I disagree.
If it was on his back / shoulders.
There was clearly video of Penn not being able to keep his guard high on GSP's back where the vasoline was applied. This making his flexibility (a huge weapon of his) ineffective.

GSP being stonger and having a good posture at the time.. and sweat.. would have nothing to do with it? And I see where the shoulders could be an issue, but the video I saw had baby jay in the upper ribs area.
It is because you chose to get on the mat that makes you the winner. Think about how many people are not on that mat right now. - Luis Sucuri Togno
