Dana White: Georges St-Pierre is ‘way out of line’ with UFC criticism



The UFC and GSP Sauga continues..  this time UFC president Dana White took to “The Dan Le Batard Show” and broke it down.  Obviously, in the recent weeks, former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre has expressed feelings towards the promotion for not supporting his extra drug testing and has claimed that he has never used performance drugs.

St-Pierre vacated the title just few months ago which left the UFC in booking a title match between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler.

Dana White was quoted:

“Georges is a little upset with me. Georges is upset with me because I said I thought Johny Hendricks won the fight. Let me tell you what. Who has said more nice things bout Georges St-Pierre over the last 10 years than me? Nobody, his parents don’t talk about him as good as I do. So, the one time I don’t think he won the fight, I’m always very honest in my opinions and what I think, and he’s upset about it. But, at the end of the day, he should have picked up the phone and made a phone call. To say that we’re not, first of all, Georges St-Pierre wanted to do the extra drug testing because other fighters have accused him of being on performance enhancing drugs. For the record, he’s never tested positive for anything, ever. And, the guy has defended the title nine times. He wanted to do the extra testing in the Hendricks fight to prove to the other fighters he’s not (on drugs). So he said, ‘let’s have Johny do it, too.’ They both wanted to use separate companies, just like boxing, and that’s never going to work out. Then he criticized us for not making it happen. They’re being drug tested by the government. The government is in there testing them. We have the most stringent drug testing not only us us, but boxing, too. So his statements were crazy. Makes no sense, he’s just upset at me. He’s upset with me, so why he’d make those statements I don’t know. I’m assuming that’s why, so, he’s crazy. He’s way out of line there.”
