Alright, fellas, go get your jars of vaseline out of the medicine cabinet or wherever you keep it and let's do the vaseline test. And don't cheat by barely applying it either.

I just did it and washed my hands and it's still on my fingers and the spot on my arm where I applied it then "wiped" it with a dry towel. Stuff's still there! Vaseline is not going to come off with just wiping it; you need very warm/hot water and lots of soap. It may take a couple of washings or so too.

Plus, I thought some of you as well as some articles I've read since the GSP greasing said some of these fighters apply "lotion" the day/night before their fights and when they start sweating is when the lotion comes to the surface. If that's happening from the night before, there's no way vaseline that's just been applied is going to be gone merely from wiping it off with a dry or even wet towel. Let's use some common sense please, or at least put it to the test. I know you guys have vaseline.

enough with the whining, if people thought he was greasing, they should have said something at the time of the fight and lodged a complaint then ... BJ is full of crap, his camp is full of crap ... let's see .. BJ says Florian's camp and serra's camp tipped him off to gsp being greasy .. then he also said GSP was greasy the first time they fought .... which one is it? BJ is a whiner, he has excuses for all his losses .. this is just another sad attempt at him to provide a reason for why he lost ... take it like a man ..

They noticed after the first, so says Kizer, the head of the commission.

Why make a formal complaint?
Look at how many people just write it off and call BJ a whiner and a baby for complaining.

double standards, either take things seriously and be all for complaints,
or be the guy who calls everybody a baby and a whiner.

Penn is trying to make an excuse out of an extremely one-sided beating he took ... that is all ... and penn fans will take this to their graves ... if they fight again, BJ and his fans will come out with something else ...

Again, rub vasoline all your your shoulders,
then see if it comes off with a quick towell wipe, it doesn't.

Anybody who has had vasoline on their hands knows even if you try to wipe it off its a pain in the ass to get off your skin.

UFC president Dana White recently spoke to the Canadian Press, and here’s a few of the interesting quotes he gave during the interview:

“Do I think that he got greased? Yeah, I do.
Absolutely, 100 per cent, I think that that guy was rubbing grease on him.
Do I think Georges was trying to cheat? Absolutely not at all.
But that cornerman was rubbing grease on him. You cannot do that….You put another fighter at a huge disadvantage, which is very dangerous….
I think he was. I do. I think he absolutely, positively knew that he was rubbing grease on him.
I do. Nobody can tell me different. I watched the tape a million times.”

i don't know where it is but i'm sure i read that he was warned twice to not do it.
