Did Anderson cheat

I know GSP got a lot of heat for this but what do you guys think is this cheating?

This is hardly enough Vaseline to make any kind of an impact when Vitor would have grappled him.

GSP's trainers used a lot more Vaseline, right out of the package.

I agree with you but there are also people who think this could just well be enough for a cheater to use..

Well do the rules matter or is it just what people "feel" is cheating?

If you look at the rules they are vague and its the officials at the fight who are in control of what qualify's as "excessive"

I thought his eyes looked kinda weird during the introduction. Maybe the vaseline in his face made him uncomfortable.

The officials put enough to help with cuts but there really is no reason for a fighter to move it around the body they only have on intention when they do that.. like bobby said thats far from enough to cheat but Anderson did it for a reason..

There's a couple of gifs around of Silva speading the vaseline from his face to all over his body, I think he does it before most matches.


Is it cheating? It didn't stop Chael at all. IMO it's a lot like getting a good sweat buildup before the fight. But it's up to the officials.



Sidenote, that stupid female referee is the worst, WORST at putting on vaseline and the fighters' visible disdain for her is awesome.

Yeah.

It's kind of like not reporting that $25 you got from selling grammy your toaster on your taxes.

Against the rules, but its so small no one gives a damn.

Without trying to sound sexist I disagree with that skelator like women ref being in the octogan. How is she going to stop or separate 2 guys?
