Poke-gate: Florian camp accuses BJ Penn of fighting dirty

Props: Fighthype

Quoteworthy:

"There are a lot of things that happened during the [UFC 101] fight that you may or you may not have seen. Kenny got poked in the eye, which BJ is notorious for. He did it against Matt Hughes twice in one fight and once in their first fight. He did it against Georges St. Pierre in both fights. He was hitting behind the head all of the time. Kenny won't say this, but I certainly will."

Keith Florian, brother of former UFC lightweight number one contender Kenny Florian, discusses some of the alleged foul play from current 155-pound champ BJ Penn during his UFC 101 title defense against "KenFlo." Kenny was submitted via rear naked choke in the fourth round but never really got into a groove in his second title fight since joining the UFC ranks in 2005. Was it the layoff that disrupted his riddum? Or did BJ have a hand (or finger) in making sure he "lost sight" of his title aspirations?
