Will B.J. Penn quit the UFC?

Prior to the UFC 94 Welterweight Title fight, B.J. Penn had quite a few harsh words to say about his opponent, Georges St. Pierre. Among other things, B.J. called him “a quitter” and “a frontrunner.”

Following their main event fight on January 31st that was stopped after round four by B.J.’s corner, UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges St. Pierre spoke to MMA Live about the irony of the situation.  St. Pierre stated, “It’s called reflexology. He was saying things about me but he was really talking about himself. Those things he said about me are really characteristics that he sees inside himself.”

Host Kenny Florian said, “He called you a quitter, but he was the one who quit tonight.” Frank Mir who was also on the MMA Live panel said, “He was projecting onto you those things.”

UFC 94 main event is slippery situation

According to the Fight Network, B.J. Penn’s camp has filed a formal complaint with the Nevada State Athletic Commission following his TKO loss to UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges St. Pierre at UFC 94 on Jan. 31st in Las Vegas.

The complaint revolves around allegations that St. Pierre’s corner-man applied Vaseline to GSP’s back between rounds.

A member of the NSAC noticed one of St. Pierre’s men applying the petroleum jelly and all hell broke loose. UFC President Dana White said at the post-fight press conference, “The guys from the athletic commission went up there and started screaming at them. Knocked the Vaseline and kicked the Vaseline out of the Octagon. Some Vaseline on a guy’s back didn’t change the outcome of that fight, but you don’t do it.”
