UFC 167: Johny Hendricks 'hog wild' over Georges St. Pierre's VADA drug test demands

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight titleholder Georges St. Pierre wants Johny Hendricks to join him for Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) drug testing ahead of their upcoming UFC 167 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, scheduled to go down on Nov. 16, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Find out why here.

The bearded brawler has peed clean throughout his six-year career and immediately accepted the champion's challenge, but cautions his meaty diet might do him in.

"Heck ya!" Hendricks told UFC Central Radio on Sportsnet 590 The Fan. "The worst thing that they're going to find is a little bit of protein in my diet," he continued. "If eating wild hogs and organic deer meat and a little bit of glutamine is bad for the ol' system, then I might fail."

That makes two of us.

St. Pierre has been labeled a steroid user in previous fights, both by B.J. Penn and Nick Diaz (see those comments here and here). "Rush" has never failed a pre or post-fight drug test and is willing to jump through the necessary hoops to prove he's clean, once and for all.

And the carnivorous "Bigg Rigg" is apparently willing to join him.

Hendricks earned his shot at the French-Canadian's belt after stringing together six-straight victories inside the Octagon, highlighted by wins over Jon Fitch, Josh Koscheck, Martin Kampmann and most recently, ex-interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit.

The former collegiate wrestling phenom claims he has an "easy as that" game plan to defeat St. Pierre and once he does, expects that he will have to give an immediate rematch and defeat GSP for a second time.

Sound familiar?
