NSAC Takes No Action at Greasegate Hearing

Georges St-Pierre Punches BJ Penn at UFC 94

Georges St-Pierre Punches BJ Penn at UFC 94

The Nevada State Athletic Commission took no formal action today in its investigation into greasing allegations made by BJ Penn against UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who defeated Penn via fourth-round TKO on January 31st in Las Vegas.

Prior to hearing testimony from St-Pierre’s cornerman Phil Nurse, who applied Vaseline to St-Pierre’s shoulders and back while performing a breathing technique between rounds, and trainer Grag Jackson as well as Penn, the NSAC confirmed that no action would be taken at the meeting. Instead, the commission obtained as much information as possible regarding the incident so rules could potentially be adapted in the future.

NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer confirmed at the meeting that a formal complaint would not be made against St-Pierre, who is slated to take on Thiago Alves at UFC 100 on July 11th in Las Vegas.
