This is a huge headline even if you're just a casual MMA fan and anyone saying they don't care or aren't mildly interested is putting on an act.

GSP, one of the biggest stars and draws in MMA period has been accused repeatedly about using PED's for years but has always tested clean. Now that GSP has called Hendricks on his bluff to take proper tests with him Hendricks is the fighter backing out of testing and making wild allegations about GSP and VADA. For the record VADA is also testing Manny Pacquiao, meaning VADA is as legit as it gets.

In roughly two months from now Hendricks and GSP will be fighting for the WW title but only one fighter is willing to properly test for cheating, his name is GSP. If Hendricks does'nt take the test like he said he would he should not be gifted the opportunity to fight on the 20th anniversary card. I'd ban him from the sport personally and give the title shot to a much more deserving Carlos Condit if he agrees to it.

Condit vs GSP II would make for a much better and bigger headliner for UFC 167 anyways.

I wouldn't do the testing regardless and I dont juice. Id just mess with GSP.

He's juicing because he wont take a test he isn't required to take? Thats a bit of a stretch for me, I dont care if he follows through with Olympic testing because it means shit.

MMA is dirty, nobody WANTS to see it or say it but its the truth, TUE's for TRT and other drugs made drug testing a sad joke.

I dont care whos dirty and whos not. Its not a sport, its prize fighting and that's just how it is. Its pro wrestling in more ways than fans are willing to admit.

I disagree that it does'nt matter who is dirty or not and just letting everyone fight regardless while continuing to turn a blind eye to an extremely important issue. However I do agree with you that MMA has been clouded because they do not enforce proper testing and this has portrayed the UFC and other organizations in the past as dirty, but the bottom line is that MMA is a legitimate sport just like the NFL, MLB, NHL and so on who do not tolerate cheating.

There are millions of athletes who have devoted their entire lives to sport without having to cheat and it is completely unfair to them that others are allowed to get any kind of advantage because in truth they were never good enough to begin with. Cheating is a huge problem and it needs to be cleaned up.
