UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre maintained a serious mindset leading up to last night’s headlining tilt with Nick Diaz at UFC 158 and for good reason. In addition to Diaz being a highly skilled competitor, the polarizing pugilist had also questioned St-Pierre’s character on numerous occasions leading up to the fight.
With the dust settled, St-Pierre addressed Diaz’s allegations of him using performance enhancing drugs to succeed in MMA, laughing off the insinuation at the post-fight press conference while also calling for stricter rules where steroid use was concerned.
“For someone to say to me I’m athletic, I take that as a compliment. For him, in his mind to say, ”˜He needs to be on steroids, he’s very athletic’ ”“ for me, it boosts my confidence by saying that.”
“Never took steroids in my life. I’m for Olympic testing in my sport. I’m up to do the Olympic test. I have no problem with that. I’m not a cheater ”“ never cheated in my sport. And I think TRT ”“ I’m against TRT. I’m against all this. If you want my opinion, you can test me any time, no problem. I’m for the testing. I think it should be more regulated.”
