Georges St. Pierre the 'role model' has ‘never used steroids' and wants to 'elevate' MMA to mainstream levels
His words on a recent appearance on "The MMA Hour:"
"A lot of people have been accusing me that I'm on steroids. In the past, I always feel it was because they feel I have good athleticism so I took it as a compliment, but, when time goes by, I wanted to make it a point, I wanted to prove to the world that you can be a world champion without using steroids. I've never used steroids in my life and I wanted to make a point for myself. Third reason, I wanted to do something good for the honest people in the sport that are fighting and I wanted to do something good for the sport. As a champion, I want to be a good role model. As an athlete, outside of the Octagon, I want to elevate the sport to another level. I want the sport to be elevated to more mainstream level. I think that's the next step. I want to raise the bar and do something for the sport. I thought I was going to do it. Hendricks said he was going to do it in the past and he changed his mind. I'm still doing it because I'm a man of my word."
According to "Rush," he's already been randomly tested by VADA twice and is just waiting on the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) paperwork to get that test done, as well. Furthermore, "Rush" says he favors VADA simply because they're a highly reputable organization.
And as far as Johny's claims that St. Pierre is getting paid by VADA, the champs says its simply not true and "ridiculous" for anyone to think that.
Despite the fact that UFC President Dana White recently made the statement that all of the bickering between his top two 170 pound fighters is just making them look stupid, St. Pierre is adamant he is simply doing his part to clean up the sport of MMA, something he says is his responsibility as a champion
