Default "Jackson's camp has to stop greasing" -Cesar Gracie

and yet another professional from the MMA community speaks out about GSP greasing. this is getting crazy


Quote:
A few years back Diego Sanchez had enough grease on him to lube up a semi. His corner was greasing him up so Nick wouldn't submit him. At the time the commission and public wasn't as hip as to how this could affect the outcome of a fight and they got away with it. Now those guys are acting like they didn't know what they were doing. Glad the truth is coming to light.

Does anyone know when exactly "greasing" became illegal in MMA? When I first heard Matt mention Georges' greasiness back in 2006, I didn't know that the practice was against the rules, because I had never heard of it before. It's starting to sound like a recent development.

Looking over the unified MMA rules.. not a whole lot that is specific...


The Unified Rules are the de facto rules for mixed martial arts in the United States, and have been adopted by other promotions and jurisdictions worldwide.
Legal Techniques

The Unified Rules used to allow all elbow strikes except those hitting downwards with the point of the elbow.

Recent amendments and clarifications to the unified rules now allow all elbow strikes (except those to illegal striking areas of the body, for example, the groin)

Fouls

The following are fouls, as set out by the Nevada State Athletic Commission:

* Putting a finger into any orifice or into any cut or laceration on an opponent. (see Gouging)
* Clawing, pinching or twisting the flesh.
* Grabbing the clavicle.
* Kicking the head of a grounded opponent.
* Kneeing the head of a grounded opponent.
* Stomping a grounded opponent.
* Spiking an opponent to the canvas on his head or neck. (see piledriver)
* Holding the shorts or gloves of an opponent.
* Spitting at an opponent.
* Engaging in an unsportsmanlike conduct that causes an injury to an opponent.
* Using abusive language in the ring or fenced area.
* Attacking an opponent on or during the break.
* Attacking an opponent who is under the care of the referee.
* Attacking an opponent after the bell has sounded the end of the period of unarmed combat.
* Flagrantly disregarding the instructions of the referee.
* Timidity, including, without limitation, avoiding contact with an opponent, intentionally or consistently dropping the mouthpiece or faking an injury.
* Interference by the corner.
* Throwing in the towel during competition. (forfeit)

General Conduct

* Fighters are tested for steroids and other illegal substances.

So, forget about the Vaseline, GSP still cheated in his last fight with Matt.

Where did that come it at? I don't remember. Will dig it up when I get home.

Matt is a great fighter/person.. and I hated seeing that specific fight, but I didn't see a knee.

Matt just got caught in that sub last time.. GSP was really on that night also.

That amendment to elbows in a downward motion.. was after the Anderson/Lutter fight.. which I still say was a "cheat".. illeagle move"

Should not surprise anyone. The Gracie's always get upset when one of their own get beat!!!! The Gracie's are just upset because mixed martial arts has evolved beyond them!

Wow!!! Truth is going to come out. With or without Dana White or GSP help. Vaseline to the body is morally wrong and is illegal in the true nature of MMA period!!
