This isn't the first time that an opponent has danced around the subject that St-Pierre may possibly be using Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs). In fact, St-Pierre's opponents have gotten under his skin so much that he's now trying to push for additional testing to prove that he is in fact a "clean" fighter.
Hendricks and St-Pierre discussed the possibility of doing additional testing, but couldn't agree on the agency that would perform the tests. St-Pierre went ahead with VADA testing while Hendricks didn't undergo any additional testing.
At Friday's (Nov. 15, 2013) UFC 167 weigh ins (official results here), St-Pierre hit the scales and came in at a very lean 170 pounds. More than six months ago, he seemingly did the same for UFC 158, hitting his 170-pound mark on the button prior to his eventual victory over Nick Diaz.
St-Pierre hopes to defend his Welterweight title for a ninth consecutive time on Saturday night. Does this photo comparison prove that the champ is fighting clean or does it mean that he's fought dirty and had to change up certain "habits"?
