It would be hilarious if Trigg was the next one. GSP stuck to that guy like glue for 4 minutes before tapping him.
I'm also getting a little concerned, but at the same time I'm confused. Nobody has mentioned this before, but GSP has only been cornered by the Jackson Camp since UFC 74. At first this was thought to be caused by Phil Nurse's oversight in his corner. Since Penn has started talking about their first fight (UFC 58), Hughes is now talking about the second (UFC 65) and third fights, and Mayhem is talking about their fight (UFC 52), that means if GSP has been greasing, he's done it with two different corners, but prior to GSP switching camps, he performed no such between round massage rituals, or anything of the sort. You can look at this a bunch of ways. Either GSP himself has iniated his corner greasing him (possible, but unlikely given his character and general honesty), GSP gets sweaty during fights (imagine that?), or these opponents are looking for a way out... but not really, since none of them claim it's changed the outcome of the fight (then why bring it up at all?)
What I find especially interesting, is that Hughes didn't mention his first fight (UFC 50) with GSP as one of the times he felt greasy, even though Mayhem talked about him being greasy at 52. Did GSP just suddenly have an epiphany after he lost to Hughes that he needed to grease, or does Hughes not care because he won that fight? I would likely think the latter.
Just a whole bunch of weird stuff going on. Made even weirder by the fact that nobody has talked about this publicly until now.
