Thank you! Not pointing any fingers but some people act like the "greasing" was the reason GSP got the victory when in fact he was whooping that ass for 4 straight rounds and just had his way with Penn.
Am not say that GSP could not have won the fight without the grease, but what ever way you look at it him and his team or ether him or his team broke the rules and went completely unpunished.
And I do believe it had an effect in the fight, which may have had a possible effect on the result. fact is you can't be 100% certain if it effected the result or not.
Even with the way the fight went down, sure GSP wa wining the TD's and BJ was having to work from his back, not really a good place to be with a guy like GSP I know, but fact is it was effecting BJ's ability to hold guard, so maybe two things.
First thing maybe BJ was taking more damage than he should have been taking making it harder for him work and recover from each TD therefore turning the fight more into GSP's favor as the fight progressed making a comeback less likely.
Secondly there is the obvious ability that since his ability to hold full guard was effected this obviously could have effected BJ's ability to at least attempt certain submissions.
So to say it effected the fight is true, so to assume it effected the result ins speculation on ether account, its not right to say BJ would have won that fight if not fir the greasing but at the same time its not right to say that GSP would have won anyway because we simply will never know.
As for the argument that saved GSP from the commission about his team applying the Vaseline between rounds without his knowledge or permission, does not really matter, fact is should not really matter he it was him or his team at ringside that broke the rules, they should all have been judged as one unit and the commission should have set an example if not overturning the result to a disqualification loss to GSP which is exactly what I think should have happened, they should have at least ruled it a No Contest, all that despite if or not you think GSP would have still won if not for the grease.
