Georges St-Pierre Says UFC's Drug Testing Attitude Contributed to His MMA Departure
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.14.2014



Georges St-Pierre recently spoke with RDS about his walking away from MMA and more. Check out the highlights:

On the UFC's attitude toward drug testing: "It's one of the reasons why I stopped. Not really to [teach] them a lesson, because it penalizes me, too. But I wanted to do something for the sport that I love. I see the direction in which it goes, and I think it makes no sense. This is stupid."

On PEDs in MMA: "I think this is a big problem in the sport. Remember, because I'm an athlete, I have information internally and I know what happens. If you begin to test everyone, how (many) will be caught? I do not want to speak in public and I'm not accusing anyone, but the image of the sport may be affected."

On the UFC needing to take steps to change drug testing: "Everyone knows who, when, where and how. There are people, some doctors, and everyone will see the same. It's like all sports. Where there is money, there are ways to cheat, and it will always be so. But I think we should take steps to minimize those things, because it is not fair. I tried to change things remaining diplomatic. Unfortunately, people were not ready to change. This is OK, but I was disappointed."

On whether he'll return: "I am certain that it is a matter of time and one day, if things change, maybe I'll be back."
