All GSP had to do is push him around and hold BJ down with his UNGREASED arms and hands.
Ok how about you grease yourself up and than try taking down someone with tdd. It's a lot harder to get someone down when you're slippery. You should have a hard time grabbing and controlling your opponent. Yeah it makes some submissions harder but all chokes including triangles can be sinched in when slippery. The grease did not go all the up to the back of GSP head or down the back of his legs where BJ could have grabbed him to control his posture when he's throwing up his legs with out controlling a head or arm. Instead he threw up half assed attempts at triangles that only required posturing up which he could have down without grease.
