I think that if you wreck your body cycling and then need to be prescribed TRT as a result, that IS abuse.

And furthermore what reason does any given fighter have to not find a dirty doc and get a scrip for it? Because of the way test thresholds are limited, few fighters are naturally likely to be anywhere near the apex of the defined testable limits, so it can only help them even if they are careful to stay within those thresholds. Basically TRT doesn't let them be normal young men in terms of testosterone, it lets them get as jacked as the uppermost natural threshold of humanity.
