Dana White Discusses George St-Pierre’s Recent Comments Against the UFC
Posted by Larry Csonka on 01.16.2014



- George St-Pierre's recent comments about the UFC's stance on drug testing have been heard by Dana White, who commented on them last night. Here is what he had to say…

On St-Pierre's Recent Comments: "What I heard is Georges St-Pierre is upset with some of the things I said at the (UFC 167) press conference," White said. "He's upset that I said that he didn't won the fight, that I thought Johny Hendricks won the fight. But if that's the case, call me man-to-man, let's talk on the phone. Let's sit down face to face. I talked to him after the fight face to face. He didn't say any of that to me. So the whole thing is a little weird."'

On The UFC's Drug Testing Efforts: "When we go out of the country and we regulate ourselves, we test everybody on the card," White said. "You want to talk about being lenient? The fight that I was screaming about, yelling about as the greatest fight I've ever seen – Mark Hunt and ‘Bigfoot' Silva. We tested the guys for that fight, we caught ‘Bigfoot' Silva and he got destroyed. "[Silva] lost the win money that we gave him, lost the bonus money that we game him, and obviously he's not getting an extra bonus. He's suspended for a year. So if that's lenient on drugs, then I guess we're lenient."

On The UFC Going Beyond What Many Athletic Commissions Do: "If you are using performance-enhancing drugs in the UFC, these guys get caught," White said. "Maybe you fought for one of these athletic commissions where they'll only test the main event, or they'll only test the co-main and main event. But then you show up at these international shows and people don't realize we test the entire card, from the first prelim to the main event. Everybody's getting tested. You're going to get caught if you're using it."

On St-Pierre Saying UFC is a Monopoly: "As far as the other thing that he said that we're a monopoly, Viacom is our competitor," White said. "They have a $40 billion dollar market cap – $40 billion dollars. I'm never going to see $40 billion as long as I live, neither will the UFC. So we're not a monopoly either. Everything that Georges St-Pierre said is a little kooky."

On St-Pierre's Recent Interviews: "He said he needed some time off because he had all these personal issues going on in his life," White said. "We said do your thing, he vacates the title, we're having a title fight in Dallas now, and we've left the guy alone. We're not asking him to do anything. Guy's out doing more interviews now than he did when he was fighting. Said he wanted to disappear for a while and go away. But here we are, talking about Georges St-Pierre, we're trying to get him on the phone. It's so weird."
