is all mouth as proven now and they should set up a third fight just so i could watch BJ back out of it some how after all this talk because he knows what will happen to him a third time. No one wants to see you ever again go away penn you pussy. Go fight for pride oh wait they dont exist anymore either should you. BJ does your mom still hold your hand when crossing the road, tie your shoes mabey tuck you in at night. hahahahah.

    As Ryan said, the presence of the vasaline could have created 1 single slip of BJ's legs off GSP, and that's wrong. Even if it's once, because as anyone who knows this sport, all it takes is one mistake, or one slip up, and your night is over. Who is to say that in the at least one instance where BJ couldn't keep his legs on GSP that BJ couldn't have pulled a triangle? I've seen this fight enough times to see just how easily his legs were slipping down the shoulders and back of GSP. So let's not act like there was no possible way BJ could have won that fight because people would make the same case that there was no possible way Matt Serra would ever beat GSP, yet he did. Bottom line is GSP was greasing. If NSAC doesn't do anything, that's fine, but I feel the win is tainted. Whether BJ could have won if there hadn't been that extra greese, we'll never know. But to sit there and say he was having his ass handed to him, lube wouldn't make a difference is just ignorant on a person's part because if you've seen enough fights then you've seen someone getting incredibly pummeled, and then pull a submission out of no where. How could BJ ever do that if GSP is greesed? Answer. He can't. So the fight is tainted. End of story.
