“Listen, I never cheated in my life. Let me tell you something, I never said something bad to B.J. Penn. I never answered back to him with what he said. I’ve always been respectful. Even after the fight I went and told him, ‘Hey, keep your head up. You can be proud. You’re a tough guy. You stayed in the ring for a long time.’ But now that he says something like that it bothers me a lot. He already said I was taking steroids, that I was a quitter, that he was blaming me for seeing a sports psychologist and now he says that I cheat because I use Vaseline.”
–Georges St. Pierre on Sherdog’s Beatdown Radio yesterday.
As heard in the audio above, GSP is willing to fight BJ Penn again this summer, and just so there’s no controversy this time, he wants them both to wear rash guards. I’d be very curious to see if Penn would accept a rematch if offered, although I do think it would be rather pointless.
