St-Pierre: The UFC’s Anti-Doping Program Looks Promising

“We had a meeting with the UFC yesterday,” he said. “They hired someone for anti-doping testing, so it looked pretty good. I don’t have much to tell about it, they didn’t tell enough about the program about what they want to do, but [Novitzky] is a very reliable man in the business. He’s the one that caught [Olympic medalist] Marion Jones. So it looked really good so far, but like I said, I don’t have enough to tell right now, and I’m not a specialist. I need to see and ask a specialist what they think about it.”

Georges St. Pierre deserted the UFC and vacated his UFC Welterweight Championship in a silent act of protest of how the company was handling users of performance enhancing drugs.

“Rush” wanted to change the sport for the better and felt like sitting from the sidelines would be the best way to do that. Oddly enough, it worked! UFC implemented a rigorous testing program for their athletes which includes random tests. When he was asked of his thoughts on the matter at Friday’s fan Q&A, GSP responded positively.

LOL! — D.C. Pokes At Khabib — ‘We’ve created a trash talking MONSTER!’
