Vaseline Update: UFC Introduces New Rule


Following a week of controversy, the UFC has introduced new rules to prevent it happening in future bouts.  The UFC will now have a cut man available for each corner.  Only two cornermen will still be allowed per fighter, so if a fighter requires attention (either to work on a cut or apply Vaseline) then the one cornerman must exit the cage.

The above rule is a result of the Georges St-Pierre Vaseline controversy where Phil Nurse applied Vaseline to GSP’s face and then to his back.  The new rule will be immediately put into place for Ultimate Fight Night 17.
