Oh Georges St. Pierre, always the good guy, the goody-two-shoes of the MMA world. He’s taken things one step further in how upset he has been over the accusations of taking steroids or other PEDs by offering up himself as a sacrificial lamb on the altar of VADA, by paying for VADA testing for himself out of his own pocket. If that sounds extreme, it is what GSP feels that he needs to do to prove himself as not only a great champion, but a clean champion.
This feels like some crazy overcompensating to me, how about you? Here’s what he had to say about it.
“I’m ready to pay [for our testing] myself, because I’m the champion,” St-Pierre said. “All from my purse, I paid for the tests because I’m the champion. That’s why I’m ready, I’m ready to do it. That’s a point I want to make.
“I wouldn’t mind doing it for the rest of my career,” he continued. “Of course it sucks. They can come anytime, you have to give your address and then [VADA representatives come] in the morning. It sucks. But it’s my sport and it could be an inconvenience of my job, I’ll do it no problem.”
