Georges St. Pierre may not be an active participant on the current mixed martial arts landscape, but his decision to take an indefinite leave of absence from the Ultimate Fighting Championship has not kept the former welterweight titleholder from speaking his mind.
In a March 7 interview with Dallasnews.com, St. Pierre took aim at the controversial subject of testosterone replacement therapy.
“It should have been done a long time ago,” he said. “There’s not another sports that accepts it. It’s a joke. For our sport, I don’t want to accuse individuals. Never once have I accused a person. I don’t want to accuse the organization. The problem is the system. One of the reasons why I stopped [fighting] is I see a lot of [expletive] going on and I got tired of it. I tried to make things change and it didn’t work.”
The Nevada Athletic Commission banned TRT in a unanimous vote on Feb. 27, and a number of other governing bodies have since followed suit.
