i dont necessarily think Hendricks is jucing, but i would not be surprised at all if he got popped for diuretics. Given the amount of weight he cuts and how "easy" it comes off because of the Dolce diet. I could possibly see something showing up in his tests that wouldnt normally...but with that said i dont see either guy failing the test. With all the talk in the media about it they would be stupid to even consider it.
@bonesknows wouldn't a diuretic show up on the commissions test b/c it would be something u take the last week before fight? Honest question. If so it wouldn't even concern vada, right?
I know if I was going to fight snigs and he had been linked with ped speculation in the past and he volunteered us to take test that he would pay for. Now I find out he is aligned with the testing agency in some capacity then I would say no as well. ( Sorry for the run-on sentences I am on my phone)
I really don't think either are taking peds. Gsp would lose rep if he was caught and Johnny would lose the title and money if he won. I am just going to enjoy a great champion versus a worthy contender.
as for the UFC ..... starting to think they really don't give a shit about cheaters, even the punishment for getting caught is a joke. Meh MMA might go the way of boxing for me, might just have to stick with Jr sports for the real thing.
Qball telling somebody not to let their personal feelings about a fighter interfere with logic....thats funny.
Why wont GSP agree to WADA instead of VADA?
I know why Hendricks wont agree to VADA but will agree to WADA.
Dont let your nut hugging interfere with your logic!
I am not saying GSP is using PEDs but I am saying I can understand why Hendricks would want to use another testing agency if he decided to play GSP's game. And play GSP's game is exactly what it is, Hendrick's has not had to deal with the suspicions and accusations he is using PEDs like GSP does. Hendricks has shit all to prove to GSP other than if he can win the fight or not.
Hendrick's agreeing to VADA testing just puts money in GSP's pocket and does shit all for Hendricks.
I feel like Georges' marketing team failed him on this one. If he was genuinely interested in cleaning up the sport, he should be willing to be tested whenever, wherever. If Hendricks had any concerns about St. Pierre's relationship with VADA--and he voiced them eloquently enough to make a splash in MMA media--Georges could have silenced them by immediately agreeing to WADA, VADA, MADDA, whateva.
Sadly, this article doesn't make him look good. It comes off as whiney and self serving. I don't believe either fighter juices, anymore than I have suspicions about general athletes in pro sports, but it's certainly not doing him any favors.
You could just as easily say that about Georges. At least Hendricks hasn't been accused before.Quote:
Wonder if Hendricks is juicing as we speak.
Which is nothing, really.
