Cesar Gracie clarifies comments, GSP did not grease

source: The Underground

This morning, FightOpinon.com UFC-129-thoughts/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+fightopinion+%28FightOpinion.com+-+Your+Global+Connection+to+the+Fight+Industry.%29">published a transcription of a radio interview given by Cesar Gracie, in which he made comments that could have been misconstrued as accusing Georges St. Pierre of greasing:

Jake had a leg a couple of times, GSP got out very well, it looked like a couple of times his leg just kind of slipped right out of there, you know, so it must have been really slippery or something, I don’t know. So, yeah, he defended all the takedowns and made it a stand-up fight, so…”

Cesar Gracie was made aware of this misinterpretation and immediately clarified his comments on the Underground Forum:

Literally just got a call about a slippery comment I made and wanted to set the record straight. GSP slipping out of stuff does not mean he greased. Guys fighting in swim trunks can make things slippery. Spitting water on yourself and sweating can make things slippery. It is not illegal.

GSP won and is the Champ.

The disrespect shown to Cesar in this thread is indicative of why so many fighters do not post on the UG any more.

It must've been some magic water that allowed GSP to get takedowns but stopped Shields' takedown attempts.

oh, and GSP is NOT wet when the fight starts because the commissions installed the GSP RULE to check fighters prior to fights and wipe them down

wow..are you really this fucking stupid you monkey?ever heard of slippery when wet? when things get wet, they tend to get more slippery. even your delusional lust for GSP cannot deny physics.

This thread feels slippery. I'm not saying it is slippery, but it feels like it.
