No penalties for St-Pierre

March 17th, 2009

Georges St-Pierre and his camp avoided any sanctions handed down by the Nevada State Athletic Commission at today’s hearing in Las Vegas.

It’s basically up to the Commission if any action will be taken. St-Pierre’s trainer, Greg Jackson and cornerman Phil Nurse, who applied the illegal Vaseline to St-Pierre’s neck and back during the fight, were questioned as was B.J. Penn. St-Pierre was not in attendance at the hearings.

It seems very unlikely that any sanctions will be handed down against St-Pierre’s camp. The only changes that could come from these proceedings is that appointed persons from the Commission will now be in charge of wiping down fighters between rounds, and corners may not be allowed to touch their fighters during fights. But none of that is official yet.
