Though the fallout has been called a “clusterf---” by UFC president Dana White, Georges (Rush) St. Pierre has zero regrets over his decision to register with the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA).

“It's not a mess,” St. Pierre said during a phone interview Monday with QMI Agency. “I'm a man of my word. I said I was going to do it, so I did it.”

Prior to their welterweight-title fight at UFC 167 in Las Vegas Nov. 16, St. Pierre and challenger Johny (Big Rigg) Hendricks agreed to sign up with the independent drug-testing organization, which offers Olympic-style random screenings.

A number of MMA fighters and boxers have begun utilizing VADA in recent years, including Rory MacDonald, B.J. Penn, Roy Nelson, Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley.
