Dan uses TRT to gain an advantage too.
I'm not saying I agree with TRT but there is a difference between using it and abusing it. That's what we have here. Hendo uses it to raise his level to the normal level that he can no longer naturally produce. Not saying that's wrong but Nate used it to elevate his levels well above the natural limits to gain an advantage over even the most fit high level athletes. Dan uses the loop hole to his advantage while Nate abused it to gain an unfair advantage. They give you plenty of wiggle room to come in with high levels and he blew right past that still. IMO it was intentional cheating and he was hoping to get the fight in before he got busted or hoping he could somehow slip by unnoticed. He went beyond the already "allowed cheating" and took it to a whole new level. He shouldn't be allowed in the UFC, those levels are dangerous to his opponents and not human.
