As far as Johny (Bigg Rigg) Hendricks is concerned, Georges (Rush) St. Pierre's decision to register with the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA) is nothing more than a poor attempt at mind games.

“It's all mind games,” Hendricks told reporters during a media scrum Wednesday. “'Oh, you're on steroids,' or, 'Oh, you're on this,' or, 'Oh, I'm going to retire.' Like I said, he picked the wrong guy. He picked the wrong guy to do a drug test (with). Why didn't he do a drug test six years ago?

“I've been clean my whole entire life. Then here's some dude who doesn't know me — and has been accused for the last six years of being on something — he picks me and says I must be on something because I don't want to follow the pony train to VADA. Get out of here.”

Hendricks is set to challenge the welterweight champ in the main event of UFC 167 in Las Vegas Saturday.
