“Greasegate” has made its first imprint on the Nevada State Athletic Commission rulebook. In a meeting held Wednesday in Las Vegas, the NSAC approved language prohibiting the use of foreign substances on a fighter’s body prior to or during a fight that “could result in an unfair advantage.” Dubbed by a commission official as the “B.J. Penn Rule,” the use of foreign substances will now be added to a list of “fouls” in the Nevada Administrative Code that address tactics illegal to fighters, such as eye gouging, small joint manipulation, or biting.

Kind of ironic it's called the BJ Penn rule and that it's listed with fouls such as eye gauging.

I was kind of wondering about the forced bathing part they wanted to put in the rules......I just figured the fighters did this naturally before fights, at least a little.....hygiene you know....ringworm (wrestlers know what I mean!)
