Looks like Georges St.-Pierre will have more issues to address in his plan to return to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Octagon due to the recent accusations of his former opponent, Nick Diaz claiming that the former UFC Welterweight Champion took steroids during their fight in UFC 158 back in March of 2013.
Diaz, who had been on a media rampage, has been tested positive for steroid use during the return match of Anderson Silva that eventually resulted to a 5-year ban by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC).
Right now, he trying to take other fighters with him as he pointed out that every fighter in the MMA world are also on the illegal drug.
“I’m pretty convinced about everybody is on steroids,” Diaz said during an appearance on Chael Sonnen’s “You’re Welcome” podcast as reported by MMAJunkie.com
“I mean everybody. Me and my brother, I don’t think (Frankie Edgar) is on steroids, but a lot of these guys, they’re on steroids. That stuff messes with chemicals in your head. I’m just talking (expletive) on everybody right now cause as far as I’m concerned, everybody’s on steroids.”
With his accusation speech, Diaz pointed out to one fighter who he fought and lost by a unanimous decision.
“Georges St-Pierre was on steroids when I fought him,” said Diaz
The UFC had just recently – or was forced to have an – implemented steroid monitoring system which tests the fighters after their matches if they were using PEDs. Diaz claims that if the UFC had implemented that system long before is that most fighters – or nearly all – will be disqualified.
“They didn’t test us because I would have tested positive for sure,” Diaz said.
“I thought it was my last fight ever. What do I care? It was almost asking too much to win and not give away that fine.”
