UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre (24-2) threw the gauntlet down earlier this week where increased drug testing was concerned, calling for VADA-level screening leading up to his November 16 scrap with top contender Johny Hendricks (15-1). While some competitors might have shrugged off the additional scrutiny, Hendricks has actually agreed to GSP’s request and seems eager to help the fan-favorite clean up MMA.
Hendricks spoke about the matter in an interview with SportsNet, telling the outlet…
“The worst thing that they’re going to find is a little bit of protein in my diet. If eating wild hogs and organic deer meat and a little bit of glutamine is bad for the ol’ system then I might fail.”
“It doesn’t matter. Today, tomorrow, three months from now, I’ll gladly take a test for anything.”
St-Pierre is set to face Hendricks at UFC 167. Many believe Hendricks will pose the stiffest challenge St-Pierre has taken on in his career due to the bearded brawler’s knockout power and wrestling acumen.
