It would appear that Georges St-Pierre (24-2, pictured) has silenced more doubters today, after he posted the results of his Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) testing to his official Twitter account.
George posted a copy of the letters he received from VADA, which confirmed that he had been tested three times leading up to UFC 167, on September 4th, September 11th and October 15th.
The letter also confirmed that Georges was tested for a variety of performance enhancing drugs, including steroids, elevated levels of testosterone and human growth hormone (HGH).

After Georges had been accused in the past of taking performance enhancing drugs, by the likes of BJ Penn (16-9-2) and Nick Diaz (26-9, 1nc), GSP was keen to prove he was clean, stating previously;
“I invite all the high-profile athletes in the UFC to do the same, I believe it’s a good thing, it’s a pain in the butt sometimes but I believe to [improve] the sport and make the point it’s the next level to do it [VADA Testing] and I’m ready to do it and set a good example.”
Georges St-Pierre is set to defend his welterweight title later this month, when he takes on number one contender Johny Hendricks (15-1) in the main event of UFC 167 on November 16th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
St-Pierre and Hendricks will still undertake standard testing from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) where both men are likely to be tested before and after the fight, as per normal procedure.
