He's not obligated to so I don't really care if he does it or not.

He hasn't followed through with the VADA testing and it is weird since he sort of said he would, but in no way or shape is he not getting "UFC 167 drug testing", because VADA testing is not "UFC 167 drug testing".
We all know UFC testing is a joke and any fighter subject to it means nothing because they are only pissing in a cup and not drawing blood. I went ahead and edited the thread title for you.

Struggling to find the reports of Hendrix asking for VADA testing in the first place.

This following piece claims Hendrix was never planning to participate:-

http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/0...s-wada-testing

Quote:
It appears UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will proceed with enhanced drug testing conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) for his title defense against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167.

St-Pierre also will be tested, possibly in and out of competition, by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which oversees the Nov. 16 pay-per-view event.

Hendricks, on the other hand, will participate in the NSAC's testing, but not with VADA, after St-Pierre's camp hedged on participating in an enhanced testing program recently approved by the NSAC.

Hendricks' manager, Ted Ehrhardt, is suspicious about VADA testing after he discovered that the association is footing the bill of St-Pierre's tests, which contradicts the champ's earlier claim that he would pay for the two of them.

"GSP's had a black cloud over him for years (with) people thinking he's on HGH (human growth hormone) or whatever they think he's on, and I think he's trying to clear his name, and we just happen to be the fight that he's doing it," Ehrhardt told MMAjunkie.com.

The manager said a recent report that Hendricks declined to enroll in VADA was an attempt to make Hendricks look bad despite St-Pierre's camp choice not to undergo out-of-competition testing conducted by a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) accredited lab.

"Probably if we had something to hide, it would bother us more," Ehrhardt said. "But we know we're clean; we're good. You test Johny, and the only thing he's going to test positive for is high cholesterol because he eats fast food."

In a nutshell... feck knows whats going on.

You won't find any because Hendricks only agreed to get tested properly by VADA when GSP asked him to step up after talking the talk. And now that I've read the article you posted it sure sounds like Hendricks and his camp are making up allegations in order to duck out of a proper blood test.

Quote:
No. 1 UFC welterweight contender Johny Hendricks has accepted Georges St-Pierre’s invitation to subscribe to Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA) drug testing for their upcoming UFC 167 title fight.

Last week in Las Vegas prior to UFC 162, St-Pierre said he is willing to undergo random VADA drug tests in an attempt to clean up MMA, send a message to his fellow athletes, and prove that he is a clean athlete.

“I believe VADA testing I’m up for it and I invite my opponent to do the VADA testing for the championship fight,” St-Pierre told UFC Central host Showdown Joe Ferraro last week.

“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’m ready to do it to set a good example.”

Hendricks accepted St-Pierre’s VADA invitation without hesitation.

“Heck ya!” Hendricks told UFC Central Radio late Thursday on Sportsnet 590 The Fan.

“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,” Hendricks joked.

Neither Hendricks nor GSP have ever failed a pre- or post-fight drug test in their professional MMA careers, though GSP has been accused of using performance-enhancing drugs by several opponents in the past.

Hendricks also added that he would be open to any type of testing, including Olympic-style United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) screenings.

“It doesn’t matter. Today, tomorrow, three months from now, I’ll gladly take a test for anything,” Hendricks said.

Blimey. Hendrix camp have certainly changed their tune looking at the two articles. So, did Hendrix originally accuse GSP of not being clean or something? What got GSP going in the first place?

makes sense why GSP wants the testing. If ever you were going to cheat it would be against the #2 p4p in the UFC.

i usually switch off when they start talking about ped's

its like politics, yeh i would like them to do the right thing. but wtf can i do about it


but this is another part of the reason i lean towards fighters who's main attribute is not strength

if you have a super skillful and fun to watch fighter get decisioned by a roided up gorilla then that is a HUGE detriment to the sport - well the integrity of the sport anyway

It's obvious, there is only one reason to duck a random drug test and Hendricks is apparently on that reason. This just throws me back to the Overeem days when everyone was making excuses for him not being able to take a simple piss for over a month because his distant aunt was feeling ill.

No one has RAW physically dominated guys his own size like GSP throughout modern MMA history. He does it without having any physical attributes like Jon Jones has (range advantage, sharp elbows or height/weight advantage).

GSP did 50 chin ups at age 16. Can someone grow that strong being that young without using extras ?
ok yeah GSP somehow has access to this magic unicorn piss PED that no one else in the entire sporting world has access to. Because obviously he gets it straight from the NASA lab, and everyone knows NASA needs shiny UFC belts as access passes. That's why poor Overeem, Sherk, Barnett etc. have to get the stupid show up in tests stuff made for peasants and plebes.

GSP is clean, no dirty athlete would risk calling and pushing for random any-day drug testing. No drug is so discrete that at least one of your hormones won't be off if they catch you say the very next day you poked a syringe full of it in your butt. If ALL your hormones are the exact same as normal with or without it, then it's not a PED, it's colored water.

Honestly, the lengths haters will go to. The man pushes for the strictest drug testing in the world, his most probably roided up OPPONENT ducks out, and still internet warriors will find a way to point fingers at HIM.

^I agree with this.
It's all just a distraction from what could be a very important fight for GSP. If he wins he will...
1) Pass UFC hall of famer Matt "Country Breakfast" Hughes for number of fights won in the UFC (taking sole possession of 1st place, right now they are tied) and double his consecutive win streak in the UFC;

2) Pass future hall of famer Andy "the Spider" Silva for number of UFC title fights won (taking sole possession of 1st place, right now they are tied), and number of wins against opponents that were ranked in the top 10 at the time of the fight (taking sole possession of 1st place, right now they are tied);

3) Pass future hall of famer BJ "the Prodigy" Penn for most octagon time (moving into 1st place) and length of career (not a record, simply passing a legend). He will triple Baby Jay's title defenses and the number of title fights Penn won at LW (means a lot considering many consider the Prodigy to be the LW GOAT), and quadruple his consecutive win streak in the UFC;

4) Pass hall of famer Royce Gracie for consecutive wins in the UFC (moving GSP into sole possession of 2nd place, right now they are tied);

5) Georges will compete in his 14th UFC title bout (remaining in 2nd place behind Randy "the Natural" Couture). 59% of the fights in his entire professional career (meaning he fought for titles outside the UFC) will have been for a title (16 title fights out of 27 total fights).

too bad he's getting KO'd.

But y'all carry on. I have to say watching leddellienko lecture others on unreasonable animosity is very entertaining.

Granted, its not particularly important. But surely you are slightly intrigued?

But yes... the match up is whats important, and its a great matchup thats for sure.
