Video: Georges St-Pierre says MMA needs Olympic-style drug testing from independent organizations

According to Georges St-Pierre, MMA needs Olympic style drug testing which should be done by "an independent organization that doesn't have affiliations with the money" of these promotions.

In an interview with AXS TV, former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre talked about a bunch of topics, with the first being about his hiatus and any plans of a potential comeback.

"After my comeback against Carlos Condit, it was a lot of fun. It was a great training camp. After that, not so good, and the last one, not good at all. I lost the motivation. I lost the fun of it," St-Pierre said, "I need to find the fire back. The feeling that I want is that 'need' to compete again... Right now, I'm just enjoying my time (away)."

He also addressed Chael Sonnen and other PED issues in the sport, and the MMA star reiterated his stance on Olympic style drug testing.

"They need to make it like Olympic drug testing," he states, "An independent organization that doesn't have any affiliation with the money of the organization."

"The only thing I wanted to do is to raise our sport to another level. If we want that to happen, this is the next step to follow. Like Judo or any other sports, we are lacking behind (in terms of testing). It's normal because it's still a new sport, and we're still trying to figure it out, but that's what I believe is the next step."
