Georges St-Pierre may have never failed a performance-enhancing drug test, however he is highly criticized by past opponents. Most recently, Johny Hendricks has inadvertently brought the talks of St-Pierre on PEDs after he challenged the champ to WADA drug testing. St-Pierre’s camp responded with offers to do the VADA program instead. Hendricks went on to say that he did not like the suggestion, as St-Pierre was featured on their website and may be sponsored by the company.
Between all the hoopla , St-Pierre has now spoke out against his employers at the UFC for not only not assisting the program, but also having Dana White oppose St-Pierre’s suggestion in recent media scrums.
“We miss the boat now,” said St-Pierre. “The only thing is that I do not know if they are willing to support me. I thought they were ready to support me, but I was disappointed, very disappointed with this turn of events.
“There are things I can not say. I do not want to get back to the UFC because it is my employer. However, I do not take journalists for idiots. They are able to read between the lines. They are able to see what happens.”
“It bothers me to fight against guys who use performance-enhancing drugs, because it is not fair. It’s a nasty difference in training, argues St-Pierre. “There are those who say: ‘Doping, it does not bother me.’ Me, it bothers me… Without accusing anyone, if there are some who do not want to do the tests, I’ll do the fighting. It will not be the first time. But it’s just that I’m getting a little tired of it.” – LAPress.CA (French)
Georges is usually the silent type. The fact that he would even hint at ‘disappointment’ leads you to believe that there is likely more going on behind the scenes. As the situation stands, there is missing pieces to the puzzle. Someone is not laying all the facts on the table. We can only speculate as to who has something to hide.
