"The only thing is that I do not know if they are willing to support me. I thought they were ready to support me, but I was disappointed, very disappointed with this turn of events.
"There are things I can not say. I do not want to get back to the UFC because it is my employer. However, I do not take journalists for idiots. They are able to read between the lines. They are able to see what happens. "
St-Pierre, set to defend his title to Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in November, requested the pair submit to anti-doping testing leading up to the bout. Unsatisfied by the Nevada State Athletic Commission's standards of testing, St-Pierre invited Hendricks to join him for more rigorous screenings by independent organizations, picking up the tab himself. Ambiguously accused of PED use by former opponents B.J. Penn and Nick Diaz, St-Pierre has aggressively tried to dispel those claims by leading the charge for more strenuous screening methods.
"It bothers me a little fight against guys who use performance-enhancing drugs, because it is not fair. It's a nasty difference in training, argues Georges St-Pierre. There are those who say: "Doping, it does not bother me." Me, it bothers me. But I'll do it anyway, the fight. Without accusing anyone, if there are some who do not want to do the tests, I'll do the fighting. It will not be the first time. But it's just that I'm getting a little tired. "
Georges St-Pierre faces Johny Hendricks for the welterweight championship at UFC 167 on Nov. 16, 2013 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

FANPOST OF THE DAY
Today's Fanpost of the Day comes via MikeMorganMMA.
Ahead of his forthcoming appearance on Russia's Legend MMA: Emelianenko vs CroCop 2 where he'll face Alexander Yakovlev and following the announcement of his first opponent under his BAMMA contract, I spoke to the man commonly known as Semtex. Top of the agenda were his thoughts and potential issues given the calibre of opponent he will be facing when BAMMA put on their 14th event.
"He's a tough opponent, but I don't expect easy challenges. It's in my nature to test myself, my training and my faith."
His famous 'faith of a mustard seed' mantra seems deeply ingrained in his consciousness and the brutal striker, whose last four wins have ended in stoppages notably a flying knee at Cage Contender 16, has no time for doubters questioning his pedigree or whether he will secure the win.
"I'm confident I will destroy him, so he will see what it's like to be locked in a cage with the finishing machine."
The action all takes place on December 14th when BAMMA close out another successful year for them at the LG Arena in England
