"There are plenty of guys in the UFC that are naturally gifted and talented fighters. If you’re testosterone levels are too low then you’re probably too old to be fighting, stop fighting! "

    Dana's a hater. I'm surprised he said that when half his roster is using TRT legally and making him his money...LoL

    Hopefully the flow of BS spews some truth this time, TRT is a ****ing joke. Fighters who claim to 'need' it are a ****ing joke.

    How can you disagree with me when the Athletic Commission grants exceptions for it and ALLOWS fighters to use it.

    Just because you think its a joke doesn't make it illegal. LoL

    so because the commission allow it means fighters cant jack up their T levels during camp and taper down for test time.

    Fighters who use it are a joke. Fans who support it are no different.

    The Athletic Commission as far as MMA goes has always been a joke, so yes people can still disagree with you and them. Get over it.

    TRT is legal because the commission allows it. They grant exceptions for it.

    The bold is your opinion and I wasn't arguing your opinion since you are entitled to it.


    Personally I don't give a **** about TRT. I don't support it or cry about it.

    bad idea, more suspensions (and there will be) = less fights.

    Who cares, lets just watch some fights.

    the point is TRT should not be legal.

    the 'commissions' decisions arnt absolute - just because they are a commission dosnt mean they cant be wrong. You are correct, its legal because they make exceptions. But it shouldnt be.

    what dana is sayin is fighters who have the trt exemption are raising their levels way too high throughout training camp and then letting them get back down to regular levels for fight night tests(i believe trt has a half life of 18 days, so it would be like my t:e ratio can be 16:1 just about a month before the fight and then by fight time my levels are back to a legal 4:1) so what dana is saying is that even if the state grants this exemption, the ufc will random test fighters during their camps to make sure they are not raising their levels too high. if trt is going to be legal this is all dana can do about it and i think its great

    Lol at the egg head dummy. Does he realize what he said? He says TRT users' levels are checked leading up to the fight to make sure there good which is true. He then says get ready **** because we are testing the **** out of you. If they already are tested what more are you going to do? Give them cavity searches? And he acts like the state commissions give 2 shits of what his baluga whale looking **** thinks. They abide by their own guidelines.

    I think he means that fighters who are granted a TUE exemption will be subject to more testing during training camps. And I expect that we'll see more situations like the one with Overeem. If TRT users are truly doing it just to maintain "normal" levels, then they shouldn't have a problem with additional testing.

    I rarely agree with DW about anything. However, this may be one time where his bullheaded arrogance actually works to benefit the sport. It could also be a line of BS he said just to placate the Bisping fans since they're in London. Hopefully the former.

    It is true that the only reason there are any 40 year old fighters who are still great is because they use TRT.

    Exactly. It's an unfair advantage to let a guy boost his T levels to "compete with the young bucks" when he already has the advantage of 10-15 years experience over the younger fighters.

    Nobody who's a good fighter is good BECAUSE of TRT.

    Hendo and Vitor have had legit skill for decades before using TRT. All TRT is doing is letting them extend their careers but they are still effective fighters because of their amazing talent.

    Its like 90% pure fighting talent 10% TRT allowing them to continue to fight at an older age.

    All fans who can't see that are jokes. Y u no like logic forum?

    Basketball is much different then fighting. The fight could last 5 seconds. They are apples and orangutans.

    Does anyone really think Dan Henderson's TRT exemption makes him a cheater? Hes one of the few that I think actually needs it.
