During an interview on his own website yesterday, BJ Penn told the world how he first found out about Georges St-Pierre’s alleged greasing techniques. According to Penn, it was Kenny Florian who tipped him off via E-Mail.

Florian was quick to respond to Sherdog earlier today saying, “I’d love to see that email. I would say print that email and show it to everybody. Where’s this mystery email?”

The comment starts to make a little sense, since according to multiple reports, Penn and Florian are in discussions regarding a Lightweight showdown for the 155-lbs. title.

To make things even more interesting, Florian is planning to train in Montreal with Georges St-Pierre in preparation for his fight with Penn.
