Dana White: Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks 'both look stupid' for bungled drug test fiasco

Mark J. Rebilas -- USA Today Sports

Dana White is not impressed with your performance (enhancing drug tests).

Stupid is as stupid does.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White was talking shop yesterday, thanks to a special Google Hangout fan chat and Q&A (watch it here) which touched on a variety of topics, including the upcoming UFC 167: "St. Pierre vs. Hendricks" pay-per-view (PPV) event on Nov. 16 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Headlined by a welterweight title fight between Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne Georges St. Pierre and Johny Hendricks.

Leading up to their championship main event, St. Pierre and Hendricks became embroiled in a public game of finger pointing, following a drug test fiasco that started as an attempt to "clean up the sport," and ended with a convoluted chain of Emails involving Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer (read them here).

At this point, the piss-test predicament makes them both look stupid, according to White:

"I think it makes them both look stupid. These guys are going to get tested by the athletic commission. This is something that Georges St. Pierre wants to prove to everybody. When he fought B.J. (Penn), B.J. talked smack about him. Other people have talked stuff. The kid, not only is he another guy that's been with us since day one, he's never tested positive for anything even remotely close to anything bad. He's never tested positive for anything. He's always been a straight shooter and always professional, yet people keep talking smack about him. I just think it's crazy for him to even do this."

GSPee -- like his opponent -- will be tested by the NSAC regardless of any outside examinations, as is standard operating procedure for any "Sin City" title fight.

But "Rush" was looking to take it one step further, signing up for a litany of drug tests under the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA), an independent organization "founded to offer and promote effective anti-doping programs in boxing and MMA."

And it was his wish to have "Bigg Rigg" join him.

Unfortunately, the Hendricks camp was uncomfortable serving them a glass of Oklahoma lemonade, after his manager discovered that "Rush" may have an affiliation with Team VADA. He would, however, be open to scrutiny from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which was not openly embraced by St. Pierre's "medical advisers."

The tangled webs we weave.
