That's pretty funny! Yeah I don't think it made a big difference in the fight, but it's lame. I'm not an expert, and not a huge Ju-Jitsu fan or anything, but I think it's kind of unfair that fighters wear clothing that real people will almost never wear in the real world... well wait, the 1st world anyway. Roussimar Palhares would have destroyed Nate Marqhardt if they had fought while fully clothed, which would have been a better measure of their practical street fighting ability. I feel for the Ju Jitsu guys. Even without grease, their skill is not as useful in the cage as it is in an actual man on man street fight. I have a lot of respect for the effectiveness of that martial art.

In a really hot third world country, people actually do dress like this, so I guess the UFC is most closely simulating a fight in the third world! :P

“I saw he had a little Vaseline on his chest and I wiped it from his chest and arms, as I saw him touching them as well,” Lavigne told Sherdog.com on Tuesday.

Lavigne was then given a “thumbs up” of approval from the corner of Leites before allowing the bout to proceed.
Another source from Hunt’s article also quotes Vitor “Shaolin” Ribiero, who was one of the cornermen for Thales Leites.

“I remember Yves Lavigne toweled and cleaned the body,” Ribeiro said. “I don’t think [the cutman] put a lot of grease on his face and [Silva] put it on his body. I think everything was pretty fair.”

STFU and stop whining.

"when thales got him to the ground the whole world would have seen how weak and dumb anderson silva is "
Yeah because obviously even if you have a black belt under the Nogueira brothers and are on a winning streak Thales could only dream of, if you get tapped by Thales you're just dumb and suck at MMA.
" just like the front kick to the knee of thales those are moves wich could end a fighters career that's just something you dont do"
They're not against the rules. Brandon Vera used them on Keith Jardine. The last I checked the fighters aren't there to babysit each other. A hard KO could "end a fighter's career" as could an armbar

The small amount that the ref puts on your face is not enough to really make a difference.

So wut he wiped his stomach a bit not like its his back so he can't get triangled via gsp. N after a few mins he'll sweat so it wouldn't make a difference vaseline on the body or not.

Show's what you know about MMA man. You use all tools you learn and you also learn to defend them. That's the whole point. Anyway, he did grease himself up, whether he realized it or not is irrelevant. With that said, don't take the grease out of the sport. That's just a stupid and ignorant comment. It prevents quick friction when the gloves contact the skin and stops the skin from tearing apart. It lessens the damage to the face and should be left in. Learn a little about MMA and fighting before you comment next time guys.
