Using an eyeball examination to determine whether someone is using steroids is absurd, and it's especially prevalent in the assessment of athletes with low levels of body fat. (As if the demands of training wouldn't siphon off every available ounce of nonessential body weight.) St. Pierre is built more like a racehorse than a truck and hasn't budged from his weight class since his debut in 2002. His cardio is impressive, but so is Clay Guida 's. Yet no one accuses Guida of anything. GSP wins too often? So does Fedor Emelianenko . It's a condition of being that much better than everyone else. Happens in every sport.
"From what I’ve heard from other fighters in other camps, yeah, [St-Pierre] has done steroids and HGH, possibly. I don’t know. This is just on hearsay information that I’ve gotten…. Penn and his camp gave me a little phone call. They were saying, ‘Yeah, he’s on steroids. He’s this; he’s that.’ I said, ‘Yeah, there’s a possibility.’ The guy is pretty ripped all year round…I think Olympic-style testing would be great for our sport. At least you do it a couple times out from the fight. I think it will be a great idea."
