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. I'm one of the guys that fights for the legitimacy of my sport...

Anderson Silva Posts Training Photo of Him Grappling, Says, “I’m Back”
Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva posted a photo of himself back on the mats on Sunday saying, “I’m back.” It’s unclear when Silva will actually be able to return to the Octagon, but he has indicated his desire to do so, and his manager and UFC president Dana White both said they believe he will be back near the end of the year. This latest post follows others that showed Silva’s steps to recovery, including him walking unassisted down a flight of stairs and lifting weights just weeks after he broke both bones in his left leg during his UFC 168 bout with champion Chris Weidman. Good news for Silva and his fans to see him back on the mat!
