UFC implements new rules for cutmen and corners

Kru Phill Nurse is the Vaseline Master

We here at PRO MMA (http://promma.info) told you about the controversy surrounding UFC 94’s main event and Georges St. Pierre’s corner-man, Kru Phil Nurse, putting Vaseline on his back.

If you have been away from the Internet this past week then you have missed the fallout from that incident with the message boards, airwaves, and chat rooms filled with talk of grease, pre-fight oil baths, and rematches. The story continues to unfold as now the UFC has gotten involved and decided to implement some changes to the rules regarding a fighter’s corner while a bout is in progress.

According to new reports, the UFC has banned all corner-men from handling Vaseline used in between rounds to treat and prevent cuts on the fighters. Instead, the UFC will provide one cut man for each corner during the fight and the handling of the Vaseline will be his job. A maximum of two people are allowed to be inside the Octagon in a fighter’s corner between rounds (including the cut man).
