UFC 94: St.-Pierre vs. Penn 2 – Las Vegas, Nev. - MGM Grand Garden Arena – Jan. 31, 2009
Georges St. Pierre bested BJ Penn in a battle of champions at UFC 94, but a greasing controversy clouded his victory.
GSP used an overwhelming ground-and-pound attack to defend his welterweight title against Penn, who tried to add the belt to his lightweight championship.
While Penn failed to continue after four rounds, he later sought an investigation into his claim that GSP was covered in too much Vaseline. While the decision stood, a new rule was enacted limiting the use of grease to a fighter’s face.
GSP also won his first meeting against Penn by split decision at UFC 58.
