At Tuesday's Nevada State Athletic Commission review of the bout, yet another unique story was brought to "Greasegate."

Lorraine Shin, the mother of UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn, addressed the commission and charged them with failing to properly protect her son in the course of the Jan. 31 contest.

The contents of Shin's address to the NSAC are included below:

"My name is Lorraine Shin, and I am the mother of Jay Dee Penn, also known as B.J. Penn. I have been involved in the MMA arena as a producer for years.

"I have and continue to support my four sons who have earned their black belt status in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. I have also had the opportunity of attending many Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournaments as well as MMA fight events in Hawaii, Guam, Japan, England and the U.S. Mainland. I am no stranger to the MMA fight world.

"During the past 12 years my sons operate and are instructors in the Penn Fitness and Training Center in Hawaii, which I have been very instrumental in its daily operations. My son, Jay Dee Penn, has also produced MMA events under the name of Rumble on the Rock in Hawaii and Guam, and later merged with EliteXC. As the financial adviser for the family, it was imperative for me to understand the rules and regulations governing MMA events.

"On Jan. 31, 2009, I was present at the UFC 94 event held at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. The fighters in the main event were B.J. Penn vs. Georges St. Pierre for the welterweight title.

"I was sitting in the front row, near the entrance to the octagon cage, and clearly understood the seriousness of this fight that had been successfully marketed on prime time television.

Just a excerpt from some BJ Penn dialogue from today that blew my mind.......seriously the balls........

“I really think we could have made a correct judgment of how to move forward from there,” said Penn.

In closing, Penn turned to St. Pierre again and questioned his integrity.

“I don’t know how anyone would want to be the world champion with a belt around their waist that cheated to get there,” said Penn. “It just doesn’t make sense to me.”


Greg Savage contributed reporting from Las Vegas.


Oh yeah and this ramble.......Just push play

and to think, I was a huge Penn fan.... after this therad, maybe I need to just keep that to myself. I just cant believe that it has come to this. I really want to see a Penn vs. GSP III, just to see GSP whoop Penns ass in the first round with no excuse to be given (well atleast none that we have thought could have been made before). Congrats Penn, you are now officially worse then Hughes.

Yeah, that's still the case, especially since, unfortunately, we didn't get the closure some of us (myself included) were hoping for yesterday. Sorry folks, we have to suffer with Vaseline-Gate a bit longer...and to think I claim to be the one who first coined that term.

Closed.
