I want to come clean about greasegate. I'm making this a bit of a crusade and here's why: I love MMA. Its the only sport I care about at all and in these dark economic times it actually gives my life a little bit of meaning and pleasure.

I've been meaning to write a series of essays called "MMA IS Sacred" for a little while now and I guess this incident will finally get me off my ass.

This is quite a long read, but well worth taking a look at imo.

Excellent read. I think the article nails it. Probably the most damning point of the whole article is this: "The only reason this came to light is because it was so grossly blatant that top UFC stars were outside the Octagon screaming at the commission."

If that is true, wow, I don't know what

Those guys should be ashame of them, everything was blew out of proportion and all started with Liddell, the guy known for his eye poking.

I am defending GSP since 3 or 4 days now, every time a guy reply with a ridiculous comment that make thing worst, i can only imagine what GSP is thinking now, he destroyed BJ fair and square but because a guy touched him with maybe a minuscule particle of vaseline still on his hand , the guy is a cheater.

Shame on all of those who put wood in this fire.

Also ,don't believe 1 moment that GSP gonna be destroyed by this ****, he will be back with a vengeance and all of those who bashed on him gonna have to deal with it for the rest of their life.

Well I guess the plot thickens.
With everything happening,I really wonder what will become of all this.
I'm reserving my opinion for now though.Too early to say anything for sure.

I am airing on the side of caution. I really dont think that somthing like this would happen in a Greg Jackson corner on purpose

I think if GSP is a "cheater" then everyone he beat should get a rematch lol
just to prove to all of you that he earned all of those wins

But which one of them is stupid enough to take a rematch and get sent to the hospital.
