Georges St-Pierre wants to 'attack the system'
Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre had quite the interview with Michael Landsberg of TSN's Off The Record. When the discussion quickly steered towards his concerns over an expanding culture of performance enhancing drug use in MMA, St-Pierre says he isn't interested in a witch hunt. Although he refuses to name names, St-Pierre believes he's faced at least a few opponents using some sort of steroid.
"I can not answer this question, but there [are] a lot of people on drugs," says St-Pierre. "I'm never sure 100%. The reason is I don't want to accuse any individual. If you accuse one individual 20 others will arrive. What I want to attack? I want to attack the system. I don't want to attack the individual. People have to understand, I don't want to attack the UFC. I'm one of the guys that stands for the sport, stands for the UFC. I want to do that to help the brand, help the sport.

Rory MacDonald: 'I needed to lose'
The Rory MacDonald of 2013 is a very different specimen from the youngster who ran roughshod over the welterweight division throughout his first few years inside the UFC. His ferocity replaced by a measured sense of restraint, MacDonald finally fell victim to his own evolution at UFC 167, where he lost a bruising split decision to Robbie Lawler.
