Everybody is calling for a rematch between St Pierre and Penn...

Everybody is calling for a rematch between St Pierre and Penn...

There needs to be a rematch! GSP cheated! BJ Penn is GOD! Nobody can beat BJ Penn if he is in shape! BJ PENN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Arrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!11

People keep saying that they can't wait for GSP/Penn III. "I can't wait for the rematch!" they say.

Wasn't everybody already "can't waiting" for GSP/BJ II? What happened? The truth of the matter is, barring a Matt Serra shocking punch, GSP/BJ III will be a lot like Tito/Ken III, a COMPLETE waste of time.

And while I'm all for GSP messing up BJ while wearing a rash-guard, there are too many other title fights for both guys, GSP at 170 and BJ at 155, for me to want to see both GSP and BJ waste another 4-5 months training for a fight that makes little to no sense.

Both guys should move forward. Let the commission look at the whole "greasing" incident and punish the corner if need be. Hell, punish St. Pierre, fine him $10,000, send a message, fix the rules, only allow licensed officials who work for neither fighter to apply Vaseline between rounds, and make sure this never happens again.

As fans, we need to let this go. We need to let BJ fight at 155 and try and prove he is the best 155lb fighter in the world. And let GSP continue to try and dominate at 170.

Nobody is going to deny that a trace amount of Vaseline made it to GSP's back, but the majority of us don't think GSP, or his corner, cheated. A mistake was made, and steps need to be taken to make sure this kind of mistake doesn't happen again. Penn fans, let it go. BJ got smoked, he's not a 170lb fighter. He's a 155er. Encourage him to go to 155 and dominate, stop making excuses for him, he's a big boy, he's going to be all right.

All that being said, if a rematch does happen, I hope they do allow GSP to wear a rashguard, although, I'm sure that Penn fans would claim that BJ is allergic to the material and therefore couldn't breath properly, causing him to lose strength in his legs, which is why his legs were slipping in the fight, and therefore, because GSP knows a lot of Doctors, and got ahold of BJ Penn's medical records in order to find out if Penn had any allergies to any materials that could be used in the creation of a rashguard, GSP is a dirty cheater.
