it's a lose lose for St. Pierre.
but wtf, I guess he has to accept.
Now Penn has an idea of where the bar is, he see's how strong GSP is now, and has had a chance to try, and fail, and learn from his mistakes. It's actually pretty unfair for GSP to have to even consider it. He was prepared, Penn wasn't.
So now Penn will work out like crazy, get in much better shape, andhave a better showing, and if the fight is closer, everyone will paint GSP as a cheater and blame the proper result on cheating, when he was clearly more prepared and Penn was sadly out of shape. Penn is in a very favourable position, which is what he likes, he likes it easy. GSP must now go to another level altogether so he can thoroughly beat this guy down, again.
Here's omething that irks me. Thats the contention that a tiny dab of vasoline on a guys back, TINY, could chanmge the fight, but that there is no way any of the vasoline these guys have smushed all over thier eyes could ever find it's way on to the fighters backs during the fight. Thnk about how ridiculous that is. It's a fucking joke actually. One jab to the eye you have vasoline on your glove, first clinch, th eEXACT same small dab is now on your opponents back.
In all the fights where people complain about vasoline, its the loser that whines, oddly, when they win they don't say a word.
