B.J. Penn will go down in UFC history as one of the very best to ever don the fingerless gloves. That's a given.

However, one thing that doesn't get talked about as much is quite how bad of a loser the former UFC Lightweight and Welterweight Champion could be on his day.

Losing to Georges St. Pierre is nothing to be ashamed of. Even losing to him twice is understandable, the guy was arguably the greatest fighter of his generation. Despite that being the case, Penn still felt as though he'd been somewhat screwed out of his second clash with GSP at UFC 94 for the Welterweight title.

Citing GSP's slight use of Vaseline on his back and chest as an unfair advantage, Penn then went for broke and called out GSP as a steroid user in 'his opinion' - despite admitting to not having any proof to suggest as much.

So, the Vaseline thing wasn't too far fetched, as the world did see GSP's trainer move his greased hands from the fighter's face to his chest/back. However, to suggest that GSP - a fighter who has never failed a drug test - was a roid user, was about as desperate as you can get.

You lost Penn, most people do against 'Rush'.
