Johny Hendricks Accepts GSP’s VADA Testing Challenge

Last week UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre publicly challenged Johny “Big Rig” Hendricks to participate in VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency) drug testing before their clash for the welterweight strap in November at UFC 167 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

GSP had this to say:

“I believe the sport has a problem now. When I first started fighting in mixed martial arts, it didn’t have any money. So, now more money got involved, more ways are there to be cheating to take a shortcut and I believe VADA testing I’m up for it and I invite my opponent to do the VADA testing for the championship fight. I invite if possible all the high-profile athletes in the UFC to do the same. I believe it’s a good thing. It’s a bit of a pain in the butt sometimes but I believe to make the sport (better), I’m ready to do it to set a good example.”

Hendricks recently accepted the challenge, telling sources:

“Heck ya. 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.”
