Georges St-Pierre Will Never Fight Again Without Drug Testing From and Independent Agency

Georges St-PierreSince former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre decided to walk away from the sport following his record setting ninth title defense at UFC 167 in November 2013, there’s been a laundry list of reasons cited for his departure.

He explained, on different occasions, that he suffered from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, that he needed a break, and that he had lost the drive needed to compete at the top level. But chief among the reasons the 33-year-old Canadian gave for his decision to leave fighting was the widespread use of performance enhancing drugs in mixed martial arts.

St-Pierre, in an interview with Bloody Elbow, says he’ll never fight again unless both he and his opponent undergo extensive drug testing by a credible independent anti-doping organization.

“I will never fight again in MMA without my opponent and myself being thoroughly tested for the most advanced PEDs by a credible independent anti-doping organization like VADA or USADA under the strictest standards of the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA) Code,” the former champion told Bloody Elbow.

The shoo-in future Hall of Famer tried to implement WADA testing for his UFC 167 bout against Johny Hendricks, but didn’t get the support needed to make it happen.

“That’s one of the reasons why I stopped fighting,” St-Pierre said during a media scrum interview in January.

“I wanted to do something to help those who are honest in the sport. Believe me or not, I never took drugs in my life. I’ll take a lie detector test, I don’t care. I’m for anti-doping tests. I think it’s a big problem in the sport,” continued St-Pierre.

“If we want the sport to be accepted worldwide, like baseball, hockey, football, soccer, I believe [drug testing] is the thing to do. I think it’s just a matter of time before it happens, it’s just that I tried to make it happen now.”

St-Pierre considers the use of PEDs the most negative trend in MMA.

“A true martial artist must respect his opponent and fight clean.”

    Georges: we want to see you fight again!!! Please come back. Put your reservations on hold and just do what you do best.

    • Hansa

      Really?? I don’t want to see GSP back…his last three fights were not good. Hendricks won against GSP, he knew he lost thats why he left. And I’m fed up with his crying about PED. UFC has a anti-doping commission that do the testing. Just do your thing and fight, don’t cry about PED, especially when none of his last 5 opponents have been caught. GSP, just be retired, nobody cares if you comes back or not. He will cry about this all the time..

      • Adam LeBlanc

        I’m sure a ton of people would love to see GSP back in, but thanks for speaking for everyone it made your whole rant questionable

        • TrentSki

          He was right though, read it again, slowly

          • Adam LeBlanc

            How slow do you recommend?

          • Hansa

            You don’t have to agree with me..but the WW is more interesting and entertaining now.

          • TrentSki

            Slow enough for you to comprehend what he was saying

          • Adam LeBlanc

            You are so good at trolling you win

          • TrentSki

            Well just trying to help your slow ass out

          • Adam LeBlanc

            I grapple and roll on the regs I totally get it, you troll and work tech support. Thanks for helping me out but the history of your comments point out all I need to know. Cheers

          • TrentSki

            You don’t know yourself very well. I feel embarrassed to read your comment, ouch, what a fool you are

          • Adam LeBlanc

            Thank you for validating me random guy who hides behind a fake persona.

          • TrentSki

            Cool story bro

      • http://goo.gl/5KL2BI Out of the Park Apps

        “Easy for you to say.”

  • peeter mans

    George…one of the best representatives of the sport…class act.

  • Jimmy Burn

    sounds to me like he’s wimping out and thats his excuse

    • Lance Pagel

      lol dude..wimping out?? come on now..

    • Scott M. Hamilton

      If you gotta use drugs to win a fight then you are not a true fighter. that is what a wimp does.

      • Hansa

        Innocent till proven guilty. GSP should keep his mouth shut, let the anti-doping commission do the testing and just fight.

        • TheCerealKiller

          You upped your own comment? LOLOLOL!

      • TrentSki

        So GSP is a wimp then?

    • Jason Priest

      Wimping out? He’s been undefeated for the past 7 years, fighting the best the welterweight division has to offer, what does he have to prove to you haha? The sport is rife with cheaters, every week someone pisses hot. I don’t see how Georges taking a stand against PED’s makes him a wimp lolz.

      • Jimmy Burn

        well if he is beating the best for the last 7 years knowing they were juicing why the big deal now all of a sudden? sounds like he knows he is past his best and im pretty sure he is not unbeaten anyway

  • Mike mckinney

    It would be quite funny if ten years from know we learn that Gsp has taken this time off so he can load up on PED’s outside of any monitoring from an athletic commission.
    I suppose it wouldn’t exactly be in conflict with the rules, or at least he wouldn’t get caught.
    Take 2 years off, hgh the hell out of yourself and come back with stronger drug testing policies to make sure the other guys can’t juice to catch up to you.
    That would be more brilliant than the greasing to making it really tough to get caught in rubber guard.

    • Jason Priest

      This is the dumbest comment I’ve ever read.

      • srichey321

        Hang around. You will see even sillier ones.

        • Jason Priest

          Haaha, tell me about it. I’m always lurking around but rarely ever comment… But with the idiocy of Mr. Mckinney’s comment, I just had to do it.

          • Mike mckinney

            Which part did you find to be the most idiotic?

          • Jason Priest

            The entire comment

    • TrentSki

      Well GSP was using them, hes just trying to deflect the blame

  • Hansa

    GSP should start to work for VADA. This guy is more concerned about PED and drugtesting then fighting. It seems like he’s implying that Hendricks, Diaz, Condit or Shields were juiced when they fought him. A real fighter fights anyone(juiced or not juiced), anywhere and at anytime. My main man Tyson said it best…I don’t care who you are or how big you are, I’m gonna destroy you.

    • Ryan Lanser

      GSP is a martial artist not a “fighter”. He doesn’t need to have the thuggish mentality of fighting anyone in any circumstance. He has nothing to prove and there is no need for him to put up with cheaters in the the sport.

      • srichey321

        A rare and sensible comment on an MMA forum. I feel like I just found a unicorn.

      • Ahmaid Ahdoodi

        And the WW division is so much more exciting now without him fighting. I support GSP’s decision not to fight 100%.

        • TheCerealKiller

          And without beating GSP, many will never call them the true champ.

          • Ahmaid Ahdoodi

            Since GSP refuses to fight, he forfeits any right to be referred to as the true champ now.

          • TheCerealKiller

            Only in your head.

          • TrentSki

            And everyone elses, except yours

            Its called reality, wake up to it

    • Daniel

      Spoken clearly as someone who is not a fighter.

    • Demetrios Tsouros

      So biting ears counts?? He is implying that more people are taking drugs than it is being let on. Someone will get hurt eventually.

  • bajafox

    He should just start his own promotion and run it however he sees fit.

    WW division hasn’t been this much fun since he left. Cheaters will be cheaters no matter what until they get caught. Sports, finances, politics, 6th grade English class. It’s a part of life, sounds like an excuse to avoid another Hendricks ass whooping to me

    • Adam LeBlanc

      It wasn’t a whooping

      • bajafox

        Sure it wasn’t, whatever helps you sleep at night

        • Adam LeBlanc

          Was he knocked out? Did he tap? Stop arguing for the sake of it lol

      • Taufiq Faryadi

        you probably think maidana didnt carry mayweather all around that ring.

        • Adam LeBlanc

          I’m all about grappling sir.

    • TrentSki

      WW division will be a lot more fun since he left, you enjoyed watching GSP dry humping people? Even when he stunned his opponents, he just jumped in there guard instead of going for the finish. GSP does sound like a child, looking for an excuse not to come back, if anyone was using drugs, it was himself

  • Amanda Mackey

    This is pissin me off that im NEVER gonna see him fight again over stupid ppl doin drugs cheating on society. F— heads.

    • TheCerealKiller

      He’ll be back. He’s positioning himself for a huge payday.

      • bajafox

        Source?

        • TheCerealKiller

          I didn’t supply a supposed “fact”, it’s my opinion. You’re too stupid to understand that.

          • bajafox

            Source?

            A comma goes inside quotation marks you moron

          • John Bunch

            Not to be argumentative, Baja, but Cereal got it right on the punctuation. The rules changed sometime over the last 20 years on that.

          • bajafox
          • John Bunch

            The head of the English Department at IUPUI said otherwise 6 years ago when I was finishing up my degree, but I won’t contest the veracity of this link. Is there a year sig on it somewhere? I didn’t check very meticulously.

          • bajafox

            You should sue him. Proper grammar cannot be changed, same as 2+2 will always equals 4. The sorry part of this whole discussion is I was born in Mexico. Your degree is worthless. Illiteracy is no excuse. Ken Prishna is a constant violator of the English language, probably why Damon Martin got a job at Fox Sports and he stills runs this crappy website

          • John Bunch

            What was the year sig on your link again?

          • John Bunch

            ’98 was the newest I could find.

          • bajafox

            I have no idea what is its you’re trying to prove. Proper grammar must be a lost art with your generation. If illiteracy among the majority of millennials is ok, then it explains why our country is in the toilet.

            Again, this is coming from a Mexican born US Citizen

          • John Bunch

            I would love to claim to be a Millennial, thank you for that. I was raised to believe the rules you are advocating for in this discussion. Back in ’08, when I finished up my Creative Writing degree, I was informed the rules had changed, in regards to dialogue within the context of a sentence. By my interpretation, “fact” was a an issue of dialogue, but perhaps I am stretching that. His whole opinion piece was dialogue, the way I see the words we type on the internet. But again…you assert I am very wrong, so perhaps I am mis-remembering a grammatical correction the head of my department announced to me.

          • grammar9

            in regard. not in regards

          • John Bunch

            haha, tyvm! :)

          • John Bunch

            I’m impressed with your sense of nationality. We need more people to advocate for who they are…and where they come from.

          • MMAreality

            Just so everyone knows baja is the smartest guy on here. If you don’t believe me just ask him. He is an engineer. He has told me several times.

            He also loves the Diaz brothers sacks! He has proven that also!!!

          • John Bunch
          • John Bunch

            I have a link pending that should clear things up for you.

          • John Bunch

            Examine the material enclosed by parentheses. Is it an entire sentence? If so, place the period inside the closing parenthesis.
            If the parenthetical material is part of another sentence, place the period outside the closing parenthesis.
            Sometimes the parenthetical material is part of a longer sentence part that will be set off by a comma, colon, or semicolon. These pieces of punctuation always come after the parenthetical material, never before it or inside the parentheses.
            From the Penguin Handbook. You’re welcome.

          • Sir_Roy

            You keep mentioning how you’re a Mexican born US Citizen. Who gives a rat’s arse? 90% of the Japanese I’ve taught English to (to lend one example) have a far, far better grasp of grammar, and can quote most of the core grammar rules (try to find a native speaker who can tell you about past perfect progressive off the cuff, for example, without Google at their fingertips to assist), than most native English speakers out there.

            (Yourself included based on many of the past blurbs I’ve seen of yours. Obviously you’re working hard to clean up your act herein.)

            But speak to them, and they can barely put two sentences together. Just tells me you’ve had to study harder, and have a better “on paper” grasp of sentence structure than some because (and not despite) it’s ostensibly your second language.

          • MikeMcK83

            Not to be an ass, but grammar and language in general change all the time. That is one reason why math is the only pure language. ;)

          • bajafox

            Wrong. It’s not changing, it is merely getting more widely accepted because people are getting dumber. Mediocrity is the new high level.

            Watch the movie Idiocracy, it is happening right before our very eyes.

          • Sir_Roy

            Hey … you want to play Grammar Nazi, why not take a look at this one; “2+2 will always equals 4″. See anything wrong there bud? Lol.

          • bajafox

            No, I don’t want to play grammar Nazi. I am only repaying the favor of being an ahole to Cereal Killer since that’s what he insists on being when he comments.

            BTW, it should be:

            “Hey… You want to play”

            And when you start a sentence with “Why” it should end with a question mark. Sucks being corrected by a Mexican national doesn’t it?

          • Sir_Roy

            Not when it’s used as a rhetorical comment, not a question, and segueing into a quote you don’t champ. And no, I do not have to capitalize my “hey” when the “…” is inserted as a comma to punctuate a pause and not a period to end a sentence.

            Mexican national that you are, I’ll give you a pass.

          • Sir_Roy

            Lol. No … you’re too one dimensional in your “Google” grammar Nazi work there bud.
            1. The punctuation was used as a pause, a comma, a break in the sentence, and not a period or an end to said sentence ergo no mistake was made.
            2. It wasn’t a question I was posing, but a suggestion followed by a quotation.
            Nice try. And it was rhetorical.
            Jeez guy. A real piece of work.

            You personify the difference between acting smart and being smart. Keep acting smart there bud.

          • TheCerealKiller

            He’s my personal hater. I guess that means I’m a celebrity or something.

          • Jason Priest

            Lolz, no it doesn’t. Who’s the moron now?

  • Terry Anderson

    He is right… plain and simple.

  • TRT-rex

    Who cares? Stop writing about GSP, unless he announces his come back!

  • Þorsteinn Stefánsson

    First of all, the sport has evolved and he knows it. I’m not saying that he would lose his next fight but he would soon anyways. That’s just the way it goes, there is always someone who is going to figure out how to beat you, it’s inevitable, somebody will have the style to beat you FACT!! But “take a break” because of the pressure when you got ur az handed to you in ur last fight and then complain about PED’s after you retired when you yourself is getting a lot bigger on your “break” is effin laughable!!

    • TheCerealKiller

      He talked about taking a step away for fighting BEFORE the Hendricks fight.

      • Kris-tyahn

        The rumors were weeks and even months before the Hendricks fight. Dana & GSP were doing nothing but talking about how the rumors aren’t true…. etc.. It’s funny how GSP haters (snif snif) like to tell themselves that he retired b/c he beat Hendricks….. sure it was a very close fight, but he still won.
        Haters/cry babies apparently don’t understand the rules of judging. GSP only won b/c of how they score MMA fights, based on a 10pt must system. Hendricks did more damage, absolutely he did. The 2 rounds Hendricks won, he won without question , but the 3 rounds GPS won were very close, though only one round could you argue that it could have been a draw, which still gives GSP the win.
        In conclusion the 2 rounds Hendricks won, he won without question, but that still only gives him 2 rounds, regardless of what happens in the other 3 rounds. Which is why GSP won the fight. Hendricks did the majority of his damage in the two rounds that he won, unfortunately for him & GSP haters, all that damage means absolutely NOTHING for the remainder of the fight, or the overall scoring of the fight. Now, if they scored the overall fight based on damage etc., then yes Hendricks would have won that fight. But guess what?!? Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda!

        • deepgrim

          back to this again, i gave round 1 to hendricks and round 2 and 4 were worthy of 10-8 rounds by the scoring system as well, as it is defined by a dominate round. considering the damage he done in them rounds and nearly stopping the fight i think 10-8 would not be unrealistic- seems like sometimes you practically have to dismember a person to get a 10-8 round. I dont think GSP has the love for fighting no more and the years of heavy training has taken its toll. Plus the top of the division may have juicers like lawler, woodley and possibly hendricks

          • Demetrios Tsouros

            NO ROUNDS IN THAT FIGHT WERE WORTHY OF 10-8 TAKE OFF YOUR HATRED BLINDERS!

          • deepgrim

            so you dont think hendricks dominated round 2 and 4 then? what do you think a 10-8 round should be? GSP was nearly finished in them rounds, what do you think a fighter should have to do?

          • Sir_Roy

            GSP took 90% of the damage to his face in round 2 via elbows to the side of the head. Being “dominated” would be spending the round on your back, fending off submission attempts, while being ground and pounded into the mat while having zero answer in the stand-up or on the ground. Sorry. But that just didn’t happen. Those rounds were not “pure” domination by any stretch.

          • deepgrim

            “pure” domination is not what it states as a 10-8 round it says dominate round. And i dont see how you figure that fending off submissions has anything to do with this, you could spend a whole round defending submissions and be in better shape by the end of the round than your opponent – via the fact that the other fighter has tired himself/ arms out trying to get the submissions. The fact is GSP was damaged to the point that he could hardly remember the fight. What answer did GSP have in them rounds?

          • Sir_Roy

            GSP was intelligently defending himself just fine in rounds 2 and 4. He was answering with shots of his own. Defending take downs. Got back up to his feet. While Hendricks clearly won those two rounds, there was no domination at all whatsoever. Those were not 10-8 rounds.

          • deepgrim

            Watched the fight again mate, have to agree now that rounds 2 and 4 were not 10-8 rounds, think i was taken in by gsp’s head. But hendricks still has round 1 for me, just not the robbery i thought it was at the time. Not sure why the ref split them up in the 2nd round when gsp was rocked

          • Sir_Roy

            I had to watch the fight twice as well to put it into perspective. I had Hendricks winning hands down the night of the fight and was shocked at the decision. I just think we’re all so unused to seeing GSP being challenged like that and losing rounds, that when it happened it was all the more impressive and things might have blown slightly out of proportion …

        • TrentSki

          Stop whinging, its painful to read

    • Morgan

      pretty simple, take the drug test and prove him wrong, otherwise stop the f–k cheating :-)

  • Oskar E Møller

    really funny how he mentioned baseball and hockey where its known all the guys are running PED’s so when they get banged up they can keep playing a few games a week….

    • Kris-tyahn

      Pretty sure he also mentioned Football & Soccer… genius! The 4 sport examples he used were about the fact that they are recognized as LEGIT sports, which all have drug testing above the UFC’s drug testing policy (if I’m not mistaken). Also, there aren’t that many hockey players who use PED’s, considering they get tested by the NHL, the IIHF when they play World Championships and/or the Olympics. The ONLY +ve test at the Olympics was by Nik Backstrom of team Sweden, who’s a “superstar” and he tested +ve b/c of medication for his allergies or asthma.
      The reason GSP mentioned those 4 sports was b/c the public/society consider those sports, legit & true sports, while many people do NOT consider MMA a legit sport, but rather a legalized “coc fighting.”

  • Coin

    Let me get this straight. GSP is a wimp because he thinks fighters should rely on their skills, experience and training rather than some drug to be winners? So, by the same token, if some fighter pulled out a gun or knife that would be ok too. I mean, based on these ridiculous arguments, he should just be willing to grab his own weapon and step into the cage.

    The rules say no drugs. If the rule doesn’t matter, none do. If none of the rules matter then its no longer the ufc. If that’s what you want to see just download youtube videos of gangs beating up on individuals or taking after people with machetes.

    If Hendricks, who was unwilling to take the drug test, cannot compete against the likes of GSP without drugs, that makes him the wimp, not GSP. He simply isn’t tough enough on his own.

    Also, because the UFC is a point system, there is no doubt that GSP won that fight. He scored more points. Even with drugs, Hendricks wasn’t strong enough to stop him.

    • Kris-tyahn

      Yeah but Hendricks face wasn’t nearly as beaten up as GSP’s, according to Hendricks that’s how you tell who won the fight (though he didn’t use that same argument when Lawler smashed his face, while Lawler had a bruise) I wonder why that is…?!?
      Most importantly, Hendricks was only using 70% of his power…. in the biggest fight of his career/life, vs. the best fighter on the planet. Though, I guess he had to say that b/c months, even days before the fight Hendricks was saying all he needed was 25 mins to land his left or even right to GSP’s chin & GSP would be ZZzzzZZ. Looks like Hendricks ASSumption was incorrect.

    • frenchy

      man your as stupid as they come. Yes GSP is asking for ppl to rely only on there skills, that is what the sport use to be. Get your head straight before jumping to conclusions like you just did. What GSP believes in,
      is the reality of Mixed Martial Arts, Not Mixed Martial drugs !!!

      • guysdumb

        You should look up the definition of sarcasm. Dumbass.

      • Demetrios Tsouros

        Re read it !!!

  • Darin

    Another mmaweekly piece with a typo in the HEADLINE……..

    • Joe Dog

      an and when an an would do

  • TrentSki

    GSP wouldn’t get a fight if these tests were in place, he’d get busted. We all know drug cheats, like to call out other drug cheats. Look at Hector Lombard calling our Nate for being a drug cheat, even though he is on everything under the sun

    • TheCerealKiller

      Moron.

      • TrentSki

        I’ve seen your comments, you sound like a moron. First read, then think, then type, not the other way around. Moron!

    • jjornada

      And you know this for a fact how?

      • John Bunch

        He doesn’t…as CerealKiller said…moron.

        • TrentSki

          The pot calling the kettle black

      • TrentSki

        Common sense really, try it

    • Demetrios Tsouros

      so he’s calling for something he would never pass on ?!

      • TrentSki

        Agreed.

  • GSP GYNO BOY

    And GSP got his gyno “bitch tits” from water? Before some moron says that you can naturally have gyno, do yourself a favor and research it, I did. If you have gyno naturally then you will also have extremely high estrogen in your body, very well could happen, but your body fat will also be extremely high, and you could never look shredded like GSP, unless of course you took drugs to combat the gyno. So either way, he’s obviously taken some drugs. Lie detector? Ok, let’s do it, FBI crime lab to perform the test. Come on GSP, volunteer and put your money where your mouth is. Or just shit up because you look really stupid now barking up a tree that you participate in

    • Demetrios Tsouros

      You are an idiot!

  • brad king

    id like to see kampmn hendricks again but this time no steroids!

  • Jbiggy

    I call bullshit, some of his boys have tested positive for PEDS in the past, GSP wa also much much smaller physically when he began MMA. If he’s completely honest in what he is saying then I would send my truest apologies. I do think that GSP is a true martial artist and a great champion one of the best of all time. I’m
    Just not sure he’s as clean as he says.

    • Sir_Roy

      With respect, GSP was not “much” smaller when starting out. Check out some of his early fights before the UFC. He was huge. And even so, perfectly natural to put on 5 to 10 pounds of mass in a decade of competition. Harder to keep bulk off as you pass the 30 year old mark.

  • Coin

    Anyone can make any claim they want about what others are doing based on conspiracy theories.

    “Oh, GSP only challenged Hendricks because he knew Hendricks would refuse and then therefore, he himself wouldn’t be caught…” <- Read sarcasm.

    Or…"GSP stopped taking steroids before fighting one of the strongest welter weights in the UFC because he 'hoped' he would be willing to take the drug test and he 'hoped' he would be on steroids and the fight would be called." <- more sarcasm.

    I choose facts, logic, and deduction over conspiracy, bias, and fantasy.

    The facts are as they are. He challenged Hendricks to a drug test and Hendricks refused. GSP was willing. All Hendricks had to do, if he was clean, was agree and if GSP wasn't clean, he would have been caught. So, conspiracy theories aside, the one who looks guilty is Hendricks.

    Why did Henricks refuse if he wasn't guilty?
    Why was GSP willing to take the test if he was guilty?

    When you have to start making up conspiracy theories, it's because you don't have any facts to work with.

    The UFC needs to clean up its act so that the fights are man to man and not which drug is better.

    Anyone who wants drugs in the UFC should start their own franchise. They can call it "Drug War Championships"*. Catchy, eh? Pick a country where its legal and start it there. Guys can even shoot up on pcp just before stepping in the ring. Hell, line the cages with various weapons and have the floor open up to a pit of shrews**. Why not? It's not about the skill, experience or training. It's about blood and mayhem and winning any way you can.

      The Hendricks fight was the one time that GSP was clean and he looked smaller than his previous fights. He also didn’t have the cardio he’s had (normally he’s hopping around after 5 rounds like he just had his morning cup of coffee).

      Hendricks said he wanted to do a more advance test, where the results can be retested for 10 years. And GSP didn’t want that. Plus everyone knows some of the more advanced stuff is harder to detect and that stuff is only available to the biggest name guys and the richest guys. I wish we got the names of the MMA guys on the Biogenesis list – they could only be the wealthiest guys in the sport which is a small pool.

      It’s ridiculous for GSP to call others out, no one has been called out more than him. He wants to give up the juice and will only fight if he knows others have too. Many of his big wins (Penn and Hughes for starters) were over clean guys where he was juiced to the max.

      • Coin

        Again, conspiracy theories. Do you have anything that backs up that he was juicing, besides your opinion? Is there a record of GSP turning down testing? If there is, I’d like to see it and then, with that proof squarely beside Hendrick’s refusal, I’ll fairly put GSP where I put Hendricks.

        As for GSP being smaller, don’t they weigh these guys before their fights? Did GSP come in at under 172lbs? If he did, I missed it.

        By the way, Hendricks does PCP right before his fights. Did you know that? I have no proof. I’m just saying that because that’s what I think. Must be a fact though, since I’m saying it. I mean, who could possibly be that tough without it. All the proof I need is my personal dislike of Hendricks and a few insinuations about his ability to knock people out.

        • Baller31

          You don’t understand cutting for a fight, do you? What they weigh in at the day before the fight has little to do with the weight they walk around at. It’s how vitor can weigh in at 185 for middle weight fights and 205 for LH fights. Not saying GSP ever used drugs, just saying your argument doesn’t make sense

          • Coin

            GSP is 5’11” and walks around at 190 to 195. He cuts about 20lbs to fight and fights at around 195.

            Hendricks is 5’9″ and walks around at around 215. He generally cuts 45 for a fight but fights at around 195.

            Hmmmm….If we’re talking size difference as suggestion of proof…

          • Sir_Roy

            Hey! How’s it going Mister “I never defame GSP in any other threads”. Like I said. You’re in just about every thread where GSP news is to be found and take every chance to take an uneducated, and unfounded shot at GSP. So you going off at me for claiming so in my original posted response to you was juvenile at best. Not to mention your response here was, in a word, dumb.

      • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

        too bad they didn’t have enhanced testing back when GSP was fighting BJ penn in their first fight. Everyone was convinced GSP was on HGH and everything else only he could afford at that time. GSP walks around at 200 lbs ripped solid muscle and has a FREAKISH 76 ” reach and still crying saying everyone else has an advantage over him. Hendricks is a natural 165 lb fighter and gets heavy between fights cause he like burgers and eat like normal people. GSP has every advantage on the world and he is still crying. I would love to see GSP fight at his walk around weight like guys like Hendo and Penn did most of their careers. No way GSP should be on any P4P lists

        • Austin, TX

          you’re ignorant my friend. he constantly fights guys taller than him. the only natural advantage he has is his talent. the person (s) that have (had) natural advantages over people are Anderson and Jones and Tim Sylvia back in the day. And for the record GSP has never said anybody had an advantage over him except when everyone was trying to get him to fight Silva, who actually did have a natural advantage over St.Pierre in fact. (4 or 5 inches taller and 35-40 pounds heavier street weight.) You’re just talking out your drainage pipe. GSP has never juices and has never failed anything whatsoever. It’s like saying just because somebody is good at something then they must be cheating. At the core of the argument is an anti French bias. It’s human. It’s as simple as that.

          • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

            The only fighter GSP ever fought with the same reach and him (76″_ was Condit. GSP had size and weight advantage over 90% of his opponents. GSP was always scared to fight anyone even close to his walk around weight. Same goes for his steroid abusing sidekick ROIDY MacDonaald

        • Coin

          Hendricks, by his own admittance, walks around at 215 and fights at 195 to 200. There are two videos where Hendricks states this himself. Look them up so that you are actually arguing facts. GSP walks around at 190 to 195, because he is always training. There is documented proof of these numbers. I don’t know where you’re getting your information from.

          So, the fact that GSP has a lanky reach and is constantly in shape means he shouldn’t complain about the rampant use of drugs in the UFC? This is your argument?

          Fighters choose their fight weight in accordance with the rules. They aren’t forced into it. BJ could fight at a lower weight if he chose. He felt his chances were better at this weight. This has no bearing on GSP’s skills or his unwillingness to compete against drugs.

          • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

            IMO and millions of others GSP will always be remembered as a steroid abuser as it was obvious. Now his body is falling apart form year and years of steroid abuse and he is paying the price. GSP spends over 6-8 months cleaning up for his last fight in MMA and he looked saggy and wasn’t near as big or ripped as before so he himself made it so obvious that he had been cheating all those years. GSP has the money and the resources to make sure he had nothing but the cutting edge PED’s his entire career.

            FACT: GSP will never have the b’alls to get in the cage and take another a’ss kicking from Hendricks

    • Shred

      Hendrix didn’t refuse anything. They were already using WADA. Gay St Pierre wanted to use VADA, ( the Canadian company that he has stock in). WADA is the best there is, and they were both tested. Hendrix beat the crap out of Gay St Pierre and got robbed of the title thanks to the corrupt judging. End of story

      • Coin

        So that was a Hendricks imposter in the pre fight interview saying he wouldn’t do the test? It’s hard to dispute video evidence. Look it up. It’s the same video where he accused GSP of being smaller.

        If you can point to any proof of GSP doing drugs or refusing a drug test, I will happily join your bandwagon. So far, all I see is opinions and insults. People say he’s smaller yet he weighs in the same. That’s an awesome trick. People keep saying he refused drug tests. Show me. Give me some hints at where to find it.

        Also, I don’t see how sexual orientation plays into this or how being gay would even be an insult. Do homosexuals frighten you? Are you worried if you don’t use the slurs you might catch “the gay”. You do know its not the 50’s anymore, right?

        • Sir_Roy

          Finally. A level headed and well spoken individual to be found. There is hope for humanity.

        • steeltown65

          i cannot tell you if GSP ever used steroids. but if you want to know if he has ever cheated. i can tell you where to find the proof. do to youtube and search GSP vs penn. THE VASELINE CHEATING SCANDAL. they actually saw stitch greasing GSP down while BJ was walking to the cage. UFC officials saw him doing it. they told Dana and because it was the witching hour. Dana couldn’t get anything done about it. BJ would get GSP down. but he would slip right off of him,. so if the guy will cheat like that. he will without a doubt take roids. after that fight is when the UFC started checking all fighters head to toe just outside the cage. so the canuck has been caught cheating.

          • Coin

            I watched that fight and the replays of that “incident”. There is nothing except your personal prejudice towards GSP that indicates he was aware or that this was anything but an error on the part of his cornerman.

            In all of his years fighting and in all of his title defenses, this is the only incident that you can point to. In any intelligent and scientific forum, this would be called an anomaly.

            Also, your argument that one thing inevitably leads to another is ridiculous. Even if he had cheated with the vaseline, “once a cheater, always a cheater” is not a fact but a loose opinion.

            The theme here seems to be, “come up with something to justify my dislike of GSP”, which has created a desperate grasp at straws.

          • steeltown65

            I don’t dislike GSP. I don’t know him. Therefore I don’t put it on a personal level. I’m basing my statement on the facts. he was very aware of what was going on. A man cannot grease gout down without you knowing it. I have an opinion of Gsp the fighter. Up until he fought Diaz. I thought he was an all business kind of guy. The he got the Diaz fight. He started talking about how
            He was gonna punish Diaz. He was gonna fight him in the middle of the cage. He was gonna give him a beat down. And then I got to watch another wrestling match. As good as he was for the image of the UFC. But he was bad for the fights. The WW division is back to where it’s the most entertaining. Two guys get in the cage and they throw down. For you to assume tjhat I don’t like him is childish. And in the real world. If you’ll grease up.to win. You’re a cheater. I don’t really mind a guy who will do whatever it takes to win. But don’t quit the sport and then trash a guy who has done the same thing you did. Cheating is cheating so if you won’t admit to what you’ve done. Don’t condemn others for what they’ve done.

      • Bernard

        Moron… You confuse everything.

      • Austin, TX

        St. Pierre is neither gay nor a cheater. He is the one who doesn’t cheat funny enough. VADA isn’t a “canadian company he has stock in.” it’s a tax exempt corporation (501c3) not for profit protected by IRC (Internal Revenue Code.) Internal Revenue Code is the USA. It’s the company you can’t cheat with as regards what you put in your body because you volunteer everything.

        Try not to smear people.
        Also if you watch that fight closely, GSP won. 3 rounds to 2.

    • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

      GSP nuthuggers are the worst

      GSP was in bed with VADA and they were up to no good. Any organization that iligns themself with Victor Conte should not be trusted

      And so we see it. In the absense of intelligent argument and fact, you resort to grade school insults, a sure sign that your argument is defeated.

      If I was 10 years old, these obviously well thought out attacks might have been an effective tactic. It was close. I almost replied with “I know you are, but what am I?” That’s a good one, eh? You can go ahead and hold onto it for future arguments.

      Are you high? What you say has no relationship to reality. That person that you’re speaking of there in that quote is more likely Anderson Silva.

    I agree with him. He is correct in what he says. It’s true. There was n reason and is no reason for there not to be testing like that etc.

  • Nate “THE CHEAT” Marquardt

    GSP cleans up for one fight now he pretends to be the new spokesman for PED’s. Now GSP knows how all his opponents felt his entire career. It was so obvious GSP was off the sauce his last fight. He was nowhere near as big as before and he was saggy looking at the weigh ins.

    Sad part is he got his a’ss kicked and he knows it and this is his way of blaming it on PED’s. Hendricks manhandled him and put a world class ass whooping on him
