UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre has caught heat for a recent partnership to partake in voluntary drug testing prior to his bouts and this week while speaking with MMAJunkie.com, explained that he never meant to upset everyone with his actions:
“I didn’t want to piss off anybody,” St-Pierre said. “I didn’t want to piss off the UFC or the athletic commission, I just wanted to do something good for the sport. I never wanted to make people angry.
“I thought everything was going to go well and Johny was going to come and we would do it together and it would be good and would be a new thing in the sport. It will make the sport go higher, so to speak.”
“I’m the one who fights in the cage; of course I care about testing,” St-Pierre said. “I want to have a fair fight. I don’t want to fight a guy who’s on steroids.
“I said I was going to do it, and I’m a man of my word, so I did it. Johny said he was going to do it, but he didn’t do it. I don’t accuse nobody [of cheating], but if you want to know why he didn’t do it, you’ll have to ask him.”
