    You do know Gus eyepoked jones in their second fight right? And I am not defending jones but he hasn't done a single eyepoke since the rule changes regarding eyepokes.

    So a guy that was notorious for it stopped doing it completely as soon as the rules changed.

    I can't remember Conor ever having a foul in his run at 145 or against Alvarez

    I don’t necessarily agree with your methodology, but I agree 100% with the sentiment. Any behavior that you want to stop, will stop if you make the penalty severe enough.

    Do you have a source quoting BJ talking about this before the fight? This is the story that BJ told, but from what I recall we only heard about it after the fight and the controversy, and only then did other people jump on the bandwagon.

    I don't think you're clear on what the word "definitely" means.

    Fedor grabbed the ropes against Lindland to reverse a TD
    Nog constantly grabbed shorts to set up sweeps

    If it didnt make a difference why do it to begin with. He cheated and got away with it fair play to him

    You clearly didn't read this entire thread and you don't seem worth talking to.

    LOL another example of a GSP "fan" who knows nothing about this sport other than what wiki tells you. Do you remember the sequence that lead to gsp winning the 2nd fight with Hughes?

    Here's Penns formal letter to the commission (the basis of which they accpeted and made no effort to dispute)
    https://bleacherreport.com/articles/119715-penns-formal-request

    Here's Penn telling the media
    https://lasvegassun.com/news/2009/jul/29/no-more-drama/

    Here's hughes saying GSP felt greasy and claiming Serra said the same.
    https://www.mmaweekly.com/matt-hughes-says-gsp-felt-greasy-when-they-fought

    Here's Hughes and Sherk (totally not accusing anyone or talking about GSP)


    I can't find the Trigg or Miller sources right now because it's a decade of news ago, but both of them made similar kinds of comments.

    All in all, like 5 hall of famers have accused him either directly or indirectly, and Penn stated on the record to the comission that the comission was told in advance and they didn't dispute that point, they proceeded with his complaint. That's a lot of smoke for there to be no fire.

    So no public statement before the fight, right? Just statements after the fight from BJ and a bunch of other people that GSP beat, correct?

    I don't care if it was his mom, if any inappropriate action was taken it was by that person. Nobody has told me yet why, if this was some grand plan, did they do it on camera in front of everybody? It would have been easy to pre-grease a towel, for example, or 1000 other things.
