Yes, he was certainly cheating using testosterone. It's an indictment of the athletic commissions that he can still get approved to use testosterone now.

If he had been undergoing twice weekly shots of testosterone cypionate, he would have had his urine samples flagged for an elevated T:E ratio for every fight he had in the years he was supposedly undergoing TRT. The fact that he didn't makes it clear that he was cycling testosterone, not undergoing legitimate therapy.

For the real estate thing, he didn't profit directly, but his family did. The lenders were hurt, so it wasn't a victimless crime. It's insulting to everyone's intelligence for him to claim he didn't know it was illegal. And this wasn't an isolated case, his plea covered something like six of these transactions.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
