George St. Pierre Under Fire for K-Y Jelly Sponsorship

UFC welterweight champ George St. Pierre has come under fire recently over his choice of sponsors, namely, Johnson & Johnson's K-Y Jelly, whose company logo was prominently displayed on the Canadian's shorts and on a banner unfurled between rounds during his UFC 94 bout against BJ Penn. Critics allege that the lubricant has no place in the sport, and that St. Pierre's victory is somehow tainted. St. Pierre's Muay Thai trainer disagrees. "K-Y Jelly replaces personal moisture in a way that feels natural and helps enhance intimacy," said Kru Phil Nurse in a post-fight interview. "This non-greasy formula rinses off easily for a pleasant experience." Replied a spokesman from Penn's camp: "Dude, that's just creepy."
