Doping: Hendricks has not filled out the paperwork

On September 4, 2013 at 19:47 | TVA Sports

Will Johny Hendricks hold the promise he had made , to undergo anti- doping tests for his fight against Georges St- Pierre at UFC 167 on November 16 in Las Vegas?

For now , the American has not filled out the paperwork that would give the green light to the Anti-Doping Agency VADA to do the monitor by the confrontation with GSP in the fall.

Dr. Margaret Goodman , President of VADA , confirmed to the TVA Sports on Wednesday that Hendricks ( 15-1, 8 KOs ) has not taken steps to become a "member" of the organization .

Meanwhile, St-Pierre ( 24-2 , 8 KOs ) as promised to submit to doping tests. TVA Sports has witnessed Wednesday when the champion welterweight UFC had to spend an unexpected check in full workout.

While in Montreal in August to promote the event of UFC 167 , the 32 years old Quebec fighter had invited Hendricks to submit to doping tests until they fight, just to prove to all that they do not use illegal substances. His 29 years opponent had accepted the invitation without hesitation.

"The worst thing they can find in my diet, it's a few proteins had laughed American. If eating wild boar , deer and glutamine is bad for my system , so maybe I'll fail the test . "

St- Pierre went so far out of his own pocket for their own adherence to the VADA for himself and for Hendricks , a bill that amounts to more than $ 20,000 .

GSP is featured on the website of the VADA , but not Hendricks . The organization tests on a voluntary basis athletes boxing and mixed martial arts.

It is independent and is not associated with UFC. Its mission is "to protect the health of athletes who want to demonstrate their own in their sport ," according to what is displayed VADA - Testing.org .

I heard that he sustained a minor injury to his paperwork signing fingers, and they are just being cautious with it.

I wouldn't do VADA either. Its invasive, annoying, and not worth a damn.

People need to realize that PEDs and performance based sports go hand in hand. Lance Armstrong was rigorously tested for YEARS and never failed a drug test, The only reason he was caught was cause people ratted him out. If GSP, or Hendricks wanna juice and get away with it they will.

VADA is just a feel good waste of time.

That's incorrect, I'm pretty sure. The commissions would probably have something to say about it. I'm also fairly certain that Dana said if someone failed a VADA test that he would have no choice but to pull them, I'm not positive but I think it was before Rory/BJ that Dana said that.

Fair enough then, but in that case, the UFC should be paying because what if 20k is paid and no fight happens?

It's because it's voluntary. The UFC doesn't necessarily even support VADA testing, but they can't stand in the way of fighters volunteering to be tested more thoroughly. The idea is probably that a fighter would have to be crazy to pay for extra testing if there was a chance he'd fail.

I get ya, But if the UFC ranks the results so highly, maybe they should be the ones volunteering to fund it.

GSP is crazy to pay that though. Thats a years wage to some people.

It's not that the UFC ranks the results highly, it's that the commissions would. No athletic commission is going to allow a fighter who tested positive a week ago to fight tomorrow. If the AC says a fighter can't fight because of his VADA test, then there's nothing the UFC can do about it. That's how I understand it anyway, maybe someone else has some more solid info.

I see, However Anything taken 2 months out wouldnt even be in his system anymore.

Maybe the commission should be putting money to this testing in general then.

You understand that the testing is done to ensure a fighter is also clean during training, which is where he gains his competitive edge by using drugs, right? Phone Post 3.0
